The all-format Pakistan captain is renowned for his glorious drives which have bamboozled the best bowlers in the world.
Babar Azam’s cover drive has now been included in the syllabus of Physics for the 9th class. This was pointed out on social media and it has caught fire.
Babar’s drives are globally renowned and his cover drive has been ranked above the likes of Steve Smith, Virat Kohli, and more.
Former England captain Nasser Hussain, Sri Lankan captain Mahela Jayawardene, and Australian pacer Brett Lee are some of the renowned names to have praised Babar’s stupendous drives.
Babar Azam, the Pakistan captain, has moved up to third place in the latest ICC Test batting rankings.
He moved up three places after Steve Smith (855), Marnus Labuschagne (849), and Joe Root (842) all lost points on the conclusion of the third Ashes Test.
Babar now has 862 points, which is just 21 points behind the current world number one, New Zealand captain, Kane Williamson (883 points).
If Babar does well in the upcoming two-match Test series against Sri Lanka, starting from July 16, he will be in a strong position to challenge Williamson for the top spot in the rankings.
Former Australian national team skipper and international cricketer Steven Peter Devereux Smith was born in Australia on June 2, 1989. Smith is best recognised for his excellent track record of run production in Test cricket. Smith’s notably high Test batting average has led to parallels to batter Don Bradman. Steve Smith
Smith played mostly as a batsman after being originally chosen for Australia as a right-arm leg spinner. After participating in five games between 2010 and 2011, he was called back to the Australian squad in 2013. He succeeded Michael Clarke as captain in late 2015, after which he primarily batted at number 3 or 4.Steve Smith
Tim Paine took over as team captain after Smith resigned after being highly criticised for approving ball tampering in the third Test against South Africa in March 2018. Smith was given a one-year suspension from all domestic and international cricket in Australia as a result of a Cricket Australia inquiry. He was also disqualified from consideration for any leadership positions for an additional year.
Virat’s average stood more than 50.00 for 6 out of the 10 years he played. His last two years in ODI cricket were a dream run for any cricketer as he averaged 92.38 in 2016 & 76.84 in 2017.
No surprise as he ended as the leading ODI run scorer of 2017 & 2018. Virat has already been the leading run scorer for the year 2011 before, one of the important years in Indian cricket history.
