The photograph of Babar Azam posing beside some of India’s most well-known players, such as Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, and MS Dhoni, is currently going viral on social media, which has cricket fans in Pakistan delighted.

The answer to the question in the book that is based on cricketers’ nick names goes as follows: “Cricket is the most popular sport in India, and its players are considered celebrities.” Do you know the nicknames of the cricket players that you like the most?
The pupils were given the cricketers and instructed to match them with their respective nicknames in the question.
The answer also includes the alias “Bobby,” which is commonly used to refer to Babar.

In addition to Babar, the following names were brought up in the same question: AB de Villiers and Chris Gayle, both of whom are prominent figures in international cricket.

By including Babar in the team, we are only drawing attention to the fact that he is rapidly becoming one of the most popular cricketers.

The Pakistan skipper was recognised as the ICC’s best male cricketer in all three forms by awarding him the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for 2022.
