Both Pakistan and New Zealand are currently competing against each other in a three-match One-Day International series that began on Tuesday. This comes after the Test series between the two countries was tied after both games in the series were played.
The team captained by Babar Azam, which had a disappointing run in the longest format of the game in the previous year, will try to redeem itself in one-day internationals, which will also serve as a build-up for the 2018 World Cup.
Regarding one-day internationals, Iceland Cricket has provided a rather humorous take on Pakistan’s all-time ODI team, which included Babar Azam in the role of drinks boy for the team.
Iceland Cricket, which is known for publishing amusing content on social media related international events and teams, recently turned to Twitter in order to identify the all-time One-Day International squad of Pakistan. Former skipper Imran Khan was given the role of captain in this team.
“Today, we are pleased to name the following members of Pakistan’s all-time One-Day International (ODI) team: S Anwar, Z Abbas, I Ul Haq, J Miandad, M Yousuf, I Khan (captain), S Afridi, M Khan (wicketkeeper), W Akram, W Younas, S Mushtaq, W Akram, M Khan (wk), W Akram, W Younas, S Mus B. Azam, M. Hafeez, and Shoaib Malik are the boys serving drinks.”
We are pleased to announce the following players for the Pakistani ODI team of all time:
S Anwar Z Abbas
I Ul Haq J Miandad M Yousuf I Khan (c) S Afridi M Khan (WK) W Akram W Younas S Mushtaq
B. Azam, M. Hafeez, and Shoaib Malik are the boys serving drinks.
However, other supporters were upset by the post because it made fun of Babar and because former bowler Shoaib Akhtar was not included in the squad. These supporters expressed their anger in the comments section of the post.
“Babar Azam drinks boy?? Are u kidding me. Guy is without a doubt the greatest batsman Pakistan has ever produced “remarked one of the fans.
Babar Azam is a gentleman in every sense of the word. He never criticises the actions of others and he doesn’t stir up any controversy. I don’t understand why someone would have hatred for him.
