Lockdown due to coronavirus pandemic has changed everyone’s routine. When it comes to cricketers, they will be rusty after quite a long break from the game. This is the reason why Babar Azam feels that he will get back to basics as soon as the pandemic is over.
While he acknowledged that it will take some time to regain his form, he is confident of coming out on the field as the same Babar Azam as his fans want to see.
It might take some time to regain the rhythm, but the base is there, and inshallah (God willing) I will be the same Babar Azam you saw a few weeks ago.
The run-machine last played a competitive match in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) a few weeks back, and he is confident that his basics are strong. Analyzing the reasons behind his success in recent times, the T20I captain said that he has now overcome complacency and plays with a positive approach.
I used to become complacent easily if I performed well. I used to have a negative thought process and that’s the area I realised I had to cover.
Talking about scoring runs, he said that contributing to his team’s success makes him happier than just scoring runs in a losing cause.
In the lockdown, Babar watches his batting to assess his game and identify the areas he can improve on, saying he is a lot more focused on expanding his game than just scoring runs.
