Gautam Gambhir, a former Indian cricketer, has praised the hitting skills of Pakistan’s captain, saying that he could “light up the World Cup.” When asked by an Indian TV station to name one batsman to watch out for in this World Cup, the former Indian opener picked the Pakistani captain.
Babar Azam will shine at the World Cup, says Gautam Gambhir
The host took players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, David Warner, Steve Smith, Kane Williamson, Joe Root, and Kane Williamson from New Zealand and England. Gambhir, on the other hand, picked Babar Azam. The International Cricket Council (ICC) says that Pakistan’s captain Babar Azam is the best one-day international (ODI) bowler in the world right now.
With a score of 857, Azam is at the top of the list. In Tests, the captain of the Green Shirts is currently ranked fourth with an 829 grade. Since about 900 days ago, the 28-year-old has been named as the best ODI batter.
The Men in Green’s World Cup will start on October 6 when they play the Netherlands in Hyderabad. The most-anticipated match of the World Cup will be between Pakistan and India on October 14 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmadabad. More than 132,000 people will be there.
