Misbah-ul-Haq said Pakistan captain Babar Azam takes things to a “new level” when it comes to his dedication to training and enhancing his skillset.
Azam’s determination to keep developing his game and get better is what has led to him becoming one of the most consistent run-scorers in the sport.
He recently led Pakistan to a 2-0 Test series win over Sri Lanka, but only managed to make 76 runs at an average of 25.33.
Nonetheless, Misbah praised the 28-year-old for his outstanding commitment to honing his overall game.
“He takes his practising and perfecting his skills to a new level,” he told The National.
Pakistan’s next assignment will be a three-match ODI series against Afghanistan, which will be played in Sri Lanka from August 22 to 26.
