Pakistan all-rounder cricketer Mohammad Hafeez has said that if he would be given the option of chosing his opening partner from Pakistan he would gladly pick Babar Azam.
Mohammad Hafeez said this while speaking on a YouTube channel. He also praised the talent of Babar Azam and said that he makes life of non striker easy with the way he bats in the middle.
“There are many brilliant cricketers playing around the world. As an entertainer and as a player, I’m a fan of many players,” said Hafeez.
“If I was picking one from Pakistan, it would be Azam. The ease with which he bats, through his good technique, it makes things comfortable for the batsman at the other end.”
The veteran all-rounder further said that India’s Rohit Sharma and David Warner of Australia could also make good opening partners.
“Globally, it’s difficult to answer that question because there are many great names,” he said.
“I would pick Sharma and Warner as the two players I would like to open the innings with.”
