Babar Azam got a little angry over Asif Ali during Australia vs Pakistan 2nd T20I match at Manuka Oval in Canberra. The new Pakistan's skipper lost his mind over Ali for giving away his wicket during a crucial moment in the match. Pakistan were reeling at 70-3 at 11.1 overs and were in need of a partnership to better their digits on the scoreboard. Azam was playing well at one end and needed someone to hold wicket on the other side. He had already lost Fakhar Zaman (2), Haris Sohail (6) and Mohammad Rizwan (14) cheaply and wanted Ali to build a partnership with him. However, Ali too gave up his wicket with a flight shot at mind-on, which was easily caught by Ashton Agar. AUS Beat PAK By 7 Wickets | Australia Vs Pakistan, Highlights And Cricket Score 2nd T20I Match.
