Rahmanullah Gurbaz, the attacking Afghanistan opener, said he was mesmerised by how easy Pakistan captain Babar Azam made it look to hit boundaries.

Azam is Pakistan’s most consistent run-scorer and showcased that during the Pakistan Super League (PSL), where he captained the Peshawar Zalmi.

The 28-year-old was the second-highest run-scorer with 522 runs in 11 matches, which included a century and five fifties, at an average of 52.20 and a strike-rate of 145.40.

As for Gurbaz, who played for Islamabad United, he amassed 176 runs in eight games, which included a top score of 62, at an average of 22 and a strike-rate of 149.15.

“I was just focused on how he hits the boundaries,” the 21-year-old was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.

Azam was recently in action for Pakistan as he captained the team to a 4-1 win in their ODI series against New Zealand.

The Lahore-born batsman made 276 runs in the series, which included a hundred and two half-centuries, at an average of 55.20.
