Mawra Hocane comes in support Pakistan captain Babar Azam
Pakistani actress Mawra Hussain has spoken out in favour of Pakistan cricket captain Babar Azam.
The actress criticises the media for being “inappropriate” in their coverage of the cricketer, urging people to respect his viewpoint.
Mawra’s remarks came in response to a recent press conference in which Babar Azam was referred to as the team’s “former” captain, despite the fact that he is still very much in control, but rested for the three-match series against Afghanistan.
The actress slammed the media for what she saw as an attempt to undermine Azam’s authority and create a negative agenda against him.
“Just like most of the media.. a journalist yet again being inappropriate… Leave the team alone.. they’re more United than you think.. & learn to respect the cricketer the world is bowing down to! MashaAllah,” Mawra said in a tweet.

Yesterday, Islamabad United skipper, Shadab Khan, corrected a journalist for referring to Peshawar Zalmi and Pakistan skipper, Babar Azam, as former captain in the post-match conference on Thursday in PSL 8.
“Babar Azam is the current Pakistan captain – he’s resting (for the Afghanistan series). He is our King and I am his Wazir. Since King is resting, so the Wazir is going for the series in his absence,” Shadab said.
