Babar Azam will kick off his PSL Season eight on 14 February 2023. He is the skipper of Peshawar Zalami this time around. Now, his team will face Karachi Kings in the National Stadium Karachi. However, he is currently the leading highest scorer in the history of the Pakistan Super League.
Babar has scored 2413 runs in 66 innings, at an average of 42.33 as of now. So, now, the Zalmi fans will also hope for such consistency from the star Pakistan skipper. Now, ahead of his tournament opener, the Pakistan media shared an image of Babar with a collage of how Allu Arjun was in a poster of his blockbuster movie ‘Pushpa’.
Babar Azam is all set to lead Peshawar Zalmi in this edition of the Pakistan Super League
They tried to compare the swag between the Indian superstar and the Pakistan skipper. The Pakistan media shared the image with a caption: “Swag #Cricket #BabarAzam”. Speaking about the movie ‘Pushpa’, was a 2021 Indian Telugu-language action drama film. The film came out as the highest-grossing Indian film in 2021. It even ranked among the highest-grossing Telugu films of all time. Even, the Australian cricketer, David Warner praised Allu Arjun for his performance in the movie. On Twitter, he wrote: “How good that @alluarjun took out the @filmfare awards for #Pushpa such an amazing achievement we loved it soo much. Well done and congrats to all involved.”
On the other hand, Babar Azam has received a lot of criticism for his batting display in the shortest format of the game. For the Men in Green, Babar has played 99 matches and scored 3355 runs in 94 innings. His average has been 41.41 while his strike rate has been 127.80. So, his strike rate has been a significant concern for the fans throughout his career. Now, after seeing such an image, fans went crazy and shared funny tweets to troll the Pakistan media. They even claimed that it is quite insulting for Allu Arjun to get compared with the Pakistan skipper.
Here is the shared tweet:
