Srinagar: Former India opener Wasim Jaffer has said that Pakistan captain Babar Azam is currently ruling all formats ane player like him cant be kept out of game for long.
“Babar Azam is at such a stage of his career that his name is included when we speak of the top 4 or 5 cricket in grades in the world,” said Wasim Jaffer while speaking to CricTracker.
“And at the moment Pakistan’s batting revolves around Babar Azam. So yes if a player like Babar Azam is dismissed for low scores consecutively then there is a sense of concern. But he is a quality player and we will surely get to see him in form during the Super Four stage.”
Jaffer said Pakistan’s top three of Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan and Fakhar Zaman are dangerous players and India would be hoping to get rid of them quickly.
“A player like Babar Azam cannot be kept out of the game for a long time because he is currently ruling across all formats,” he said.
“Pakistan’s top 3 are the most dangerous players on the team and India would surely be hoping to get them down early in the game. Their middle order is a little inexperienced and so India will hope that Babar Azam has a failure again.”
