Babar Azam, the top-order batsman of Pakistan, has established himself as one of the most liked batsman of the modern day cricket. With his orthodox style of batting, reservations were always there about his game in the shortest format of the game.
Nevertheless, he silenced many critics to become Pakistan’s most desired T20 player. Scoring 1607 T20 runs in 2019, Babar managed an average of 46 while possessing a strike-rate of 140. This allowed him to install himself as an elite batsman of the 20-over cricket.
To reward his blistering consistency and mindboggling game awareness, Babar has been included in Wisden T20 team of the year. In a unit laden with stars, Babar found himself as an opener alongside Australian batsman David Warner.
Other notable batters to make it to this team includes AB de Villiers and Moeen Ali. Rishabh Pant has been included as the wicket-keeper. For the all-rounders’ quota, they picked Glenn Maxwell and Andre Russell. Moreover, the bowling unit of this team consists of Deepak Chahar, Rashid Khan, Jasprit Bumrah and Harry Gurney.
