Pakistan's prestigious batsman Babar Azam spoke up about his power hitting skills. Babar, who has been the most trustable batsman for Pakistan in white ball cricket, was targeted for his lack of ability to strike the ball big despite his prolific record.
Babar Azam replied the critics and said, "If I can be the number one without power hitting, then I do not need power hitting. But when I need to, I utilize it well." Babar Azam has a strike rate of 84.66 with an average of 51 in ODIs.
In modern day cricket, there are a lot of expectations from the batsmen to show some skills in the power department as well. Babar Azam might need to step up gears in the ICC World Cup 2019 if required and he is surely prepared for the challenge.
