IND vs PAK: Watch- Iftikhar Ahmed’s Brilliant Response After Journalists Calls Him ‘Chacha’ And Babar Azam ‘Bhatija’
Pakistan's Asia Cup 2023 campaign got off to a great start on Wednesday, August 30. At Multan Cricket Stadium, they beat Nepal by a huge 238-run margin.
With the bat, Babar Azam and Iftikhar Ahmad were very important to Pakistan's win. The leader of Pakistan showed how good he was by hitting 151 runs off of only 131 balls. This was his 19th ODI century.
In the 50-over format, Iftikhar showed how good he could be by getting his first hundred. He did this by hitting 109 runs without being out on just 71 balls.
With the help of their impressive centuries, the Men in Green put up a big score of 342/6, leaving Nepal battling at 104 all out while the Pakistani bowlers caused chaos.
Iftikhar, who is known as "chacha" (uncle) by his friends and fans, spoke to the press at a press conference after the game.
During the press conference, a journalist asked about Iftikhar's relationship with Babar and jokingly called Babar Iftikhar's "bhatija" (nephew).
Iftikhar's answer was very funny: "Bhatija also gave Chacha confidence, and Chacha also gave Bhatija confidence. Babar is the best player in the world. The way he deals with strike change makes things easier. So, we enjoyed the time we spent hitting together."
Pakistan will play India on September 2 in Pallekele in a match that everyone is looking forward to. After their stunning win over Nepal, they are full of confidence.
