Upon receiving the award, Babar expressed his delight and gratitude, emphasizing the exceptional month that he and his team had experienced. He also spoke about the joy of playing in front of passionate crowds in Multan and Lahore during the Asia Cup.
One of the highlights for Babar was his monumental ODI score of 150-plus in Multan, which was especially meaningful as it was achieved in front of his own people. Looking ahead, Babar spoke of his eagerness to maintain his current form as the final stages of the Asia Cup approach and the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup looms.
He remains determined to bring joy and happiness to the millions of Pakistan fans. Throughout the month, Babar demonstrated remarkable performance, particularly in the 50-over format, making him a cricket stalwart in the Asian subcontinent.
