Ricky Ponting makes bold statement on Babar Azam’s future


Karachi: Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting thinks that Pakistan T20I captain Babar Azam will become one of the best batsmen in world cricket.

Ponting while interacting with the fans on Twitter was asked a question about the 25-year-old great batting display in the series against the Kangaroos in Australia in November 2019 on which he wrote.

“I thought Babar was extremely impressive. Looks to have a lot of class and could well become one of the best batsmen in the world,”

World number 7th ranked Test batsman Babar Azam batted beautifully in the Australia Test series. Babar was the highest run-scorer with 210 runs at 52.50. He scored a century in Brisbane Test and a 97 in the second Test at Adelaide.

It must be noted Pakistan lost badly to Australia and got whitewashed in the two-match series.
