Mudassar Nazar, a former head coach for Pakistan, is of the opinion that star batter Babar Azam needs to produce more century in test matches in order to be counted among the all-time greats of the game.
On Thursday, the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced that Babar had won the ICC Men’s Cricketer of the Year title. Babar, who had struck nine hundreds and 26 half-centuries, also won the ODI Cricketer of the Year award for the second year in a row.
It was mentioned by Nazar that Babar needs to work on his conversion rate, and he used the example of England batter Joe Root as an analogy. Root, like Babar, had a difficult time scoring century at one point in his career.
“If Babar keeps scoring runs at the same rate he does in one-day internationals (ODIs), then he will be considered one of the all-time greats of the game of cricket. In the game of Test cricket, it is common for a player to score fifty runs but then fall short of reaching the century mark.
Joe Root struggled with the same problem, but he strove to find a solution. The most important thing for Babar to concentrate on is continuing to do the same thing “According to Cricket Pakistan, Nazar said.
However, Nazar indicated that if Babar continues to play at the best level, the 28-year-old will complete his career as one of the greatest batters created by Pakistan. This assertion was based on the assumption that Babar will continue to perform at the highest level.
In addition to this, the former head coach stated that in the future he will require appropriate backing and support from the Pakistan Cricket Board.
“Babar is just 28 years old at this point. If he keeps improving at this rate, he might wind up being one of Pakistan’s all-time greatest batters, but in order for that to happen, he needs to be more focused. In addition to this, he needs the appropriate backing and assistance from PCB “he stated.
During the 2018 season of the Pakistan Super League, Babar will take charge of the Peshawar Zalmi franchise as captain.
