Today’s Asia Cup match between India and Pakistan will take place at the Pallekele Stadium in Kandy. The players from the two teams exchanged greetings during a practice session on the eve of the much anticipated match.
The supporters find it difficult to remain composed as they watch possibly the biggest cricket game. There is ongoing discussion regarding who is the better batter between Virat Kohli and Babar Azam, therefore all eyes are on them.
In light of the most recent occurrences, Babar spoke to the media. He was once more questioned about his similarities to Virat. The Pakistani captain, however, garnered the admiration of the crowd when he responded that there is reciprocal respect and that he has been taught to respect his predecessors.
“I’d prefer to stay out of the discussion and let the fans have their say who enjoy debating it. I recognize that everyone is entitled to their own viewpoint. In addition, I value respect between people. I have always been trained to respect my superiors, regardless of their nationality, and he is older than I am.
He served as a wonderful influence for me. I spent a lot of time listening to his interviews in the start of my career. Even in 2019, I had the opportunity to speak with him, which was a truly worthwhile experience for me. I’m sorry, but I can’t go into detail about what we talked about. Players from all over the world get along well and appreciate each other, which is simply amazing.
