It is hard to overemphasize the consequentiality of the top-order batsman Babar Azam for Pakistan. Ever since making his debut in the International cricket, the prolific cricketer grew from strength to strength to become an ace of the batting department. The batsman is often compared with ‘Fab Four’ batters which includes Virat Kohli, Steve Smith, Kane Williamson and Joe Root.
Even in the recently concluded edition of the World Cup event, the Lahore born added another feather in his cap by becoming Pakistan’s highest run-getter in a single World Cup edition. All this has excited the captain Sarfaraz Ahmed who wants his batting sensation to steal the thunder of the Sri Lanka series and continue doing it in all the forthcoming assignments.
Recently, the Karachi born revealed that Babar always compares his performances with ‘Fab Four’. Sarfaraz believes that considering the progress of Babar, it can be believed that he is on his way to join this elite batting panel. It would be interesting to see how Babar carries himself with added pressure of being a part of Pakistan’s leadership framework.
