Babar not performing according to expectations in Test cricket: Inzamam
The 51-year-old believed that a batsman like Babar needed to make regular hundreds
Pakistan’s legendary former batsman Inzamamul Haq, in a Youtube video on Wednesday, stated that skipper Babar Azam was not performing according to expectations in Test cricket.
The 51-year-old believed that a batsman like Babar needed to make regular hundreds.
“I have seen for a long time that Babar Azam hasn’t scored a hundred. He is the type of player that we like to see regularly score run and hundreds. He should be doing that because he is at his peak right now. I do not like Babar getting out on 70’s or 80’s. He has to play the big knocks and be the role model for the batsmen in the side. This is very important,” Inzamam said.
“[Mohammad] Rizwan has been performing well and should also be playing big knocks. 20’s and 30’s don’t help you against big sides. I give credit to Fawad Alam who plays big knocks once he gets settled. He takes it to at least three figures which is a very good thing. Other batsmen should also follow suit,” he added.
The former batsman praised Pakistan’s bowling efforts in the series against West Indies.
“The tailenders have also been playing well and when we see the series then Pakistan’s bowlers performed really well especially when they were trying to defend a low total. They had aggression and did not give up despite trying to defend a very low total. Pakistan had the match in their hands at one time, but then it went away because of some dropped catches. If you drop catches while defending a low total, it becomes really difficult. Pakistan fielding standard improved greatly in the second Test. Especially Imran took some great catches slip. I have seen someone so good at that position after a long while,” he concluded.
