Babar Azam, who recently stepped down as Pakistan captain across formats, has pledged his support to Palestine amid the ongoing conflict with Israel. The 29-year-old right-handed batter took to X and posted a photo of a little girl holding a Palestine flag, signaling his call to end the violence.

Babar's teammate and keeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan came under fire after expressing solidarity with Palestine as he dedicated his match-winning hundred against Sri Lanka. Rizwan took to X and dedicated his innings to their brothers and sisters in Gaza. The right-hander also went to the extent of offering prayers on the field during the 2023 World Cup.

Interestingly, Babar's tweet comes after returning from India, ensuring he does not create a controversy during the 2023 World Cup. With Rizwan embroiled in the same, the then Pakistan captain would have chosen to remain away from the spotlight.

Meanwhile, Babar took to X and tweeted the below for Palestine:

Babar Azam had an indifferent 2023 World Cup with the bat:

Meanwhile, the Lahore-born batter walked into the 2023 World Cup as the No.1 ranked ODI batter. However, he accumulated only 320 runs in 9 innings alongside 4 half-centuries. Pakistan had failed to qualify for the semi-finals, having won only 4 matches out of 9.

The Men in Green faced an unrealistic equation ahead of their last league match against England at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. With England captain Jos Buttler opting to bat first after winning the toss, Pakistan's chances got significantly diminished. Their campaign ended with a 93-run defeat to the Englishmen.
