Pakistan actress Mawra Hussain has come out in support of Babar Azam, who is the most successful captain of the Pakistan cricket team.
The actress takes a dig at the media for being “inappropriate” in their treatment of the cricketer and urges them to respect his position.

Mawra’s comments were in response to the recent press conference that referred to Babar Azam as the “former” captain of the team, despite the fact that he is still very much in charge, but rested for the three-match series against Afghanistan.
The actress slammed the media for what she saw as an attempt to undermine Azam’s authority and create a negative agenda against him.
“Just like most of the media.. a journalist yet again being inappropriate… Leave the team alone.. they’re more United than you think.. & learn to respect the cricketer the world is bowing down to! MashaAllah,” Mawra said in a tweet.

Yesterday, Islamabad United skipper, Shadab Khan, corrected a journalist for referring to Peshawar Zalmi and Pakistan skipper, Babar Azam, as former captain in the post-match conference on Thursday in PSL 8.
“Babar Azam is the current Pakistan captain – he’s resting (for the Afghanistan series). He is our King and I am his Wazir. Since King is resting, so the Wazir is going for the series in his absence,” Shadab said.
Shadab Khan ♥️ Babar Azam
