Pakistan’s captain, Babar Azam, has always received praise from both fans and experts for his magnificent batting displays, particularly for exquisite cover drives.
It is extremely difficult not to mention Babar Azam while discussing cover drives, which is why the Federal Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (FBISE) has included a question regarding Babar’s elegant cover drive in the syllabus.
A multimedia journalist, Shiraz Hassan, has pointed out that FBISE has added a question about the 27-year-old’s trademark shot in the syllabus of Physics for class 9th.
Here is the excerpt which refers to Babar Azam’s cover drive from the class 9 Physics book.

Former England cricketer turned commentator, Nasser Hussain, Australia’s legendary fast bowler, Brett Lee, and former Sri Lankan skipper, Mahela Jayawardene, are some of the renowned names of the game who have heaped praises on Babar’s cover drive.
