South African veteran all-rounder, Shaun Pollock, Friday remarked that Babar Azam will improve as the time passes.

Pollock said the way Babar bats, especially his technique has been impressive.

“His demeanor when he goes to the crease, he seems so relaxed and it seems that he has got his game plan sorted out. He is not a very old individual so he is going to get better as the years go on. The technique that he has got, I have been really impressed. I mean, I see I hear that if a youngster is looking to copy a technique, you can’t go far from Babar Azam,” Pollock said in Pakistan Cricket Board’s podcast.

Babar has been in top touch recently. He scored a couple of brilliant knocks in the recently-concluded ODI series against South Africa, earning praise from some of the best.

Pollock says Babar’s has been successful in all types of conditions and pitches because of his good technique.

“He gets into a relaxed position and he gives himself the best chances to be effective in all conditions, whether it’s slower or bouncier, fast or seaming; he has got such a good technique that he is going to stand the test of time. You just got to go and look at his figures. Sometimes you don’t understand a player and how good he is until you see him first hand and I have been impressed,” he concluded.

The Pakistan captain is being counted among the best batsmen of current times as the right-handed batsman has been scoring consistently in all the three formats.
