‘The 21st century belongs to him’, Wasim Akram says of Babar Azam, the 27-year-old batter

Wasim Akram, a former Pakistan captain and a legend of the game, showered praise on present captain Babar Azam, claiming that the 27-year-old batsman is the face of Pakistan cricket in the twenty-first century.

Babar joined the Karachi Kings in 2017, a year before the legendary cricketer was chosen as President of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise, and Akram recalled their time together.

Akram praised the youngster’s work ethic, batting consistency, and persistent desire to improve his performance.

“He rose through the ranks, and I’ve spent the last three years working with him in the Karachi Kings.”

I admire his work ethic; he is focused and never content with his results, which is a hallmark of a successful leader.

He told Sport 360, “I understood at the time that with this youngster, with his work ethic, with his potential, he would absolutely produce and be consistent.”

Babar is now up there with the Fab Four of current international cricket, according to the experienced player, who named Virat Kohli, David Warner, and Joe Root as the other three members.
