‘Time to get rid of ‘selfish’ Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan’: Shaheen Afridi’s viral tweet is taking the internet by storm


Pakistani skipper Babar Azam and his partner in crime Mohammad Rizwan stole all the attention as they led their team to a memorable 10 wicket victory over England in the second T20I. After the winner of the Pakistan victory, Shaheen Afridi had a rather sarcastic way of praising his skipper Babar and Rizwan.

Shaheen, who is currently recovering from an injury in London, took to Twitter calling the Pakistani openers “selfish” as they could have ended the match earlier as well.

“I think it’s time to get rid of Kaptaan @babarazam258 and @iMRizwanPak. They are selfish players. Agar sahi se khelte match 15 overs me finish hojana chahye tha. Ye akhri over tak le gaye. Let’s make this a move Nahi? Absolutely proud of this amazing Pakistani team,” Shaheen wrote in his tweet that went viral in no time.

Babar and Rizwan attacked England with aggressive strikes as the visitors couldn’t hold on to their chances of breaking the tie.

Babar entered Thursday’s game after just 98 runs in his previous seven T20s, including 68 runs in the six Asia Cup matches in the United Arab Emirates and a knockout of 30 in Tuesday’s opening game of the series.

Rizwan took advantage of two let-offs before completing his half-century, but Babar hit 11 limits and five sixes against both pace and spin.

Rizwan also scored half a century in the first match, which England won by six wickets on Tuesday. He was more aggressive in the batting power play when Alex Hales dropped him while running backwards half way through.
