Pakistan’s Babar Azam smashed a quick hundred against Glamorgan in the ongoing Vitality T20 blast after getting trolled on Twitter by Gloucestershire. He scored 114 off 62 balls to help Somerset win the match by 66 runs.
Earlier, Gloucestershire had taken a jibe at Babar for not scoring enough runs in the tournament despite being number two T20I batsman in ICC ranking. Babar scored just 10 off 17 balls against them on Sunday.
They posted a video in which Azam was visibly struggling to bat against David Payne, and he managed only 6 runs off 10 deliveries against him.
