Former Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria has called captain and star batsman Babar Azam “Mr Consistent”.
Kaneria’s comments come after Azam’s outstanding performance in the limited overs series against Zimbabwe.
Azam made scores of 19, 77 not out and 125 in the ODI series, and followed it up by making 82 and 51 in the first two T20 Internationals. He didn’t bat in the third match of the series.
Pakistan won the ODI series 2-1 and whitewashed Zimbabwe 3-0 in the T20 series.
However, Kaneria said Pakistan need to think about who will step up if Azam goes through a rough patch or suffers an injury as they can’t constantly keep relying on him to get the job done.
