Babar Azam got dismissed thrice in the same fashion behind the stumps against The Kiwis
 
 
The New Zealand team is currently on a tour of Pakistan and the ODI series is being played there. Two matches of the series have been done and the third and final match is going on. Meanwhile, Pakistan captain Babar Azam once again got out cheaply and returned to the pavilion. Pakistani skipper could score only four runs in this match and for this, he faced 13 balls. 
 
In the match, Pakistan won the toss and decided to bat first, but this decision backfired, as opener Shan Masood was dismissed without opening the account, he also faced only two balls. After this, Babar Azam also kept walking. When Babar Azam got out, the team's score was just 21 runs at that time and only the seventh over was going on. The team suffered two severe setbacks at the beginning itself. Meanwhile, the special thing is that New Zealand seems to have done good homework regarding Babar Azam, because, in the third match in a row, the number one ODI batter has been dismissed in the same fashion.
 
Pakistan captain Babar Azam was trapped by Michael Bracewell with the brilliant stumping of Tom Latham. Babar wanted to go ahead and play the stroke, but the ball hit him and went into the gloves of wicket-keeper Tom Latham and the stumps were scattered upon seeing it. 
 
It is not that this has happened for the first time, Babar Azam has been stumped in the third consecutive match of the series. If we talk about earlier matches, then in the first match of the series, Babar Azam scored 66 runs in 82 balls, in that match he was stumped by Tom Latham off Glenn Phillips.
 
After this, he scored 79 runs in 114 balls in the second match, in which he became the victim of Ish Sodhi and was stumped by Tom Latham. Babar Azam had played some big innings in the earlier matches, but this time the captain got caught early.
 
In this third and final encounter of the 3-match ODI series, Pakistan won the first match by six wickets, while New Zealand won the second match by 79 runs to level the series. Now the third and last match will decide which team will win the series. Meanwhile, after playing the last match, the New Zealand team will come to India and play a series of three ODIs with India. New Zealand has also announced its team for this series, but not many changes have been made to it. Today's match is important for both teams as there is a series at stake. Till writing, Pakistan was 83-2 after 18 20 overs.
