“You’re looking for a hundred rather than putting the team first, hundreds are great, stats are brilliant but it must be team first,” said Simon Doull during his commentary stile while Peshawar Zalmi and Quetta Gladiators.

Subsequently, the comments from Doull didn’t go down well with a section of the Pakistan Cricket fans. Later on, Doull was harassed on social media. But a wider section of the cricket fans didn’t look happy after this response from the Pakistan fans.

Here’s how fans reacted to the harassment of Simon Doull from Pakistan fans:

Talking about cricket, Babar played a knock of 115 runs off 65 balls. Earlier before the 15 overs, Babar was playing with a bit of a fast approach that possibly helped Peshawar to reach a total of 240 runs for the loss of two wickets. But this score would have been a bit more if Babar would’ve shown intent when nearing his century. Other than Babar, it was Saim Ayub who played a knock of 74 runs off just 34 balls with six boundaries and five sixes to his name.

While chasing the target, the Gladiators comfortably chased down the target only in 18.2 overs courtesy of Jason Roy’s blistering knock of 63 balls with 20 boundaries and five sixes to his name. Eventually, Quetta won the match by eight wickets.

Coming back to Babar Azam, he had been on the receiving end of criticism in the past for his slow strike rate. Former Pakistan pacer Aqib Javed criticized Babar and his opening partner Mohammad Rizwan for poor strike rate.
