Former Pakistan head coach and chief selector Misbah-ul-Haq said the shots Babar Azam plays is what makes him a world-class batsman.
Azam has established himself as one of the top cricketers in the world, and further cemented that reputation in the recent three-Test series against Australia.
The 27-year-old accumulated 390 runs, which included a career-best knock of 196, at an average of 78.
“The way he [Babar] plays his shots, he is a world class batsman,” Misbah told Cricwick.
In the three-match ODI series, he made 276 runs, which included two centuries and a fifty, at an average of 138.
Azam will be aiming to maintain his red-hot momentum in the one-off T20 International on Tuesday.
