Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer has selected Pakistan’s Babar Azam as one of the top 5 batsmen ‘of the moment.’
Jaffer, who played as a top order batsman, selected Pakistan’s T20I captain in the list along with Steve Smith (Australia), Virat Kohli (India), Kane Williamson (New Zealand) and Joe Root (England).
Earlier, Aakash Chopra, a former India batsman, said Babar’s performances were comparable to those of his Indian counterpart Virat Kohli.
“Babar stands shoulder-to-shoulder with Kohli (in terms of performances). [How can he] be left out from the fab-four list when he is placed at top five across all five formats?” asked Chopra.
The Pakistan batsman leads the batsmen’s T20I ranking and is put in the ODIs on third place. In Tests, he ranks fifth.
