SHARJAH: Hong Kong captain Nizakat Khan has taken “tips” from his Pakistani counterpart, Babar Azam – whose footsteps he wants to follow.

A video shared on the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Twitter handle showed the two skippers meeting and discussing things before their make-or-break match.

Koi tip hame bhi do (give us some tips too),’ Khan asked Babar, to which the Pakistani skipper replied: ‘kya tips chahiye (what tips do you want from me)?”

During their conversation, Khan – who has his roots in Pakistan – praised Babar for his percussion and also tried the Pakistani captain’s bat.

Babar will lead Pakistan against Hong Kong in the final group match of ACC T20 Asia Cup 2022 today in Sharjah, the first match between the two teams in the shortest format.

Pakistan is confident of securing a place in the Super 4 stage of the tournament by beating Hong Kong, which was defeated by table-toppers India on Wednesday in Dubai.

Pakistan was also beaten by India on a nail-biter on Sunday.
