Babar Azam has made Pakistan proud with his spectacular performance in ICC Champions Trophy 2017.
Over time, his skills have evolved a lot and we can surely say that he is amongst the best rising star in Pakistan’s cricket team.
Just recently, during an exchange on Twitter, one die-hard fan of Azam compared him to Indian skipper Virat Kohli.

But Babar Azam had some other title in mind for himself
there is no comparison. @imVkohli is a great batsman and I am just a beginner. But I would like to be recalled as Babar Azam of Pakistan 🙂 https://t.co/fqiF6ZKJ2J

Well, he is right! Just see the records Babar has been making since its debut in 2015.
- the joint-fastest player in history to score 1,000 career runs in one-day internationals, equalling the record with the West Indies great Viv Richards, England’s Kevin Pietersen and Jonathan Trott as well as South Africa’s Quinton de Kock.
- scored 1,455 runs in 31 ODI innings at an average of 53.88
- the highest-ranked ODI batsman from Pakistan at number five.
The champ has proved that he is someone who had the ability to uphold the team’s shaky middle-order.
What are your takes on the Pakistani star?
