Imran Khan, the former captain who led Pakistan to glory in the 1992 World Cup, said current skipper Babar Azam has all the traits to be an incredibly successful batsman.
He noted that it is “very rare” for a batsman to have exceptional “technique, talent and temperament”.
Imran noted that he spotted this since he has analysed the 28-year-old “through a bowler’s lens”.
“I have analysed him in every way because I analyse batsman through a bowler’s lens. His technique, talent and temperament are all brilliant. It is very rare to find all three of these things in one batsman, but he has them all,” the former Pakistan Prime Minister was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
Azam is now leading Pakistan in their two-Test series against Sri Lanka, which will be held until July 28.
Pakistan Squad for Sri Lanka Test Series: Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (vc & wk), Aamer Jamal, Abdullah Shafique, Abrar Ahmed, Hasan Ali, Imam-ul-Haq, Muhammad Huraira, Mohammad Nawaz, Naseem Shah, Noman Ali, Salman Ali Agha, Sarfaraz Ahmed (wk), Saud Shakeel, Shaheen Shah Afridi and Shan Masood
