Babar Azam, along with Mohammad Rizwan, led the Pakistan team to a historic 10-wicket win against India in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup.
The win was historic because until now Pakistan had not won any match against India at any World Cup. Following this memorable victory, Azam's father became visibly emotional.
Azam Siddique broke into tears. The entire scene was captured on the camera where he was being congratulated by fans and he couldn't control his tears.
This is Babar Azam’s father. So happy for him. I first met him in 2012 at Adnan Akmal’s walima. Babar at that time was 3 years away from Pakistan debut. I clearly remember what his father told me “bas debut ho jane do. Agay sara maidaan babar ka hai” pic.twitter.com/ZlsvODQkSg— Mazher Arshad (@MazherArshad) October 24, 2021

This man has done so much for Babar. Supported Babar through all thick and thin.— Israr Ahmed Hashmi (@IamIsrarHashmi) October 24, 2021
There was a time when the Akmal family used to lend Babar their used kits but ALLAH had other plans.
