Pakistan national cricket team captain, Babar Azam’s father, Azam Siddique, made a shocking revelation on Instagram on Saturday that Babar's mother was fighting for her life in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) on October 24 when the High Voltage India v Pakistan match was underway in Dubai.
Siddique took to his Instagram and penned in his post “I do not want to come here and I should not have come, but I have come so that Babar does not weaken. The purpose of sharing this is not to criticize your national heroes for no reason. And yes, I know, if I don’t get paradise, If you get a place, you have to take an exam. Long live Pakistan,” he added.

Pakistan is off to a great start to their 2021 T20 World Cup campaign, winning three games in a row. Captain Babar Azam led the team by scoring two half centuries in the first three games.
Pakistan has almost secured a spot in the semi-finals and many people have joined him to win the award this time around. While, the classy batter looked as cold as a cucumber on the field. Though, he was fighting his emotions on the inside.
Siddique also revealed that Azam played the first three games in a lot of pain. Something really that my nation should know now. Congratulations to all of you on the three victories. There was a great test in our house. On the day of the game against India, Babar's mother was hooked up to the fan. Babar played all three games with great difficulty,’ Siddique wrote in Urdu.
The post went viral shortly after because fans couldn't believe Azam was going through so much pressure all this time. However, that did not affect his performance. The 27-year-old scored half a century of victory in the historic win against arch-rivals India and also crossed the 50-run mark against Afghanistan. With the remainder of Pakistan's matches against Namibia and Scotland, Azam is expected to extend his exciting career.
Meanwhile, Azam will face Namibia on November 2 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Winning, here will officially place Pakistan in the semi-finals. So the Men in “Green” have every justification to take their best step forward.
