Pakistan limited overs captain Babar Azam has revealed that he has to talk a lot before going out to bat since it calms him down.
Azam made the revelation on the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) podcast.
The 25-year-old added that he also works hard on the mental aspect of his game since he believes “mental strength is a key to success”.
“I chat with fellow players in the dressing room before going in to bat as this helps me to remain calm. I cannot stay quiet for long in the dressing room especially before my turn to bat,” he said.
“A great player is one who can stay focus in pressure situations. I work hard on the mental aspect of my game as I feel mental strength is a key to success.”
