There were a lot of expectations associated with Babar Azam who’s been going through a wonderful patch with the bat recently.
Much to the disappointment of the fans back home, the darling batsman couldn’t add any value to the scorecard of Pakistan when he came out to bat against Australia earlier in the day.
Babar once again tried to drive a wide delivery off Hazlewood and edged it straight into the hands of Joe Burns in the slips.
Babar has been scoring runs heavily in white-ball cricket and the fans were expecting the top order player to step up in the longer format as well. Azam’s form is going to be very crucial for Pakistan going into the Test series as Pakistan rely heavily on him.
