Pakistan, the supposedly only republic state in the Islamic world, is witnessing its worst inflation in 70 years. Currently, inflation stands at more than 9 per cent and has driven many into suicides. Despite other severe reasons to look upon, the Islamist country is now crying its noses off for a petty reason after David Warner was handed the Man of the tournament award rather than Babar Azam.
Warner In, Babar out:
Reportedly, Pakistan suffered a heartbreaking loss when Pakistan cricket team skipper Babar Azam was sidelined to give the Man of the Tournament award to David Warner for the recent T20 World Cup. Undoubtedly, both the players gave a top-notch performance to help their team lift the trophy. But there exist some particular reasons why Warner was preferred for the award rather than Babar Azam.
While Babar’s campaign ended at the hands of Warner’s Australia at the semi-final stage, Warner dominated the New Zealand bowlers to take the team past the finish line by 8 wickets that further led the team to lift the T20 World Cup crown. Even though David Warner scored 14 runs fewer than Babar and only managed three half-centuries, he has been presented the honour because he had maintained a significantly higher strike rate, more than 20 runs per 100 balls higher than the Pakistani opener.
Pakistan’s meltdown over rejection of Babar:
Soon after the news circulated throughout the media, Former Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Akhtar took to twitter to express his resentment and tweeted, “Was really looking forward to see @babarazam258 becoming Man of the Tournament. Unfair decision for sure.”

BCCI has nothing to do with the selection process of the Man of the Tournament award. But Pakistanis believe otherwise. Waqas Amjad, believing BCCI had a role to play in the selection, tweeted, “Retweet if you think Babar Azam lost Man of the Tournament Award due to BCCI bias.”

However, Arfa Feroz Zake, a Journalist took them to cleaners and tweeted, “Babar Azam scored consistently and ended up topscorer in #T20WorldCup but lets be fair. David Warner scored match winning knocks for Australia in both the matches of knockout stage! Just remained a scratch behind Babar Azam in most runs. Warner earned man of the tournament trophy.”

‘Emotional’ Pakistanis on the other hand, bereft of sportsmanship and concrete facts, did not even think twice before playing its aged-old ‘Pakistani’ propaganda to attack India. Witnessing the World Cup’s history, one can easily understand that the Man of the Tournament award is not handed over to a player on the grounds of maximum run score. Other than piling up runs, it requires a great strike rate and consistent performance for any player to receive the award. The decision of the ICC to select Warner for the Man of the Tournament award is justified.
Semi-Final losers are seldom rewarded. Why do they think BCCI did not exert any pressure when a Wold Cup best eleven was selected? No Indian was in that eleven.
Did your boss give you a raise after after your hatred filled article?
No to forget, it was about a lot more than cricket.
Pretty Islamophobic you are.
P.S…Babar made more runs than Warner in one less innings. Truly deserved the award.
If you think so, so be it. No one can educate an educated idiot beyond a point. Babur’s team didn’t manage to reach the finish line and that’s it. Warner managed to repeat the performance in finals. The pressure of finals and contributing in finals is above the 14 runs less he scored than Babur in the 1 extra innings that he played. I am surprised that these kind of statements come from senior cricket players than what to say about the public. You can think whatever you want but you guys are sore losers and this is a case of sour grapes. God forbid, had New Zealand lost to Afghanistan, you guys would have had a melt down as a country. That’s what was predicted. Do you trust any non muslim at all? No, even Hasan Ali was tattered to pieces than what to say of non Muslims. It’s good the entire team of Pakistan doesn’t have a non Muslims player. Or he can get killed by someone for a dropped catch.
Don’t talk about suicides in pakistran.check your data that your closest friend shared about few days ago how suicide percentage got high in your country.if you can’t find that report I will send you a copy.
Talking about statistics, don’t show us stats. Just give stats of how many non muslim girls got married off to someone their father’s age. How many army men surrendered to India in Bangladesh? And talking about news, Indian media is very open and transparent. It’s not like China where they blackout atrocities against Uighur Muslims. So first check if the data that you are comparing with ours is authentic. Surely, they would want to keep them low in Print.
