Babar Azam is one of the finest players of the current Pakistan cricket team having the ability to single handedly win games for his teams. Statistically so far, Babar Azam is even ahead of Indian master batsman Virat Kohli at this stage of his career.
Babar Azam was recently made the heir to Sarfaraz Ahmad and on his first outing as the vice captain the stylish right handed batsman scored a ton to help his side win by a big margin against the Islanders. But we have often seen Babar Azam throwing away his wicket as he looks settled to score big and this is exactly what Boom Boom Afridi has to say.
Talking about Babar Azam on his YouTube Channel, the former captain said that he usually tells Babar Azam about his ability of scoring big. Shahid Afridi said that Babar Azam is capable of scoring a double ton in one day internationals.
“I say to Babar Azam I want you to play long innings and you are not just a 50 runs type player, rather you are capable of scoring 100, 150 or 200,” Said Afridi.
Afridi went on to add that Babar Azam is the backbone of the national cricket team.
“You are the backbone of the team and a consistent performer for Pakistan.”
