Babar Azam’s Father hopeful for Son’s Comeback

Pakistan will lock horns with New Zealand in the semi-final on Wednesday

KARACHI: Pakistan skipper Babar Azam's father, Azam Siddique, has extended good wishes and prayers for his son and the national team for their crucial T20 World Cup 2022 semi-final against New Zealand.

Pakistan, on Sunday, beat Bangladesh by five wickets to qualify for the last four of the mega event. However, a win over the Tigers wouldn't have been sufficient for the Men in Green to advance to the next stage, as they needed either Zimbabwe to upset India or the Netherlands to beat South Africa.

Luck favoured Pakistan at the Adelaide Oval on Sunday. The European side upset the Proteas by 13 runs to pave the way for the 2009 T20 world champions.

Ahead of the all-important clash, the skipper's father took to his official Instagram account and wished the green shirts for their victory in the upcoming match.

"A weak child is standing behind his father with his hands on his shoulders, whose hands are always raised for his safety of him, who is the owner of the whole universe. God willing, it is a blessing. And it will happen, the one who has full faith in him has given this assurance in his heart. Prayers with all of you, may Allah make us win the next two matches. Ameen. Long live Pakistan."

The ongoing T20 World Cup has not been a good one for Babar so far. The batter has failed to score big for his side, as he has amassed only 39 runs in five matches of the Super 12 stage.

However, with his reputation and records, there is no way that he can be written off just yet.

Pakistan will lock horns with last year's runners-up at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Wednesday, November 9.

Meanwhile, India will lock horns with England in the second semi-final of the mega event at the Adelaide Oval on Thursday, November 10.
