Pakistan Cricket team coach Mickey Arthur has praised Pakistan young batsman Babar Azam and has termed him perfectionist who looks unbelievable when in full flow.
Talking about the Babar Azam before Pakistan’s ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match against South Africa at Lords, Mickey termed Pakistan Azam a perfectionist who is unbelievable and incredibly hungry in his quest to be best.
“Babar Azam, he is unbelievable, incredibly hungry in his quest to be best. You see him batting and even when he hits bad shot, his body language gives it other way. He is perfectionist, artist, a surgeon when he goes their batting,” Arthur said.
“I just want to see him turning those good innings into match winning performances for us. Because then he will be remembered as great. I want to see him dominate, winning games. Everytime he goes their I push him because I know he can win games for us,” he added.
In the same video taken by ICC Official, Babar Azam has said that the star he wears on his chest is the thing that he has wanted all his life and he is proud of it.
“This Star, I feel proud wearing, I can’t explain the feeling the moment I started to wear it. From childhood I had dream to see me wearing this shirt and I was dream come true when I finally did it,” Babar said.

“I always want myself to perform well so that people will say Babar Azam is also a player. There are players like David Warner, Jos Butler, Jason Roy and Eoin Morgan who are match winners for their team. I want to be a match winner but I have different style then them. I take time in the middle and my strike is between 100 and 80. My aim always is to stay there still the end for my team,” Babar said.
