Pakistan pace bowler Naseem Shah has called captain Babar Azam his favourite batsman in the world.

Naseem made the comments ahead of the New Zealand series, where Azam is expected to play a pivotal role with the bat.

However, the 26-year-old has been ruled out of the three-match T20 series after sustaining a fractured right thumb during a thrown-down session on Sunday morning.

It remains unclear whether Azam will be fit in time for the first Test against New Zealand, which begins in Mount Maunganui on December 26.

Nonetheless, Naseem has been so impressed with Azam’s form over the past few months.

“With my favorite batsman Babar bhai,” the 17-year-old said on Twitter.

Azam has been in sensational form as of late as he made scores of 19, 77 not out and 125 in the ODI series against Zimbabwe, 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.

He continued to shine in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) playoffs as he scored 65 in the Qualifier and 63 not out in the final to lead the Karachi Kings to their first-ever title.

Pakistan will play three T20 Internationals and two Tests in New Zealand, with the series beginning on December 18 and concluding on January 7.
