‘Tuk-Tuk academy player of the tournament’ – Fans troll Babar Azam for his horrible run in 20-20 World Cup 2022

The 28-year-old star batter could score only 124 runs in seven innings which is quite highly unexpected from the batter of his stature.

Babar Azam

Pakistan skipper Babar Azam is considered as one of the finest modern-day batters in the cricketing World. But the 28-year-old star batter failed to deliver in the 20-20 World Cup 2022 for the men in green. Babar could score only 124 runs in seven innings of the seven matches he played.

Babar could register a very low average of 17.71 with only one half-century to his name in the first semi-final against New Zealand. The cricket fans took no time in trolling the World number three T20I batter for his sluggish approach in batting throughout the entire 2022 edition of the 20-20 World Cup.

They took to Twitter and named Babar Azam as the player of the tournament of the ‘Tuk-Tuk academy”, the recently innovated word by the trollers for some of the renowned players in the cricketing world who couldn’t deliver in the recently concluded marquee cricket competition in Australia.

Here’s how fans reacted to Babar Azam’s poor batting in the 20-20 World Cup 2022:

Speaking of the final match between Pakistan and England, the three lions’ skipper Jos Buttler asked the men in green to bat first at the typical bowling-friendly turf of Melbourne Cricket Ground Melbourne. The 2009 20-20 World Cup winners could post a total of only 137 runs for the loss of eight wickets in the allotted 20 overs.

The young 24-year-old England all-rounder Sam Curran scalped three wickets by conceding just 12 runs in his quota of four overs. Other than him, senior leg spinner Adil Rashi also claimed two crucial wickets by conceding 22 runs in his quota of four overs.

While chasing the target, England looked in a trouble for once when they lost their five wickets, but once again it was Ben Stokes who crossed the finishing line for his team. The 31-year-old’s 51-run knock eventually helped the three lions to win the 20-20 World Cup after a wait of 12 years.
