The Men in Green’s skipper stated that the team had come to England with the intent of winning and would not disappoint their fans
Pakistan’s captain Babar Azam, in a YouTube video on Sunday, penned a heartfelt letter for Pakistan cricket fans before the official beginning of their tour to England.
The Men in Green’s skipper stated that the team had come to England with the intent of winning and would not disappoint their fans.
“My dear cricket fans, I hope you are doing fine. Players and fans have a great relationship and they are nothing without each other. This relationship is getting stronger with each passing day. Fans are also special for Pakistan cricket who stand by them during good and bad times. They cheer on our win and give us confidence when we lose. This is their identity. When we talk about Pakistani people present in the United Kingdom we can't express their support in words. After Pakistan, we have the biggest fan base in the UK,” Babar said.
“Whenever we come to England, cheering fans are present to show their support at the airport and from the hotel to the ground. We have just reached England a few hours ago and currently undergoing quarantine. But we have started to receive messages on social media from people residing over here. We are very excited as on our last tour we missed them coming to the grounds. This time they will be on the ground to support us. You should also support us from home by watching us on television and through social media. We will not disappoint you. We have come here with the spirit to win and will come home as winners. Pakistan Zindabad!” he concluded.
