Cricketer turned commentator Aakash Chopra has said that Karachi Kings skipper Babar Azam's shadow arrived in Karachi after he failed to perform against the Mohammad Rizwan-led Multan Sultans in the opening match of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

Babar wasn't up to his usual best in the PSL opener against defending champion Sultans as he scored only 23 runs in 29 balls before getting caught out.

Aakash Chopra took to Twitter to pitch in his thought on Babar's performance in the PSL opener.

"Babar's shadow arrived in Karachi today, never got going. No rhythm," Aakash tweeted.

"Sharjeel's cameo allowed him to settle in…but still it wasn’t enough in the end," he added.

The Babar Azam-led Karachi Kings will next take on Quetta Gladiators on Saturday at the National Cricket Stadium Karachi.
