Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
Pakistan’s top-order batsman Babar Azam has grown from strength to strength ever since making his International debut. Taking down many national and International batting records in a short period of time, Babar looks adamant to do more of the same.
Seeing the performances of the batting sensation in the recently concluded ODI series against Sri Lanka, it is needless to say that he comes across as the danger man for the tourists in the forthcoming T20I series. This is also evident from the fact that the Lahore born currently sits at the top of the ICC T20I batting rankings.
Babar becomes a batting giant when it comes to playing in Pakistan and particularly his hometown Lahore. The 24-year old possesses a batting average of 71 while plying his trade in Lahore which further swells to 75.60 including the whole of Pakistan into the equation.
Moreover, the sturdy batting average gets complemented by an impressive strike-rate and he looks hungry to further ameliorate these numbers. It would be a challenge for the Islanders to stop him in Lahore on tracks which are expected to be batting friendly.
