Middle-order batsman Babar Azam on Sunday scored his maiden Test century. The right-handed batsman coming in at number six scored unbeaten 127 to help his side cross the 400-run mark. Babar after the knock was congratulated by many and Pakistan sports anchor Zainab Abbas also took to Twitter to applaud his knock. However, Zainab’s tweet irked the Pakistan batsman and he now has suggested the anchor to ‘stay in her limits’. PAK vs NZ 2nd Test 2018 Live Cricket Score.

“Well played @babarazam258 - loved how the boys went congratulating Mickey Arthur celebrating his “son’s” century,” wrote Zainab on her Twitter. In what looks like a case of misinterpretation, Babar replied, “Think before u say something and don’t try to cross ur limits!!!”

Pakistan’s sports journalist Faizan Lakhani felt that the tweet was probably misinterpreted and wrote, "May be Zainab just meant that Micky loves him the way he would love his son. Probably, the tweet is misinterpreted,” on his Twitter.

Babar last month missed his maiden ton by just one run while playing against Australia in Abu Dhabi when he was dismissed for 99. Meanwhile, it took Babar, who made his Test debut in 2016 against Windies, 32 innings to notch his first hundred. The right-hander, however, has eight centuries against his name from 54 matches in ODIs. Live Cricket Streaming of Pakistan vs New Zealand 2018 on SonyLIV: Check Live Cricket Score, Watch Free Telecast of PAK vs NZ 2nd Test Match on TV & Online.
