The ex wicketkeeper of the Pakistan Cricket Team, Rashid Latif, believes Babar Azam, Pakistan’s most talented batsman currently, is potent and incredible of all former Pakistan’s cricketing legends.
Giving the examples of Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Shoaib Akhtar, Salqain Mushtaq, and Mushtaq, who were the greatest bowlers of all the time and are still known, he also gave the examples of Pakistan’s well-known batsman such as Javed Miandad, Inzamam ul Haq, Yousuf Yohana, and Saeed Anwar. He believes Babar is the still incredible one among all of them.
Rashid Latif chooses Babar Azam ahead of all Pakistani cricketing legends
“During my career, I met many great players. Bowlers like Wasim, Waqar, Shoaib, Saqlain and Mushtaq and Batsmen like Miandad, Inzi, Yousuf, Saeed, and Younus but Babar is the most incredible of them all,” he tweeted.
However, PCB has chosen Babar Azam as the skipper of One-Day International (format) along with the twenty-twenty International (T20I) format.
Previously, when Sarfaraz Ahmed was sacked off from captaincy of all three formats, Babar Azam was chosen as the skipper of T20Is whereas, Azhar Ali was appointed as the test skipper, however, the decision to choose ODI captain was left vacant.
No ODI captain was chosen because Pakistan wasn’t to play any 50 overs game in the near future. However, one-off ODI against Bangladesh was all set to be played in the first week of April, but it got suspended due to Coronavirus pandemic or else Babar Azam would have made his ODI debut as a captain.
During my career, I met many great players. Bowlers like Wasim , Waqar, Shoaib, Saqlain and Mushtaq and Batsmen like Miandad , Inzi, Yousuf, Saeed and Younus but @babarazam258 is the most incredible of them all.
