Legendary Pakistan batsman Mohammad Yousuf is unfazed by captain Babar Azam’s lack of returns in Test cricket in recent times as he backed the talented 26-year-old to shrugs off his poor form and score big in his next Test assignment.

The 46-year-old reckoned that being in and out of form is part and parcel of the game and he doesn’t believe that Babar Azam has any technical issues at the moment.

“Sometimes it happens in cricket. When you are playing cricket on a regular basis, you get some innings where you don’t score a lot of runs. This does not mean that there is a problem. It is a part of the game. Being in and out of form is just part of it. His drills and practices are phenomenal so he will definitely score in the next series,” Mohammad Yousuf said as quoted by Cricket Pakistan.

 

The practice he does is really hard: Mohammad Yousuf on Babar Azam

The former Pakistan international further stated that Babar Azam is technically very sound and he is working consistently to improve his game in the longest format of the game.

“There is no doubt about it. Babar Azam is technically very sound and is working hard. The practice he does is really hard which pays off on the ground. He scores a lot of runs and holds phenomenal rankings in each format of the sport. When you work hard on the abilities that Allah has granted you then you improve day by day. It can be seen by his cricket that how much he is improving over time,” Mohammad Yousuf said.

Babar Azam has suffered a lean patch in Test cricket since the start of 2021. In the six innings that he has batted, the Pakistan captain has managed just 124 runs at an average of 20.66 with just one half-century.

His last six scores in Test cricket read: 7,30,77,8,0,2 (most recent last).
