Babar Azam has been rewarded for his outstanding run in international cricket with a place in the ICC ODI XI of the year 2019. Babar has found a spot in the elite list two times now, first in 2017 and second in 2019.
Babar’s 2019 was adorned with splendid performances all throughout the World Cup where he ended up as his side’s highest run-scorer. He conjured the knock of his career in the must-win clash against New Zealand with a sensational hundred.
“I am thankful to the ICC and its jury for recognizing my achievements with the bat in 2019 and considering me worthy of a place in the side that includes some of my favorite cricketers who entertained the fans throughout the year with their outstanding performances”- Babar.
“However, I will reserve my biggest gratitude to my team-mates and fans as without their support this would not have been possible. We played and performed as one team, with the fans always behind us despite our up and down performances”- he added.
