Ever since his debut, rising batting sensation Babar Azam has been touted as the next batting hero of Pakistan. The proficient player registered many stunning outings and an elite Test series in Australia saw him fetching massive admiration. In the red-ball series played last year, Babar showed great character whilst mustering 210 runs at 52.50, becoming Pakistan’s highest run-getter.
Recently, the cricketing world saw the former Australian great Ricky Ponting hailing the batting prowess of the 25-year old batsman by reliving his batting shows down under. The cricketer turned commentator is mightily pleased with Babar’s regal rise in the cricketing world as he lauded Babar’s balance, poise at the crease and his ability to counter tough situations.
Interacting with fans on his official Twitter handle, the 45-year old said that Babar in Australia was really impressive. Furthermore, he didn’t shy away from predicting that Pakistan’s batting star could go on to become one of the finest batters of the cricketing world. Hearing all this from an icon like Ponting comes across as a massive complement for Babar Azam.
