In the end, Pakistan lost to Australia and ended their T20 World Cup journey. However, Babar Azam’s team was unbeaten in the tournament before that. The beginning of their dream journey was losing to India in Dubai. That win was naturally something special for Pakistan যে their first win against India in the World Cup. Babur also says that the best moment for them in 2021 is to lose to India.
In 1992, Pakistan faced India for the first time in the ODI World Cup. The two teams have met seven times in the ODI World Cup till 2019, Pakistan has lost each time. After the T20 World Cup started in 2006, Pakistan lost to India in two matches, including the final. All in all, even though they played six times before 2021, there was not a single victory. Finally he opened the gerota this time.
Looking back, that seems to be the best moment for Babar. “It was a great achievement for us as a team,” the Pakistan captain said in a Pakistan Cricket Board podcast. Because, we have not been able to beat India in the World Cup for many years. This is our best moment of the year. “
After losing to India, Pakistan has not lost any more matches in the Super Twelve. They also put pressure on Australia in the semi-finals. However, Pakistan did not go to the final in the great innings of Matthew Wade. That was the most frustrating moment of the year for Babar, “I’ve suffered the most this year. Because, as a team, we were playing so well. ‘
Pakistan has blown away the hosts by visiting Bangladesh immediately after the World Cup. He has also won all the matches in the T20 series after the Tests. After returning to the country, they also won the T20 series against West Indies. However, the ODI series has been postponed after the West Indies team was attacked by coronavirus.
All in all, the year did not go badly for Pakistan. But there is another thing that satisfies Babur, ‘It is the greatest satisfaction to see young talented cricketers come forward at a crucial time. Our young and talented cricketers are coming up – it’s great to see. “
Personally, the year has been great for Babar. He has started the new year from the top in the batsmen’s rankings in ODIs and T20s and is also in the top ten in Tests. His partnership with Mohammad Rizwan, who set a record in T20, has also set a new record. But Babar says personal gain only gives him joy if he helps the team win.
