“Sorry Indian Fans I’m gonna be biased and go with Baber Azam. I nearly went with Kohli. He has the fast flick of the wrist but Baber Azam has the conventional way of playing it and I must rank him above Kohli”, Hussain added.
The right-handed Pakistan Team Skipper, Baber Azam, is currently the only cricketer who grabs top-three positions across all formats in the ICC’s batting rankings. He stands top in ODI cricket and third in test cricket.
Recently, Azam named the record for Fastest Asian batsman to reach the landmark of 10000 runs, overtaking the great Virat Kohli. Baber Azam will appear in action in the upcoming tour of the Netherlands, starting on 16th August 2022.
