There is no denying that Babar Azam is a “world-class batsman”, legendary cricketer Javed Miandad said about the Pakistan captain.

Azam is constantly compared to the best batsmen in the world due to his outstanding ability to score runs consistently in all types of conditions.

The 28-year-old added to his already certified credentials in the first Test against New Zealand as he struck a breathtaking 161, which came off 280 balls and included 15 boundaries and a six.

Given how regularly he makes big scores, Miandad conceded that Azam belongs in the company of the sport’s elite cricketers.

“Babar is a world-class batsman,” he was quoted as saying by Cricwick.
