‘For me, Babar Azam is in fab five’ Nasser Hussain


Manchester: Former Test cricketer Nasser Hussain was highly impressed with Babar Azam who completed his 14th Test fifty on Day 1 of the opening Test against England at Old Trafford. 

While analyzing Babar’s form on Sky Sports, Hussain highly praised the righi-handed batsman in fabulous five besides Virat Kohli, Steve Smith, Kane Williamson, and Joe Root.

“If this lad was Virat Kohli, everyone would be talking about it but because it is Babar Azam, no one is talking about it. He’s young, he’s elegant, he’s got all the swagger. They keep going on about the fab four, it’s the fab five and Babar Azam is in that,” he was quoted saying.

It must be noted here that Babar has so far scored 1850 runs in 26 Tests at an average of 45.12 with five hundreds.
