  • Haider Ali. He’s better than over rated babar azam, better body language, more aggressive, more flair.
    Come on Haider.

  • Watch zaheer abbas on YouTube , no player can even touch the grace and elegance of great Zaheer Abbas when it comes to cover drives , these crude lads are irrelevant

  • Babar Azam is the best but people are saying that Haider Ali will cross Babar and Kohli, anyways Babar Azam is the best.
