Former England captain Nasser Hussain has revealed that batsman Babar Azam will be Pakistan’s “key man” during the World Cup.
Azam has been in superb form as of late as he scored a sensational 112 in Pakistan’s World Cup warm-up against Afghanistan, which the men in green surprisingly lost by three wickets.
Prior to that, he was the second-highest run-scorer in the ODI series against England with 277 runs in five matches, which included a century and two fifties, at an average of 55.40.
Nasser Hussain "With the likes of Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq and Babar Azam, Pakistan's batting looks strong. I'm going for Babar as their key man – he is up there with some of the best white-ball batsmen in the world at the moment" #CWC19

Pakistan will kick off their World Cup campaign against the West Indies in Nottingham on Friday.
