New Delhi. Pakistan’s star batsman Babar Azam is one of the star players in the world these days. He has recently named two ICC awards. He is also being compared to former Indian captain Virat Kohli. However, he also had to face criticism a few days ago. But in the last few years, he has also achieved many big achievements.
The Pakistani captain has recently been awarded the ICC Cricketer of the Year Award. Apart from this, he was also selected for the ODI Cricketer of the Year 2022. At the same time, recently, former Australian veteran Ricky Ponting has praised Babar fiercely. He had said, ‘I think Babar is yet to improve. What Babar has done in all three formats in the last three to four years. He may be capable of many things. So it is a very scary thought.
In this way your confidence increases – Babar Azam
After receiving praise from Ricky Ponting, Babar told the ICC, ‘When a legendary player praises you, then your confidence increases. You try to be better. It comes to your mind that such a big player is talking good things about you. Because these players have gone through it, they know what my mindset is. I try to take these things in a positive way and will try to give my best.
