Pakistan’s top-order batsman Babar Azam has clearly refused to look back ever since making his debut in the International cricket. While the proficient batsman currently averages more than 50 in the white-ball cricket, his Test credentials are also improving day by day.
After recording a strong display in the World Cup 2019 tournament, the 24-year old is getting ready for the Sri Lanka series where the green team will lock horns against Islanders for a three-game ODI series followed by 3 T20Is. Babar, factually, serves as a danger man for Sri Lanka as he possesses a sparkling record against them.
In the 8 ODI innings against the blue team, the Lahore born has amassed 350 runs while maintaining a staggering batting average of 58.33. Moreover, Babar has crossed the three-figure mark twice against Sri Lanka. With all the 3 ODIs scheduled to take place at National Stadium of Karachi, batting paradises are expected to ring alarm bells for the hosts as stopping Pakistan’s reliable batsman would be their foremost challenge. It remains to be seen how Babar fares in his forthcoming assignment.
