Pakistan have made an absolutely stellar start to their T20 World Cup 2021 campaign, winning three games on the trot. They have nearly confirmed a place in the semi-finals and many even back them to get the glory this time around. Skipper Babar Azam has led the team from the front, registering two half-centuries in the first three games.

While the talismanic batter looked cool as a cucumber on the field, he was fighting with his emotions inside. Babar’s father Azam Siddique took to Instagram on Saturday (October 30) and made a shocking revelation. Siddique revealed that Babar’s mother was fighting with her life on the ventilator when the high-voltage India vs Pakistan game was underway on October 24 in Dubai.

He also revealed that Azam played the first three games in severe distress. :Some truth my nation should know now. Congratulations to all of you on the three victories. There was a big test at our house. The day the match against India was played, Babar’s mother was on ventilator. Babar played all three games with severe distress,” Siddique wrote in Urdu while sharing a family picture.

A post shared by Azam Siddique (@azam.siddique56)

“I don’t want to come here and it was not suppose to be, but I came so that Babar may not get weak. The purpose of sharing this is to not criticize his national heroes without any reason. And yes, I know, if I don’t get paradise, If you get a place, you have to take an exam. Long live Pakistan,” he added.

The post went viral in no time as fans couldn’t believe Azam was going through with such stress all this while. However, it didn’t affect his performance. The 27-year-old scored a match-winning half-century during the historic win against Indi and crossed the 50-run mark against Afghanistan as well. With Pakistan’s remaining games lined up with Namibia and Scotland, Azam is expected to extend his sensational run.

Meanwhile, Azam will next take the field against Namibia at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on November 2. A win here would officially give Pakistan a spot in the semi-finals. Hence, the Men in Green have all the reasons to put their best foot forward.
