Karachi: Karachi Kings’ star batsman Babar Azam has confirmed that he will bat as an opener in the remaining matches of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season six.
The 26-year-old Babar open the innings for Kings with hard-hitter Sharjeel Khan but after the induction of Martin Guptill, who also bats at the top, there were rumors that Babar might bat at number three.
“Martin Guptill is a great addition as I have played with him in CPL. I have a great bonding with him, he is a different kind of player and when he bats, he changes the complexion of the game,” Babar said in an exclusive interview with ARY News.
“I am going to bat at my number. Sometimes you can bat at a different number for the team but here [in Abu Dhabi] I’ll open,” he added.
On the other hand, Babar is confident that Kings will retain the PSL title. “Personally, I am confident of winning the title once again, We’ll try to continue the momentum of Karachi-leg here,” he added.
It must be noted Karachi Kings currently stands at the top of the points table with six points (three wins and two losses).
