T20 World Cup: Babar Azam interacts with cricketing icon Sunil Gavaskar in Dallas – Watch | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: In a heartwarming moment for cricket fans, Pakistan skipper Babar Azam recently interacted with legendary Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar in Dallas, USA. The Pakistan team arrived in Dallas on Saturday to kickstart their preparations for the 2024 T20 World Cup.
Gavaskar is also in Dallas as part of his role as a commentator with the tournament’s broadcast team.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) shared a video on its official X handle, offering fans a glimpse of the meetup between the two cricketing icons. The video shows Babar and Gavaskar shaking hands and engaging in a friendly conversation, demonstrating the sportsmanship and mutual respect between players from the two rival nations.

As part of their World Cup preparations, Pakistan played a four-match T20I series against England. However, the series didn’t yield the desired results for Babar’s side, as they lost 0-2, with two matches being washed out due to rain. Despite the setbacks, the interaction with Gavaskar is seen as a positive moment for Babar and the team as they gear up for the World Cup.

Pakistan are set to open their T20 World Cup campaign against co-hosts USA on June 6 in Dallas. This will be followed by a highly anticipated clash against arch-rivals India in New York on June 9, a match that promises to be one of the highlights of the tournament.
The Pakistan team and their fans are hopeful for a strong performance, looking to make a significant impact in the global cricketing event.
