Babar has, no doubt, proved to be Pakistan’s best batsman for the last couple of years or so across all the formats of the game.
His consistency has earned him the praise of many cricket greats. Not just that, cricket gurus are putting Babar Azam in the same category as Virat Kohli and Steve Smith.
Recently, when a fan asked former Australian Cricketer, Brad Hogg, to pick the best batsman between Babar and India’s KL Rahul. The 49-year-old absolutely had no doubts in picking Babar Azam as the best of the two.
Hmmm, Babar. https://t.co/8cIp53AExZ

It is pertinent to mention that KL Rahul is just behind Babar Azam in the ICC T20 rankings. Babar is the number one T20 batsman at the moment, with KL Rahul taking the second spot.
During the recently held Pakistan Super League, Babar Azam emerged as the leading run-scorer in 10 games. The right-handed batsman managed to score 345 runs in his 9 innings.
Babar Azam has represented Pakistan in 26 test matches, 74 One day internationals and 38 T20Is. The 25-year-old averages over 50 in both ODIs and T20Is, while his test cricket average is 45.
