Pakistan’s top-order batsman, Babar Azam highlights the pressure of staying the best in the world in an interview with Wasim Akram. Babar Azam, who is currently the number 1 T20I batsman and ranked at number 3 in ODIs, said that there is always a pressure to stay at the top.
“It requires art to reach at the number 1 position, but to stay consistent at there, it requires real hard work and dedication”, Azam said. The young batsman has become a consistent performer for Pakistan in the recent past. Pakistan relies heavily on him at the top-order.
Babar had a phenomenal season with Somerset off-late where he justified the fact that why he is the best T20I batsman in the world. He also hopes to continue a good run in the home series against Sri Lanka. With just a few steps away from becoming the number 1 ODI batsman and overthrowing Virat Kohli, Azam has set high standards for his batting in the upcoming series.
