Sunil Gavaskar gifted Pakistan Captain Babar Azam an autographed cap as a birthday gift.

Babar, currently one of the finest batters in world cricket, turned 28 on Sunday, October 16.

In a video tweeted by the Pakistan Cricket Board, Gavaskar is seen telling Babar: 'Shot selection acchi ho toh koi problem nahi (If the shot selection is good then there is no problem). Situation ke hisaab se shot selection karein, koi problem nahi (shot selection should according to the situation).

Retired cricketers Saqlain Mushtaq and Mohammed Yousuf, who are part of the Pakistan coaching staff, were also seen chatting with Gavaskar, who played his final Test against Pakistan in Bangalore in 1987, scoring 96 in his final Test inning.
