Opinion: Babar Azam’s red-ball form becomes a concern

The white-ball sensation and Pakistan’s current best batsman, Babar Azam has been struggling with the red-ball form. His First-Class and Test matches records are not really close to his greatness in the limited-overs. The 24-year old averages 36.59 in the First-Class, but the real concern for the right-handed batsman is his conversion rate.

Babar has scored 22 half-centuries in the First-Class arena and only 3 centuries which implies that he scored a century after 30 First-Class innings. Babar did not have a good start to Test arena either, but he had a good outing against South Africa in 2018 Test series. His Test match average is 35.28 and again the problem here is the conversion rate.

He has scored 1 century and 11 half-centuries in the International red-ball format. He desperately needs to work on prolonging his innings in the biggest format of the game. The talented young batsman has done a great job for Pakistan in the last couple of years and the country looks up to him for the future responsibilities.
