Pakistani captain Babar Azam makes beautiful cover drives. Even if the top player did not do well throughout the Asia Cup 2022, when he does play, he electrifies the cricket arena. According to ESPN Cricinfo, “cover drive in cricket is the act of stroking the ball through the covers with well-timed wristwork and conventional movement of the front foot toward the pitch of a delivery aimed at or outside the off stump.” Students are learning about the skipper’s cover drive in the federal board’s Physics textbook, which aids with their science education. The internet has been buzzing with a tweet. The tweet’s subject line read, “Babar Azam’s cover drive related question in 9th-grade physics curriculum (federal board) (via Reddit)”.

Sri Lanka made it difficult for Pakistan to score throughout their 172-run chase and turned the screws in the last four overs. Wanindu Hasaranga, who had earlier scored a 21-ball 36 to bring the Sri Lankan innings back on track with Bhanuka Rajapaksa, took three wickets in the 17th over alone to all but finish off the Pakistani challenge. Earlier, Rajapaksa’s unbeaten 45-ball 71, completely turned the tables on Pakistan. Sri Lanka ended up scoring 170/6 despite being 67/5 after the first 10 overs.
