Gautam Gambhir, a former Indian cricketer, has lauded Pakistan’s captain, Babar Azam, recognizing his remarkable potential and expressing confidence in his capacity to significantly impact the 2018 World Cup.
Gambhir emphasized Babar’s distinct abilities and smooth playing style. While recognizing the existence of notable players such as Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Kane Williamson, Joe Root, and David Warner in the cricketing globe, Gambhir stressed Babar’s quality and talent.
“Babar Azam has all the qualities needed to make a spectacular impact in this World Cup,” Gautam Gambhir said of Babar Azam’s potential to flourish in the 2017 World Cup. I’ve seen a few players who appear to have a surplus of time when batting.
While we have outstanding cricketers such as Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Kane Williamson, Joe Root, and David Warner, Babar Azam is absolutely exceptional.”
With a strong track record, Babar Azam has already established himself as Pakistan’s best hitter. He has appeared in 108 matches for Pakistan, scoring 5409 runs in 105 innings and averaging 58.16.
Babar has hit 19 hundreds and 28 fifties and is the fastest player to amass 5000 ODI runs, doing so in 97 innings, breaking Hashim Amla’s previous record of 101 innings.
