Former Pakistan speedster Sarfraz Nawaz said the whole world follows the cover drives of Babar Azam.
Many cricketers feel that the Pakistan captain has the best cover drive right now, but Nawaz added the 28-year-old’s “on drives are also brilliant”.
He also praised Azam for being able to put his foot down and accelerate when the situation calls for it.
“The world follows his cover drives and his on drives are also brilliant, he also accelerates when needed,” Sarfraz told Cricket Pakistan.
In the T20 World Cup, Azam scored 124 runs in seven matches at an average of 17.71 and a strike-rate of 93.23.
However, he showed his class in the semi-final against New Zealand as he thumped 53 runs off 42 balls, which included seven boundaries.
Pakistan were unable to win the T20 World Cup as they lost to England by five wickets in the final.
