Challenged to reach 100 centuries

why does Pakistani captain Babar say that he is a captain of Pakistan

But Rizwan loudly appealed for the catch. But umpire Anil Chaudhary rejected Rizwan’s appeal. Rizwan immediately signaled for review and Anil Chaudhary ignored captain Babar Azam’s decision and immediately signaled the third umpire for review. But then Babar Azam’s face was worth seeing. Babar Azam looked at Anil Chaudhary and said not once but twice… ‘Sir, I am Captain… I am Captain!’
warning to umpire
As a rule, both teams are allowed to take 2-2 DRS in each innings in T20Is. If the fielding team wishes to take DRS, the final decision to take DRS rests with the captain. And he warned the umpire. But in the match against Sri Lanka, umpire Anil Chaudhary, without waiting for Babar’s decision, considered Rizwan’s warning as final and handed over the next decision to the third umpire. Knowing this brought a smile on Rizwan’s face too, but Babar’s face was worth seeing. The video of this incident has gone infectious agent on social media.
