Did Babar Azam Really Wear A Sports Bra?
However, as the video went viral there were many who started trolling the Pakistan captain for wearing a ‘Sports Bra’. Yes, you read that right.
Well, that’s not a Sports Bra, though it looks like one, but it is a highly sophisticated piece of technology that is designed to aid players and their clubs in their physical development, ensuring they perform at an optimum level. In fact, footballers like Lionel Messi have also been spotted wearing the same.
After registering a thumping win, Pakistan captain Babar Azam credited the team for winning the series 2-0. Babar lauded Abdullah Shafique and Saud Shakeel, who scored double centuries in the second and first Tests, respectively. Speaking at the post-match presentation, Azam said:
“Very proud to win the series, all credit to the boys and the coaching staff who’ve worked hard from the last 3-4 months. Everyone put in their efforts for us to win the series. We ticked all the boxes, worked hard on batting and fielding. Not a lot of it on the pitch for the pacers but they bowled really well in both Tests. This is a team game, Saud in the first Test and Abdullah here were outstanding.”
He added: “We are taking it series by series and will try to perform at our best. We decided to play positive cricket and play up to our strengths. We want an improvement of at least 5-10%. It’s not easy to win here, but we dominated them in both matches.”
