Babar Azam, Pakistan’s newly-appointed ODI captain, didn’t mince phrases in response to former cricketer Tanvir Ahmed’s suggestion on enhancing his English talking abilities.
Cricketers from Pakistan together with former skipper Sarfraz Ahmed have usually been trolled for his or her weak English language talking abilities within the post-match press conferences and displays. So Ahmed in a Youtube video had suggested Azam enhance his general persona and be taught English to deal with the issue.
“Babar Azam also needs to improve his English, which is necessary. Whenever someone becomes a captain, he has to talk during the toss and post-match presentation. Plus, he will also give interviews on various channels when he tours different countries,” Tanvir stated.
The 41-year-old, who had represented Pakistan in 5 Tests, 2 ODIs and 1 T20I, then confronted flak on social media for his controversial feedback.
Azam responded to the comment in a video which was broadly shared on social media and stated, “I’m a cricketer, my job is to play cricket. I am not a ‘Gora,’ who knows English completely.”
“Yes, I am working on it, but you learn these things over some time, you can’t just suddenly learn it,”.
The Lahore-born cricketer also talked about cricket after the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We know better than other teams how it feels to play without a crowd having played most of our cricket in Dubai in last ten years,” he said.
“It’s not a great feeling for fans, and it’s not great for us also,” he concluded.
