Babar Azam, the top-order batsman of Pakistan, has established himself as one of the most liked batters of the modern day cricket. Despite playing less than 150 International games, Babar has mustered over 6000 runs whilst managing to score 15 centuries. With his sparkling batting performances, the run machine has witnessed a continuous swell in his fame.
It all started in 2015 for him when he scored an eye-catching half-century against Zimbabwe in Lahore. Recently, the top-ranked T20I batsman opened up about his cricketing journey as he shared the event of being a ball-picker in Lahore during the 2nd Test match between Pakistan and South Africa 13 years ago.
The 25-year old added that he walked almost 3 miles to reach the stadium and it was the love for players like Younis Khan, Mohammad Yousuf and Misbah-ul-Haq which kept him going. He further said that getting pats on back and smiles from the legends served as his reward in that game. Moreover, he extended his gratitude to all those who stood with him through thick and thin to establish him as the face of Pakistan.
