Melbourne: Australia’s team will soon tour Pakistan. Where the Australian team will play a 3-match test series with Pakistan. Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting has praised Babar Azam ahead of the Test series against Pakistan.
Ponting said Babar Azam will soon become the number one Test batsman as he has all the qualities a Test batsman should have.
Ricky Ponting said that Babar Azam is already doing well in T20 cricket. For the last 4-5 years, he has been playing very well in ODI and T20 cricket. He is like “Shaheen”. I didn’t see these players playing outside much. But when it came to Australia, I saw Babar Azam batting.
Ponting further said that in the second innings of Brisbane when I saw Babar Azam batting against Australia. Babar’s few shots on the front foot and back foot on the bouncy pitch of Brisbane were amazing. I had heard a lot about Babar in ODIs and T20 cricket. But this player is really awesome.
Ricky Ponting said that I think I said then that the sky is the limit for this player. It is a challenge for Babar Azam to become the number one Test batsman. He will give good competition to the rest of the batsmen for this position. If he continues to bat the way he has been doing, he will definitely knock on the door for the number one batsman.
