Babar Azam

Every cricket fan is aware of the fact the Babar Azam is a class act when he bats in his zone. He is a wonderful timer of cricket ball who can set it to perfection.

Pakistan’s struggle continues to avert their defeat in the second Test against Australia. In response to the huge target of 506 runs from the Kangaroos, Pakistan has scored 186 runs for two wickets in 78 overs. Meanwhile, skipper Babar Azam has completed his century in Tests after a long time.

Babar completed the sixth century of his Test career with the help of 12 fours in 182 balls. His century has come after about 25 months. This is Babar’s third century on Pakistani soil while this is the sixth century overall. Babar has now become the first captain of Pakistan, whose name has been recorded in all three formats.

Babar is leading the team from the front after averting Pakistan’s defeat at the National Stadium in Karachi. During this, Abdullah Shafiq is also supporting him well. There has been a partnership of more than 170 runs between the two batsmen.

Babar had earlier completed the 20th half-century of his career and now he has converted it into a century. The Pakistani captain completed his century in the 78th over off Mitchell Swepson, his first Test century since February 2020.

Babar Azam has been compared to Indian captain Virat Kohli from time to time in view of the manner in which he bats and stands as a wall for the team in difficult situations. Although Babar Azam still has a young career, this batsman has left his mark in international cricket at the very beginning of his career.

Babar Azam, speaking to broadcasters after the conclusion of the fourth day’s match, said, “This innings means a lot to me, because the team needed it. Luckily I shared a good partnership with Shafiq. The match is not over yet. So, we have to continue like this and the coming batsmen also have to do well. After the first innings, we practised in the nets to give a befitting reply to the reverse swing bowlers and understood that we have to play a little late.”
