Multan Sultans head coach Andy Flower said Pakistan captain Babar Azam is performing brilliantly with the bat.
This comes after Azam scored 177 runs in the three-match ODI series against England, which included a career-best 158, at an average of 59.
He followed that up with 118 runs in the three-match T20 series, which include a top score of 85, at an average of 39.33 and a strike-rate of 151.28.
In the recently-concluded four-match T20 series against the West Indies, Azam only batted once as three of the games were washed out due to rain. In the one match he batted, he scored 51 runs.
“The fact that he’s played so well, with the added responsibility of captaincy, reflect really well on him as a person,” Flower was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
“This shows that he can control his thoughts and his emotions and still perform brilliantly with a bat and lead from the front.”
