Harbhajan Praises Babar Azam As ‘One Of All Time Greats In Cricket History
Pakistan captain Babar Azam has always been a consistent player for his team following his debut in 2015. The right-handed batsman has produced match-winning performances for his nation and is a very efficient batsman. As a consequence, the dispute about whether Babar was a member of the famed ‘Fab Four’ develops heavier day by day.
Former Indian player Harbhajan Singh has indeed argued that Pakistan’s captain will be included in the elite category, which features modern-day superstars such as Virat Kohli, Steve Smith, Joe Root, and Kane Williamson. The players listed here have all won matches for their countries of origin and have been successful with the bat throughout all formats of the sport.
Babar will go down in cricket history as one of the greatest of all time: Harbhajan
“I believe it is too early to say whether he will be able to join the Fab Four. I’m not even sure who the Fab 4 are”, Harbhajan said.
“He will go down in cricket history as one of the greatest of all time. But it’s too soon to call him in any category at this point. Allow him to play and continue to score runs and win games for his club. And in terms of skill, he’s on a level with anyone else,” Harbhajan Singh added.
The right-handed hitter has played 40 Tests, 86 ODIs, and 74 T20Is for Pakistan. It is worth noting that Babar seems to be the only player who is among the top 5 in all ICC rankings. He is placed first in the limited-overs format and 5th in the longest version of the game. Babar also accomplished 23 centuries in International and 65 half-centuries.
It should be emphasized that skipper Babar has an avg of 45+ throughout all 3 formats of the game, it was under his leadership that Pakistan defeated arch-rival India in the 2021 T20 World Cup, which broke India’s winning streak over Pakistan. However, the arch-rivals are going to face each other in the upcoming 2022 T20 World Cup, on October 23, 2022 — at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Australia. As the schedule for ICC T20 World Cup is announced the national teams are in preparations for the gala event.
