People can’t get enough of Pakistan captain Babar Azam when he is batting since he is that entertaining to watch, veteran wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal said.
Many current and former players firmly believe that the 28-year-old is one of the elite batsmen in the world as he has made his presence felt in all three formats.
Most recently, Azam was in action in the three-Test series against England, where he scored 348 runs, which included a century and three fifties, at an average of 58.
Despite excelling with the bat, he was unable to stop his side from succumbing to a 3-0 whitewash.
“People enjoyed watching him bat,” Akmal was quoted as saying by Cricwick.
