T20 World Cup 2022 PAK vs NED: Twitter Is Flooded With Hilarious Memes On Babar Azam
Pakistan captain Babar Azam has had a forgettable T20 World Cup 2022 with the bat so far as the right-handed opener has recorded three single-digit scores in outings.
His failures with the bat were compounded by Pakistan’s losses to India and Zimbabwe, which meant that Pakistan’s semi-final fate is out of their hands and they are hoping for India to defeat South Africa.
His latest abject innings came against the Netherlands on Sunday in Perth. The Pakistani skipper got run out for 4 runs in the second over of the chase of the target of 92.
To a full and in-line delivery from Paul van Meekeren, Babar drove it straight to mid-on and set off for a quick single. Roelof van der Merwe, however, came in quickly at mid-on, swooped the ball, and threw it at the non-striker’s end. Roelof van der Merwe hits the bull’s eye and Babar Azam had to take the long walk back after another cheap score of 4 runs, and his lean patch continued.
In the first match against India at the MCG, Babar was dismissed for a golden duck by the left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh, who trapped the batter lbw. In the second match, vs Zimbabwe, Babar was outdone by seamer Brad Evans as his leading edge went straight to the point fielder Ryan Burl.
After his low score against the Dutch, Babar Azam was once again trolled heavily on social media for his lean patch in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022.
Netizens roasted the Pakistani skipper mercilessly. Here are some of the tweets:

Meanwhile, the Pakistani bowlers were all over the Netherlands' batters and restricted them to only 91 in 20 overs. Leg-spinner Shadab Khan took a three-wicket haul while Mohammad Wasim bagged a brace. With this win, Pakistan continue to keep their semi-final hopes alive, but they will need other results to go their way.
