Azam led Pakistan will take on England in the final of the T20 WC on Sunday at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. There has been uncanny resemblance between the side’s campaign in the ongoing tournament and the 1992 50-over World Cup, which Pakistan won under the leadership of Imran Khan. There have been many memes and jokes about the resemblance between the two World Cup campaigns and now, a comment made by former India captain Sunil Gavaskar.
Before the semi-final between India and England at the Adelaide Oval, Gavaskar said that if Pakistan do go on to win the tournament, then Babar Azam would become the Prime Minister of the country in 2048.
“You know what, if Pakistan do win the World Cup, in 2048 Babar Azam would be the Prime Minister of Pakistan,” Gavaskar said on Star Sports.
