BIRMINGHAM – After Babar Azam scored the century for Pakistan in a tough run chase to give Pakistan a much needed win over New Zealand, leading sports journalist Yahya Hussaini has revealed the ulterior motive behind the right-handed batsman’s Man of the Match winning innings.

Talking to The Dependent Hussaini revealed that Azam scored the century for selfish reasons and was playing entirely for himself.

“Selfish Babar Azam only scored the century for himself, because he wanted to win the match for Pakistan and become the Man of the Match,” Hussaini said.

“He knew that if he did not score the century there is little chance that anyone else would, which would have resulted in Pakistan losing to New Zealand, which would have meant that someone from New Zealand would have been given the Man of the Match award,” he added.

Investigative journalist Hussaini, who is known to reveal the darkest secrets of the Pakistani dressing room and is more aware of the national team’s players subconscious than the players themselves, revealed that Babar exploited a tough scenario for Pakistan for his own interests.

“He knew Pakistan needed him to perform and he did. I have never seen a more selfish batsman,” he said.
