‘Babar Azam Is A Champion’ will be the theme song for the 2023 Asia Cup. Matthew Hayden expects Pakistan’s captain to perform against Sri Lanka


<p>Prior to the Super Four match versus Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2023 competition, Australian veteran Matthew Hayden lauded Pakistan skipper Babar Azam. Babar Azam is a champion, according to Hayden, and the Australian icon anticipates him to perform well in their crucial matchup in Colombo against Dasun Shanaka’s team. On September 14, the two teams will square off at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-180603″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-download-56-4.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com download 56 4″ width=”1497″ height=”868″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-download-56-4.jpg 295w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-download-56-4-150×87.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1497px) 100vw, 1497px” title=”'Babar Azam Is A Champion' will be the theme song for the 2023 Asia Cup.

<p>Naseem Shah has been substituted in the present continental championship match by right-arm fast bowler Zaman Khan, according to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Naseem suffered a shoulder injury while playing against India. The team’s medical staff is still keeping an eye on him and taking all necessary measures with the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup in 2023 in mind.</p>
<p>Pakistan has been represented by Zaman Khan in T20I matches. He has taken four wickets at an average of 32.5 and a 6.66 economy in six T20Is for Pakistan. The Men in Green captain scored a match-winning 151 runs against Nepal in the tournament opener before being out cheaply in each of his last two innings against Bangladesh and India.</p>
<p>After a slight slump in his previous two knocks, Hayden was recently asked on the Star Sports program Game Plan whether he expected Babar to do well against Sri Lanka. Hayden said, “Babar Azam is a champion. He bounces back from these situations repeatedly because champions do that. When you consider the statistical comparison between Virat Kohli and Babar Azam at the same point, Babar Azam is really in the lead in that shoot-out match.</p>
<p>“Considering how important he is to the composition of the Pakistani squad, I have no doubts that he can succeed against Sri Lanka in the shootout. Babar is crucial in terms of the caliber of that batting unit’s skill, not only because he is the leader.</p>
