Pakistani cricketer Babar Azam just gave a shut-up call to one of the country’s well-known sports anchor and journalist, Zainab Abbas.
Apparently, both personalities found themselves in a Twitter war after an exchange of words via tweets.
The argument started after Zainab Abbas called Babar Azam, Mickey Arthur’s son.
She wrote, “Well played @babarazam258 – loved how the boys went congratulating Mickey Arthur celebrating his “son’s” century”

However, Babar did not find anything amusing in her congratulatory tweet and was quick to hit back with an angry response.
He wrote, “Think before u say something and don’t try to cross ur limits!!!”

It is no secret that Babar is one of Coach Mickey’s favourite players. His brilliant performance has always kept the hard-working lad in one of the good books.
Zainab, being a journalist and quite involved in cricket, probably already knew, which is why she referred to him as the coach’s son as an inside joke. However, the cricketer did not find it amusing and rather found it to be demeaning.
The exchange of tweets has started a social media frenzy. Memes and jokes are being shared left, right and centre!

Babr is right in acting hard on this… What if some media blokes take this to another level by creating stories of nepotism between Mickey and Babar, this is not a good way to congratulate anyone by changing his father name, Zainab Abbas should apologize over this… https://t.co/uwFdfTYVjy
