Shoaib Akhtar had criticized Babar Azam’s performance of run-a-ball half century. But when Pakistani skipper hit a smashing century, the Rawalpindi Express praised him in a tweet. He tweeted, “Brilliant Babar with Supreme authority wins another series.”

But it wasn’t sufficient to calm down social media users – they weren’t ready to let Akhtar go off the hook so easily. Twitter users wasted no time in reminding Akhtar how he had criticized Azam of his slow play against South Africa.

Akhtar soon realized his mistake and tweeted in response “Chalo yar koi nahi, ghalti bhi banday se he hotay hai.” (It’s okay, humans make mistakes.)
