I Face 500-600 Balls During Practice Session: Babar Azam

Babar Azam, the all-around captain of Pakistan in all formats, discussed the secret to his success in international cricket.


It looks like Babar religiously follows “practise makes man perfect”. The right-handed batter revealed that he plays 500–600 balls every day during his most recent interview.

He revealed that in his daily practise, he played 500–600 balls, even doubles when he was not in the best shape. In his opinion, everyone who wants to perform on the ground needs to practise.

Unquestionably, Babar is among the top batters of the present. His outstanding performance in 2022 earned him the ICC Cricketer of the Year award recently.


The captain claimed that correcting any batting errors takes time. Whether you perform or not, criticism is constantly present. Everyone has a unique perspective.

“I think when you find any fault in your batting, it takes some time.” “People want things to get right immediately, which is not possible,” added Babar, as he often faces criticism for his batting strike rate.

Azam Siddique, Babar’s father, has made a significant contribution to his son’s accomplishments. Azam was his son’s mentor throughout his time playing cricket, from his early years to when he became captain of the national team.

“My father rarely gets satisfied with my performance because he doesn’t want me to take things for granted.” “He always tries to give me some advice so that I can get better and better,” he highlighted.

“Now, he sometimes praises me. But I think it’s good for you that your elders keep guiding you and want more from you,” he concluded.

In the current eighth season of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), Babar ranks second in terms of runs scored. In nine games, he has thus far amassed 416 runs, including his first PSL century.
