Rashid Latif, a former Pakistan captain, praised Ravichandran Ashwin’s response to Babar’s knock, noting that perhaps the Indian off-spinner “remains in the head” when it comes to lavishing praise on opponents.
On Day 4 of the second Test between Pakistan and Australia in Karachi, Pakistani captain Babar Azam batted brilliantly (102*) to keep his side in the game as the match progressed to the final day on Wednesday.
Several former and present cricketers applauded Pakistan leader Babar Azam, including India’s Ravichandran Ashwin, who remarked on Babar’s knock on his official Twitter profile.
Babar Azam 👏👏, going to be an exciting finish tomorrow. #PAKvAUS

“Ashwin is consistently in the lead.” It doesn’t matter if you’re doing an interview with Inzamam or praising Babar. “We had a great friendship with (Ajay) Jadeja”
The former Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman went on to explain that Ashwin tweets what he’s feeling, which Latif believes is just something he does not get from other athletes in India and Pakistan.
“There’s one something I’d want to say about Ashwin. Through his tweets, he communicates what is on his mind. This was not the first time he’s performed anything like this; he does that all the time. “All the players, on both our side and on another side, are watching the games but they don’t express themselves,” remarked the 53-year-old Rashid Latif.
Day 5 of the Australia-Pakistan match will be Important, says Rashid Latif:
On Day 4 of the second Test between Pakistan and Australia in Karachi, Pakistani captain Babar Azam performed impressively (102*) to maintain his team in the match as the match proceeded to the last day on Wednesday.
Pakistan had started off to a poor start in their 506-run chase, but the presence of Babar increased the run rate, as the skipper forged an incredible 171-run partnership alongside Abdullah Shafique (71*) off 362 deliveries.
Both teams will play a thrilling last day of the Test on Wednesday at the National Stadium in Karachi. Although Babar and his teammates hope it continues their resurgence, Australia could be one wicket away from sealing their first series victory.
