Pakistan skipper Babar Azam said that he is enjoying his current run in world cricket but insisted that he will feel even better if he can help his team secure the upcoming T20 World Cup and the ODI World Cup next year.
Babar recently became the first man in ODI history to score three consecutive centuries on two different occasions. His form makes him the undisputed best in the format currently, but he hopes to continue till Pakistan is at the top.
“No doubt I am enjoying my form. But with this form my prime goal is to win the two World Cups for Pakistan in the next one-and-a-half years and if that happens I will feel that my runs are worth gold.”
“When I started playing cricket as a schoolboy the target was to play international cricket for Pakistan, become the world’s top batsman in such a manner that it helps my team to win all the titles,” Babar told AFP.
“If I am scoring runs then other batters will follow and get inspired” – Babar Azam
Babar’s form at the top has covered up for the lack of runs from the middle order at times but the 28-year-old hoped his teammates get inspired by him and start racking up the runs.
“As captain, I want to take the challenge because I am at the front. If I am in front, only then my team will follow me and that is the same with run scoring.”
“If I am scoring runs then other batters will follow and get inspired, but there is always room for improvement so I want to improve my finishing and that is important as captain,” he further said.
The upcoming T20 World Cup will be played in Australia before the 2023 ODI World Cup takes place in India.
