A ‘satirical tweet’ from a verified Twitter account on Babar Azam was reportedly picked up by various news websites resulting in an unnecessary controversy. The tweet from a parody account shared videos and WhatsApp chats claiming they’re from the Pakistan captain which soon went viral.

In reply to a parody account on Twitter, a user wrote, “May God protect us all and our privacy. First of all this doesn’t seem to be Babar Azam and second even if it is him then we need to stop indulging in prohibited activities and not ruin anyone reputation whether it’s male or female.”
What a clown media we have, mirror now telecasted a dedicated show based on my satirical tweet and put nasty allegations on Babar Azam without even verifying the source of the news (me). I was the one who started bf in team story, this was fake. Apologise to Babar — Dr Nimo Yadav (@niiravmodi)
Another Twitter user voiced a similar opinion and commented, “Don’t interfere in anyone’s personal life. Every cricket fan respects Babar for his humbleness and excellence in cricket. We have nothing to do with his personal life.”

Another fan urged the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to protect Babar Azam.” I don’t know what is happening in PCB. Babar Azam is a world-class player, don’t spoil his career with unnecessary allegations. If PCB spoils his career then Pakistan team will suffer a lot in international matches. Pakistan may even become another weak team like Kenya,” the comment read.
On cricketing front, Babar’s leadership skills were severely criticised after Pakistan lost a three-match ODI series against New Zealand after the preceding Test series ended in a draw.

Babar was last seen in action during the third ODI against New Zealand on January 13. He did score two half centuries in the three ODIs against the Kiwis but the performances wen in vain as Pakistan lost the series 1-2.
Doesn't take too much to be happy ☺️ — Babar Azam (@babarazam258)
