Ever since his stint with Somerset in T20 Vitality Blast, Babar Azam has established himself as one of the most well-rounded batsmen in modern cricket.
Babar’s comparisons have been drawn with likes of Virat Kohli, Steve Smith, Joe Root and Kane Williamson, which in itself is a huge accomplishment for the youngster.
After his stylish innings on the first day in a match against Australia A, Australian legend Micheal Hussey showered Babar Azam with praise.
If Babar Azam can start hitting some big hundreds in Tests, he can be in that same conversation when we talk about the best players in the world, like Virat Kohli, Steve Smith, Kane Williamson and Joe Root. He’s that good, he’s a brilliant player.
This is not the first time Azam has been publicly praised as the right-hander has gathered a lot of fans across the globe.
Previously, Raunak Kapoor, ESPNcricinfo presenter said:
Babar Azam is just in a different league compared to the rest of the Pakistan batting. Much like Sachin in the early-mid 90s and Lara throughout his career. One man, different class, way above the rest.
