Babar Azam, Pakistan cricket team captain, expressed his support for injured New Zealand captain Kane Williamson on Twitter.
The New Zealand captain injured his right knee and has a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). He is unlikely to participate in the 50-overs World Cup in India later this year.
A top-order batsman of Gujarat Titans in the Indian Premier League suffered an injury while fielding last Friday. He returned to New Zealand and scans on Tuesday confirmed that he needs surgery, making it unlikely for him to be available for selection in the tournament in October and November.
Babar Azam tweeted, “Bounce back stronger. Get well soon Kane Williamson” to show his support.
Babar’s gesture of goodwill was appreciated by cricket fans globally. He received praise for demonstrating sportsmanship and solidarity with an injured player.
The Pakistan captain is recognized for his cricketing abilities and gracious behavior on and off the field. Babar’s tweet in support of Williamson exemplifies the sportsmanship and camaraderie he embodies.
Babar tweeted in support of Virat Kohli during the ODI series between England and India last year. Kohli was going through a tough time in his batting, and Babar’s tweet provided him with encouragement.
Babar Azam tweeted, “This too shall pass. Stay strong” in support of Virat Kohli during a tough patch in his batting. Kohli expressed gratitude towards Babar’s support and acknowledged the sportsmanship spirit in his response.
