Usman Khawaja's daughter hugs Babar Azam

Former Pakistan captain Babar Azam and Australia's opener Usman Khawaja's daughter Aisha shared a charming moment ahead of the Australia vs. Pakistan second Test game. It was seen that Khawaja's daughter embraced Babar Azam and gave him a tight hug.

Notably, the video of this wonderful gesture between Aisha and Babar Azam has been widely shared on social media. In addition, the little girl, Aisha, gave Babar Azam a hug when Usman Khawaja was present and was talking to him.

However, the top-order batter wore the names of his two kids, Aisha and Ayla, on his shoes during the  Boxing Day Test on December 26 at MCG. Meanwhile, Australia's opening batter, Usman Khawaja, and the Apex Cricket Council have been at battle since the first Test.

Following the Apex Cricket Council's refusal of his request to wear shoes bearing the slogan "All Lives Are Equal" to support Palestine in the ongoing war against Hamas, Khawaja protested by donning a black armband in the first Test game at Perth, which sparked the massive controversy.

I just want that for the rest of the world and that’s the reason I’m saying this: Usman Khawaja

“I don’t get anything out of this. I just feel like it’s my responsibility to speak up on this. We live in such a beautiful country. I’m blessed to be able to go to Australia, I can walk outside. I don’t have to worry about a thing. My kids can do the same. I just want that for the rest of the world and that is literally the reason I’m saying this,”  Usman Khawaja said being quoted by NDTV Sports.
