The Iceland Cricket dropped a comment, which has indeed angered the Pakistan and Babar Azam fans. They responded, “The batting average of Babar Azam”. Iceland Cricket’s reply went viral in no time.
Check out the tweet below:-
Babar Azam is a Pakistani cricketer and a former captain considered one of the top batsmen in modern cricket. He kick-started his cricketing venture with confidence and created waves in international cricket with his consistency.
Pakistan cricket team immensely benefitted from his services and was considered one of the best batters in the world. He is often praised for his classical and stylish batting style. He is known for playing elegant shots on both sides of the wicket and has a solid technique.
One of the notable aspects of Babar’s batting is his consistency across formats. He has been a prolific run-scorer and has maintained a high batting average. However, his batting average did get hit in recent times when he should have stepped up games when the team required it.
He was not up to the mark during the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023. He was able to garner only 320 runs, which is really low, considering a player of his stature.
Moreover, Babar is known for adapting his game to different formats and situations. Whether it’s anchoring the innings in Tests or playing aggressive strokes in limited-overs formats, he has shown versatility in his batting approach.
