Iceland Cricket Playfully Pokes Fun at Babar Azam’s Batting Average on Twitter: Known for its witty social media presence on #CricketTwitter, the Iceland Cricket Twitter account, despite Iceland not having an international cricket team, regularly shares humorous tweets related to cricket.

In a recent amusing incident, the Iceland Cricket Twitter admin took a lighthearted dig at the former Pakistan captain and star batsman, Babar Azam.

The banter began when the World of Statistics Twitter page, @stats_feed, asked its followers about aspects that haven’t returned to normal post-COVID. Seizing the opportunity, the Iceland Cricket Twitter account responded with a touch of humor.

The World of Statistics Twitter page posed the question, “What is something that still hasn’t gone back to normal after the pandemic?”

In a clever comeback, the Iceland Cricket Twitter admin quipped, “The batting average of Babar Azam.”

This witty tweet quickly gained traction, accumulating over 15,000 likes and 2,000 retweets. While Pakistani fans attempted to respond in defense of Babar Azam, Indian cricket enthusiasts joined in the banter, playfully teasing the star batsman.

Taking note of the reactions from both Indian and Pakistani fans, the Iceland Cricket Twitter admin humorously remarked, “The British-Icelandic admin had no clue what fury he was about to unleash.”

Meanwhile, following Pakistan’s disappointing performances in the Asia Cup and the 2023 World Cup, Babar Azam saw a change in leadership. He was replaced by Shaheen Afridi as the T20I captain and by Shan Masood as the Test skipper. Despite Babar Azam publicly resigning from the captaincy across all formats, it was revealed that the PCB initially wanted him to lead in the Test series in Australia. However, Babar expressed his decision to step down from the captaincy in a statement.

Babar Azam stated, “Today, I am stepping down as the captain of Pakistan in all formats. It’s a difficult decision, but I feel it is the right time for this call. I will continue to represent Pakistan as a player in all three formats. I am here to support the new captain and the team with my experience and dedication. I want to express my sincere thanks to the PCB for entrusting me with this significant responsibility.
