Lahore: Former Test cricketer advised Babar Azam to play his natural game instead of slogging the ball.
Speaking on his YouTube channel, the cricketer-turned-commentator pointed out Babar’s approach to hitting the ball hard in the third T20I. “You don’t need to slog the ball, play your natural game,” he advised.
“Babar is phenomenal when it comes to timing and he has plenty of shots to play. I observed him trying to hit the ball hard which cost him his wicket in the third T20I,” Raja said.
It must be noted here that Babar scored 21 off 188 balls with the help of three boundaries. Pakistan won the third game by 5 runs to level the T20I series 1-1.
