Babar Azam has shouldered the burden of scoring runs for Pakistan across format with ease. As a result, he is compared with the likes of one of the finest cricketers of the generation Virat Kohli. His success in international cricket has bore fruits for him with his board further appointing him as the captain of the limited-overs side.
Pakistan are scheduled to resume their cricket season in England and has shown willingness to send their squad for the Test and T20I series starting in July. The three-Test series against England is slated to get underway from July 30 with the final match to conclude on August 24.
Babar Azam Has Fault In His Batting Technique, Says Former Pakistan Cricket Aamer Sohail
Babar Azam has scored at an average of 45 in the longest format and over 50 in the limited-overs, which says a lot about his batting. But former Pakistan cricketer Aamer Sohail, who is known for initiating controversies, said Babar Azam has a fault in his technique related to his setup and stance. He added, his trigger movement is slightly off as he avoids getting plumb or caught in front of the pads.
“There is a fault in Babar Azam’s technique related to his setup and stance. His trigger movement is slightly off, which could be because he wants to avoid getting bowled or LBW, but if he can correct that he can get into a better position and dominate the bowlers even more,” said Sohail while talking on his official YouTube channel.
“I hope that Misbahul Haq would have already identified this and will do what’s necessary to fix this issue as this will make Babar an even bigger threat for the opposition,” he added.
Azam will be next seen in action in Pakistan’s tour to England.
