During my career, I met many great players. Bowlers like Wasim , Waqar, Shoaib, Saqlain and Mushtaq and Batsmen like Miandad , Inzi, Yousuf, Saeed and Younus but @babarazam258 is the most incredible of them all.

“During my career, I met many great players. Bowlers like Wasim, Waqar, Shoaib, Saqlain and Mushtaq and batsmen like Miandad, Inzi, Yousuf, Saeed and Younis but Babar Azam is the most incredible of them all,” Latif said on Twitter.
Most recently, Azam made scores of 103, 31 and 94 in the three-match ODI series against South Africa, which gave him a total of 228 runs at an average of 76.
Azam will now be looking to maintain his red-hot form in the four-match T20 series, which begins on Saturday.
