Babar Azam was the chief architect of the victory, smashing a sensational century to lead the Strikers in successfully chasing down the target of 189 runs in just 19.5 overs.
Babar Azam’s widespread popularity in Sri Lanka was evident once more, as he warmly obliged to sign an autograph and take pictures with a young fan following the match.
The child’s face lit up with joy and excitement as she exclaimed, ‘Thank you so much, Babar Azam! I love you so much!”
The Colombo Strikers’ official Twitter account shared the video, and it’s rapidly gaining popularity on social media, with countless Babar Azam fans showing their love for the heartwarming moment.
Babar Azam has always shown appreciation for his fans, and this isn’t the first instance. Earlier, after winning the Test series against Sri Lanka, the Pakistan captain was spotted gifting his Test jersey to a young fan.
