Mudassar Nazar has no doubt that captain Babar Azam will become one of Pakistan’s best batsmen ever.
That being said, the former batsman warned the 28-year-old to stay focused as he wants Azam to continue down the path he is on.
In his career thus far, the Lahore native averages 48.63 in Tests, 59.41 in ODIs and 41.41 in T20Is.
“Babar is only 28 years old. The rate at which he is going, he would end up as one of the best Pakistan batsman ever, but for that he needs to be more focused,” Nazar told Cricket Pakistan.
Pakistan’s next assignment will be a limited overs series against New Zealand on home soil, which will begin on April 14 and consist of five T20Is and five ODIs.
