Following Pakistan’s victory against Bangladesh by eight wickets in the second T20 International to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series in Dhaka, vice-captain Shadab Khan attributed the win to team effort.
“Another team effort for that victory,” he wrote on Twitter.
However, the all-rounder did not stop here. Taking a jibe at skipper Babar Azam’s earlier remarks, the player shared a blurred image of his phenomenal catch during the first innings.
“Aur ek zaruri baat: Budha nahi hua abhi mai @babarazam258 [One more important point, I am not old yet],” he stated.
Seems like Khan had not forgotten his skipper's remarks during the ICC T20 World Cup warm-up match against West Indies.
During the match, there was some light-hearted banter on the ground between the Pakistani fielders as the West Indies innings began their innings.
After Khan had missed a catch, the skipper in a friendly manner, had pointed out his lack of agility and said, ”Budday ho gaye ho, jawani vich tera run out si [You’ve gotten old; it would have been a wicket if you were young].
