Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan, has explained why he wrote Virat Kohli a stern letter last year. The great hitter stunned the cricketing world with a “This too shall pass” tweet directed at a competitor. It is typical for many former Pakistani athletes to support Indian athletes. However, nobody had anticipated a player like Babar to tweet in this manner.
In July 2022, when Kohli wasn’t at his best, Babar tweeted the message. He was dismissed for just 16 runs the day before in an ODI at the Lord’s Cricket Ground against England, which the hosts won by a score of 100 runs. The former India captain also didn’t have a century at that time.since his 2019 136-run performance against Bangladesh. He had 806 ODI runs at an average of 36.68 from his previous 100. He was unable to even manage some respectable runs in T20 cricket.
Babar came to Twitter to encourage Kohli and stated, This too shall pass. Be persistent. Along with the post, he included a photo of the two of them. Kohli has also expressed gratitude in response to the support. Continue to shine and ascend. I hope the best for you.
The Pakistani captain confessed in an interview with ICC Digital Insider, Abbas, that he eventually wanted his on-field competitor to win. He also claimed that he posted the tweet with the intention of boosting someone’s confidence.return to life. He continued by saying that athletes should support one another when things get tough.
At the ICC T20 World Cup 2022’s Super Four match against Afghanistan in September, Kohli scored 122 to quickly regain his form. He also scored an incredible 82 runs in the T20 World Cup match at Melbourne Cricket Ground against Pakistan, his bitter rivals. His unbeaten performance enabled India to defeat the Babar-led team in a remarkable victory.
