England fast bowler James Anderson has said that Pakistan captain Babar Azam will get special attention during the three-Test series as everyone knows how important it is to get him out early.
Azam has been in fantastic form throughout the year, even though he has had a few dips here and there.
When it comes to Test cricket in 2022, the 28-year-old has scored 661 runs in five matches, which includes two centuries, at an average of 73.44.
Knowing how dangerous Azam is and the fact that he can pile on the runs, Anderson has the Pakistan skipper in his sights, along with the rest of England’s bowling attack.
“We’re well aware how important a wicket Babar is for Pakistan,” he was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
The first Test between Pakistan and England will be held in Rawalpindi.
Pakistan’s Squad for England Test Series: Babar Azam (capt), Mohammad Rizwan, Imam-ul-Haq, Abdullah Shafique, Azhar Ali, Abrar Ahmed, Mohammad Ali, Shan Masood, Faheem Ashraf, Haris Rauf, Mohammad Nawaz, Nauman Ali, Saud Shakeel, Zahid Mahmood, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Naseem Shah, Salman Ali Agha, Sarfaraz Ahmed
