Babar Azam shines for Pakistanis against CA XI

Shukriya Pakistan

Young Babar Azam played a masterful innings of 98 to help Pakistanis post a fighting 334 for seven against Cricket Australia XI during a tour match at Allan Border Field in Brisbane on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old Babar was supported by Sharjeel Khan (62), Shoaib Malik (49) and Umar Akmal (54), before fast bowlers came into action to wreak havoc on an largely inexperienced CA XI side.

Pakistanis dismissed CA XI for 138, winning the match by a comprehensive 196-run margin.
