There was no pressure on Babar, chasing the easy target of 130 runs in this match. In front was a young, unknown fast bowler from Afghanistan in the form of Fazlhaq Farooqui. This could have been a good opportunity for the Pakistani captain to return to form. But it was on this occasion that he made the worst performance of the tournament. He returned to the pavilion after getting out on the first ball itself. Babar was dismissed for zero for the fourth time in his T20 International career which included 2 golden ducks.
