Former Australia opener Matthew Hayden said Pakistan captain Babar Azam has all the talent in the world. 

Hayden recently worked with Azam and the rest of the Pakistan team as their batting consultant during the T20 World Cup.

In the tournament, the 27-year-old was in fine form as he broke the record for the most runs scored by a batsman in their maiden T20 World Cup appearance.

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

“Babar Azam is highly talented,” 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 scored 7 and 1 in the first two games.

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