From Babar, with love: Fans pity Babar Azam for being the only star in Karachi Kings

As KK suffer its fourth successive defeat, Twitterati - as always - tried to numb the pain with humour

Entertainment Desk February 05, 2022

Another day, another defeat. Peshawar Zalmi beat Karachi Kings by nine runs in the last night's clash at National Stadium Karachi. While there’s a lot that can be blamed for the poor performance of KK, for fans, captain Babar Azam does not stand anywhere on the list.

Suffering its fourth consecutive defeat, KK couldn't bag a win against PZ despite Babar's laud-worthy batting. The skipper's batting was a treat to watch for fans, who took to Twitter and called Babar a lone wolf and wished for him to have a better team to lead.

A cricket enthusiast did the math to show how Babar made more runs than all batsmen combined in yesterdays match. The former made 90 off 63 balls while the rest of the KK batters made 69 off 57 balls. With the first two batsmen losing wickets for just three runs, KK commenced the game rather shakily.

But cricket isn’t a one-man game. Fans or not, the micro-blogging site was filled with advice and pity for the ace cricketer trying his best. As expected, there are also memes to cope with the unexpected performance from the team.

For Babar, with love

The sole warrior

We're not crying, you are!

We’ve also witnessed some extreme predictions. While some fans think KK is on its way out of the league, others are hopeful a miracle awaits the team's fate.
