Babar Azam is already getting the true hype just at the early phase of his career. The reason is Babar’s batting is the blend of Pakistan modern era’s chaos solution and a touch of conventional cricket.

He has done tremendously well in the time he spent thus far in County cricket. In the Vitality T20 blast, Babar is averaging 62.00 with the phenomenal tally of 434 runs and the splendid strike rate of 152.81. He’s also leading the elite list of the highest run scorers in the T20 competition.

However, when Babar entered the arena of First Class in England, which is the County Championship, he didn’t have a greatly remarkable beginning.

In the game of Somerset against Warwickshire, Babar got a stint of batting in the critical circumstances when his team was 44/2 in the 1st innings. He couldn’t assist his team in the recovery phase and was dismissed on the very first ball by Hannon-Delby.

While in the 4th innings, Babar Azam played a reasonable knock of 40 runs but couldn’t provide resistance till the end in the chase of 258 runs.

Babar Azam has already expressed his desire of doing fine in the Test cricket format.
“I have done okay in the white-ball game recently, but I really want to prove myself in Test cricket, so I will be doing my best to achieve my goals in this format.” said the top-order Pakistani batsman.
