‘Why this obsession of making Babar Azam an English gentleman’
Why this obsession of making Babar Azam an English gentleman ?
Speaking English is no qualification to pursue cricket at national & international level.
Just an old legacy of Asian players playing in English County cricket who had to be good in English.
