Pakistan captain Babar Azam said he wants to learn how to be a top-class power-hitter like New Zealand opener Martin Guptill.
Azam said Guptill’s ability to hit the ball a long way is “outstanding”, and added that he always wants to keep developing his game to get better.
Both players are representing the Karachi Kings in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), but Guptill has gotten off to a slow start as he has scored 21 runs in three games at an average of seven.
“His power-hitting skills are outstanding. I will try to learn from his experience because the learning process never stops,” Azam told Cricket Pakistan.
Azam has accumulated 424 runs in eight PSL matches, which includes five half-centuries, at an average of 84.80 and a strike-rate of 139.47.
