England pace bowler James Anderson believes Pakistan captain Babar Azam is the best T20 player in the world right now.
This comes after Azam smashed a magnificent 85, which came off 49 balls and included eight boundaries and three sixes, in the first T20 International against England.
As for the second T20 International, which Pakistan lost by 45 runs, he made 22 runs.
Prior to that, he accumulated 177 runs in the three-match ODI series, which included a career-best 158, at an average of 59.
