Pakistani great believes Babar Azam is ready for Test cricket
Karachi: Pakistan’s Babar Azam scored third consecutive century for Pakistan in the final ODI match of the three match series against West Indies which lead Pakistan to another win and hence completed a well deserved whitewash.
Babar Azam was Pakistan’s standout player during the series as he bagged the man of the series award. His exploits with the bat meant that he has now joined Saeed Anwar and Zaheer Abbas as the only players to have scored three consecutive centuries. Babar Azam also broke the record for most runs in a three match ODI series for Pakistan.
Former Pakistani right arm ace fast bowler Waqar Younis believes that Babar Azam is now ready to play Test cricket for Pakistan. He expressed these views on social media website Twitter after the match ended.
