Wasim Akram draws parallels with Sachin Tendulkar and Lara when comparing with Babar Azam

Babar Azam has been in deft touch in the Pakistan Super League. In just 5 matches the former Pakistan Cricket Team skipper has amassed 330 and holds a strong average of 82.5.

Pakistan Cricket Team legendary bowler Wasim Akram heaped praises for Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara. While drawing parallels for Babar Azam with the duo, Akram claimed Babar is one of the best batters in the world. Akram went on to explain that it take special deliveries to dismiss these batters.

Wasim Akram drew the parallel when he was questioned by a fan on a talk show. The fan wanted to know how to bowl out Babar Azam who is currently in very good form in the Pakistan Super League.

“Babar is a very good player. He is among the three best batters in the world right now and he plays proper cricketing shots. Had he been a pinch hitter, then the bowler would know that he has a chance to get him out,” Wasim Akram said in a talk show.

The legendary pacer went on to reveal that Babar Azam currently is among the top three batters. Akram claimed that if he was a pinch hitter, it would have been easy to pick his wicket.

But Babar…for players like Brian Lara and Sachin Tendulkar, it was difficult to bowl to them because they play good shots against good deliveries and hence gives you lesser opportunities to dismiss them. These are technically-good batters. But yes, bowl attacking lines in the first few overs just to check whether they are set on that particular track,” Akram concluded.
