Malala has been staying in the United Kingdom since October 2012 after being shot on the face by a Taliban gunman. Back then, she used to campaign for education for girls. After she underwent initial treatment in Pakistan, she was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in the UK. She has continued living in the UK and campaigns for human rights and education for girls in Pakistan.
As far as Pakistan cricket is concerned, it was going through a tough phase especially after New Zealand and England pulled out from their tours of the country. However, Babar Azam and Co. have shown nerves of steel and won all their five games in the Super 12 of the T20 World Cup 2021.
