Pakistan’s batting maestro, Babar Azam proved why he is so hyped as he exhibited his class throughout the World Cup. Babar was one of the standout batsmen in this World Cup edition and playing in his first ever world event, displayed no signs of nerves.
Babar’s 474 runs in eight innings broke batting legend Javed Miandad's record for the most runs for Pakistan in a World Cup and saw him surge to number three in the ODI rankings. Holding a press-conference with Imam-ul-Haq, the 24-year-old said that it proved to be a great learning experience for him.
“It was my first playing in such pressure I think I did pretty well and delivered on the right time for my team,” Babar said. Moreover, he acknowledged that their chastening seven-wicket defeat by the West Indies in the first match of the World Cup had haunted them till the very end.
