Shoaib Akhtar backs Haider Ali to become next Babar Azam

Haider Ali, the rising batting sensation of Pakistan, is one of the most attractive players of the ongoing edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). With a fearless approach, the right-hander never shies away from showing his hitting prowess. As a result, he mustered 239 runs in 9 innings, managing an impressive average of 29.87.

Seeing all this impressed the former Pakistan paceman Shoaib Akhtar to the core who wants the young star to become the next Babar Azam of Pakistan or even surpass him. The 44-year old highlighted Haider’s ability to stay calm under tough situations while being aggressive – a trait he links with players destined to become future stars.

Akhtar feels that Haider is an extraordinary talent and can serve Pakistan in future. He sees the ingredients of a star in the 19-year old player and backed him to go big in the forthcoming contests of Peshawar Zalmi. With Pakistan looking for openers for the T20I team, Haider could get a wildcard entry if things fare well for him.
