He made a superb 104 in Brisbane and followed that up with a brilliant 97 in the second Test in Adelaide.

“Babar Azam is a world-class batsman, it’s difficult to bowl to him in the nets,” Amad was quoted as saying by PakPassion. “Before, we used to think about how to bowl to world-class batsmen but now we have one in our team so it’s a different experience.”

Amad’s comments come after he was included in Pakistan’s team for the upcoming three-match Twenty20 series against Bangladesh, which will be held in Lahore from January 24 to 27.

Amad has featured in 36 Twenty20 matches and scored 167 runs at an average of 16.70 and a strike-rate of 138.01. He has also taken 49 wickets at an average of 18.93.
