Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer has sent out a warning to Pakistan’s skipper Babar Azam after he became no.1 ODI batsman, dethroning Indian skipper Virat Kohli. As per the latest updates released on Wednesday, Pakistan’s skipper Babar Azam has ended Virat Kohli’s long reign at the top of the ICC Men’s ODI Player Rankings. He became only the fourth batsman from Pakistan to attain the number one position in the ICC rankings.
Babar’s match-winning knock of 82-ball 94 runs in the third ODI against South Africa helped him gain 13 rating points to reach his career-best 865 points.
“This is another milestone in my career, which will now require even more hard work and absolute consistency with the bat in order for me to hold on to the ranking for an extended period of time,” Azam said.
“I feel privileged and honoured to have joined the company of stalwarts like Zaheer Abbas, Javed Miandad and Mohammad Yousuf, who will always be the shining stars of Pakistan cricket. I have also previously topped the T20I rankings, but the ultimate ambition and goal is to lead the Test rankings, which are the real testament and reward to a batsman’s calibre, reputation and skills.”
Meanwhile, social media is abuzz with congratulatory messages for Pakistan’s skipper. From cricketers to fans around the world, everyone is congratulating the Pakistani skipper on achieving the new milestone.
Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer, who is known for his hilarious sense of humor and witty tweets, came up with a hilarious tweet, while reacting to the latest achievement by Babar. In his tweet, Wasim congratulated Babar but also gave him the warning to not get too comfortable at the top as Virat loves chasing. He wrote:
“Congratulations @babarazam258, well deserved. But don’t get too comfy at the top, you know how much Virat Kohli loves chasing 😉 #ICCRankings”
