Australia legend Matthew Hayden said Pakistan captain Babar Azam “has great control and a wonderful temperament”.

His comments come after he worked closely with Azam as Pakistan’s batting consultant during the T20 World Cup.

Azam led by example with the bat in the tournament as he broke the record for the most runs scored by a batsman in their maiden T20 World Cup appearance.

He scored 303 runs in six games, which included four fifties, at an average of 60.60 and a strike-rate of 126.25.

“Babar has great control and a wonderful temperament,” Hayden was quoted as saying by the Pakistan Cricket Board’s website

Pakistan are currently touring Bangladesh and hold a 2-0 lead in the T20 series. 

Azam made scores of 7 and 1 in the first two matches.

Pakistan will play one more T20 International on Monday before the two-Test series begins on November 26.
