Shahid Afridi, a former all-rounder from Pakistan, thinks that the current captain of the national team possesses the finest cover drive in the world.
Pakistan’s famous cricketer Babar Azam is highly regarded for his exceptional skill in playing cover drives. He has received praise and recognition both in Pakistan and internationally for his batting prowess.
Former cricketer Shahid Afridi, known for his outspoken nature, ranked Babar Azam’s cover drives above those of Indian cricketer Virat Kohli and Australian cricketer Steve Smith. When asked to compare the three players’ cover drives, Afridi placed Babar at the top of the list.
Babar’s cover drives have also earned admiration from English cricket legend Nasir Hussain and former Sri Lankan cricketer Mahela Jayawardene. They have praised Babar’s technique and described his cover drive as phenomenal and the best in the world.
