In regards to his bowling, he finished with 10 wickets at an average of 34.60.

“I idolise Babar Azam as a batter,” he told the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) website.

Azam is currently in Sri Lanka, where he will be captaining Pakistan in their upcoming two-Test series, which begins on July 16 in Galle.
