Babar Azam is known for his cool and composed nature. One of the best batsmen in the world, the Pakistan skipper rarely lets his emotions get the better of him on a cricket field.
The Pakistan batting mainstay makes sure to keep his emotions well under control while batting as well as leading the team. However, the calm and composed Babar Azam could not control his anger when a fan tried to take a selfie with him.
The incident reportedly took place after the Super 4 game between Pakistan and Bangladesh at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore last week. After Babar Azam led his team to an impressive 7-wicket win, one person decided to take a selfie with the Pakistan star.
As Babar Azam was walking, the fan kept walking with him too with his phone in his hand. The cricketer noticed it and briefly stopped for the selfie. The fan, however, kept walking beside him and Babar Azam eventually lost his cool. The Pakistan star was seen scolding the fan before the latter walked away.

Babar Azam eyes final spot:
Meanwhile, Babar Azam will be looking to guide Pakistan to the final of the Asia Cup 2023. The Men in Green have done really well in the competition so far and are looking set to make it to the final. In the group stage, they thrashed Nepal by 238 runs with Babar Azam scoring 151 runs.
Their second game which was against India was washed out before they thrashed Bangladesh by 7 wickets in their first Super 4 game. Riding on their pacers’ stunning display, Pakistan bowled out Bangladesh for just 193 and chased down the total with ease.
On Sunday (September 10), they locked horns against India but the match was interrupted by rain and would continue on Monday. A win against India will take Pakistan into the final of the Asia Cup for the first time since 2014.
