Babar Azam, a legend in the sport of cricket in Pakistan, recently broke the record for the quickest player to reach 5000 runs in one-day internationals (ODIs), and now he has his sights set on a new accomplishment.
Babar reflected on his road to become a cricket icon and highlighted the highlights of his career before Pakistan’s fifth One-Day International match against New Zealand.
One of those moments was Babar’s maiden call-up to the national squad.
Babar recalled the moment he told his family about joining the national squad, saying, “I was sitting with them, and it made them happy.”
“When I entered the Gaddafi Stadium as a Pakistan player, I thought back on my journey of how I used to come here as a ball picker and how I had come here before Inzamam-ul-Haq’s final Test match, which was against South Africa, as a net bowler.”
Babar also discussed the impact that his former head coach, Mickey Arthur, played in helping him turn around his career and find his stride as a batsman.
During the time when Babar was playing for the West Indies national cricket team, Mickey Arthur was Babar’s coach.
Since taking over as captain in 2019, Babar has seen nothing but an increase in his statistics, and he is now focused on leading Pakistan to victory at the World Cup. Babar is looking forward to playing a key role in Pakistan’s success.
Babar expressed his desire and motivation to lead his team to new heights by saying, “It would be sweet to be the captain of a team that won the World Cup.”
Babar’s statement reveals his ambition and drive to guide his team to new heights.
There is no question in our minds that Babar is destined for greatness because to the combination of his talent and his tenacity; in fact, we can’t wait to see what he accomplishes in the future!
