Accolades poured in for Babar Azam and his men as they inflicted a crushing defeat over arch-rivals India in their campaign opener of the T20 World Cup. It was a historic triumph, given the monkey Pakistan carried on their back having never won against their neighbours in the World Cup. While the dignitaries back home like Prime Minister Imran Khan and PCB chairperson Rameez Raja were effusive in their praise, plaudits were also showered by former cricketers Graeme Smith and Shane Warne among others.
