All 16 ICC Captains’ Day skippers were available for media interviews yesterday, including Pakistan captain Babar Azam and New Zealand captain Kane Williamson.
Aisa Cup 2022 champions Sri Lanka will take on Namibia in the first qualifying round match at GMHBA Stadium on October 16, setting the stage for T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia.
Aaron Finch presented a cake to Babar Azam as a birthday present for Australia captain. This year marks his 28th birthday.
On its official Twitter account, the International Cricket Council (ICC) wished him a happy birthday and posted images of the event. “That cake looks good,” ICC wrote.
Captain’s all-format campaign has been great since T20 World 2021. Most recently, he won the tri-series final in New Zealand, leading the side to victory in 25 T20I matches, 16 of which were wins.
A mention of the Men in Green’s success in last year’s T20 World Cup would not be complete without mentioning the fact that the team reached the semi-finals stage of this year’s tournament and qualified for the final of the Asia Cup in 2022.
