Babar Azam is not just another ordinary individual holding the bat but he is a charismatic batting marvel and beloved of the modern-era cricket.
Famous for extraordinary flair in his extravagantly attractive shots, Babar Azam is eyed as the next big thing in the gentlemen’s game.
The flamboyant stroke-maker belonging from Pakistan Cricket Team, who is only 24, is among top six in all forms of the game.
Ricky Ponting couldn’t restrict himself from uttering the praises of Azam.
Hashim Amla was in awe of his spectacular focus and dedication.
Michael Clarke emphasized the significance of Babar’s role in Pakistan Cricket Team.
Kumar Sangakkara was amazed at his emergence in the category of elites.
How could have another legendary name from the land of batting marvels stopped himself from admiring the backborn of Pakistan Cricket Team’s batting line-up.
Former Indian captain and legendary batsman Mohammad Azharuddin has praised Babar Azam for his splendid capabilities as a batsman.
One of the greatest batsmen of Indian history, Azharuddin assumes that Babar has the potential of joining the ultimate league of top-notch batsmen.
“Babar is still young and has a lot of cricket ahead of him. He has the ability to become a top batsman and register his name among the great Pakistani batsmen of the past,” (quote from cricketpakistan.pk) former Indian captain expressed his opinion.
According to Azharuddin, the amusement obtained from the sparkling batting display of Babar Azam should not be spoiled for the sake of ‘Babar Azam vs Virat Kohli’ type comparisons.
“I don’t believe in comparisons. If a batsman is good, then his batting should be enjoyed and he should be praised rather than comparing him with someone else,” (quote from Dawn.com) said Mohammad Azharuddin.
Tally of 16 hundreds and scintillating batting average in all three formats, Babar Azam’s batting stats are tremendously impressive for an individual belonging from a country holding weak batting standards in general.
However, the cricket pundits assume that this is only a glimpse of what Babar could actually achieve in the coming times.
