When Babar was asked about the details of the words exchanged, he said that he asked India’s world cup-winning captain regarding tips for becoming a better captain.
According to details, the former wicketkeeper-batsman lauded the Pakistani skipper’s batting abilities along with his leadership qualities.
Dhoni, while speaking to the Pakistani captain, said he doesn’t need to give him any batting advice as he is already a perfect batsman and captain.
On the other hand, a heartwarming conversation also took place between Pakistan’s vice-captain Mohammad Rizwan and the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli. The star Indian batsman told Rizwan that his side was completely outplayed by them. The two later hugged each other.
It merits a mention that Dhoni has led the side to glorious victories in the first ICC T20 World Cup in 2007 and the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2012.
Meanwhile, Pakistan’s batting consultant Matthew Hayden has said that it was inspiring for him to see the display of sporting brotherhood between the archrivals.
