Pakistani captain Babar Azam has won hearts after responding to a letter written by an 8-year-old boy addressing Pakistan’s cricket team after the Green Shirts were defeated by Australia in the semi-finals of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021.
According to journalist Alina Shigri on Twitter, Haroon Suria, a young fan, said in his letter that he was “very proud” of the team and that he loves Babar. Azam’s jersey number — 56 — was also mentioned at the top of the page, followed by a heart.

“Good job everyone, nice batting, and bowling,” he wrote.
Suri also asked Babar to sign and send the autographs of the entire team in an endearing yet humble manner. The full text of the letter was as follows:
“Hello, Pakistani team. I am very proud of you, Babar Azam, and I adore you. Everyone did an excellent job… Excellent batting and bowling. Yesterday, during the game, I felt proud that Pakistan would win. Then, in the middle, I was nervous, and finally, I was terrified. Inshallah, we will win the captaincy in the future, and I will make sure to invite everyone on your team to join me. We will compete in the finals.” “Dear Mr. Babar, Please write all of your team members’ signatures on paper and send them to my house,” he added.
The youngster also expressed a desire to be the team’s captain in the future. “InshaAllah, in the future, I will be captain, and I will make certain that all of your team members are invited to join my team.”
“We’ll make it to the finals and win,” he wrote.
The touching letter made Twitterati and the captain swoon over the little boy.
The skipper had a heartfelt response for the young fan and thanked him for his “kind letter.”
“I ABSOLUTELY believe in you,” the captain responded, “and you can achieve anything with your focus, belief, and hard work.”
Babar Azam also assured the little fan that he would send in all of the signatures, but sweetly added, “I can’t wait to get YOUR autograph, future Captain.”
