The video caught the attention of Michael Vaughan, and he commented that it showed great skill and predicted that the Babar would score a lot of runs in Australia.

Vaughan wrote, “Lots of runs Down Under is my guess.”
Babar Azam’s captaincy was marked by both personal and team achievements. He established himself as a prolific ODI batsman, becoming the fastest Pakistani to reach 1,000 runs and the first to score three consecutive centuries in the format.
Under his captaincy, Pakistan rose to the top of the ICC ODI rankings. However, their performance in the recent World Cup fell short of expectations, as they managed only four wins in nine matches and finished fifth, narrowly missing out on a semi-final berth.
Meanwhile, Babar Azam’s personal performance in the tournament also dipped, as he scored 320 runs in nine innings at an average of 40, with the help of four half-centuries.
