Irfan Pathan Gave A Heart-Winning Reply To Babar Azam’s Tweet For Virat Kohli: Pakistan’s captain Babar Azam has been receiving praises from all corners after his Tweet for Virat Kohli went viral. Virat Kohli returned to the Indian ODI side after recovering from a mild groin strain and he looked in great touch. However, he once again failed to make it big as he managed to score only 16 off 25 balls.

Meanwhile, on Friday, on the eve of the first Test match between Sri Lanka and Pakistan, Babar Azam explained the reason behind his Tweet. He said:

“As a player myself, I know you can go through such a phase (out of form) and I also know what a player goes through in such a phase. In those times, you need support. I just tweeted thinking that it will give just some support. He is one of the best players,”

He added: “He is playing a lot of cricket and he knows how to come out of these situations. It takes time, if you back players, it will be really good,”
