Pakistan captain Babar Azam should drown out all the noise and “clear his mind” as he “knows his own game”, former Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ramiz Raja said.
This comes after many people have called on the 28-year-old to score runs quicker, especially in T20Is.
However, Ramiz wants Azam to play how he feels comfortable as it has brought him so much success.
“He should clear his mind because he knows his own game,” he said on fans forum with Ramiz as quoted by Cricwick.
Azam was in fine form in the three-Test series against England as he scored 348 runs, which included a hundred and three fifties, at an average of 58.
Currently, he is in action against New Zealand and continued his dominant streak as he struck an unbeaten 161 on the opening day of the first Test in Karachi, which came off 277 balls and included 15 boundaries and a six.
