Taking cognisance of the post, some fans opted to hit out at Babar for his forgetful performances with the bat at the Asia Cup. Netizens also opined that Babar is yet to become a modern-day great in international cricket. "One is great one is overrated," a fan wrote. "Yeah Babar is overrated... Still couldn't win one man if the series award.. And couldn't perform in sena countries as consistent like Kohli," another user added.
