Inzamam-Ul-Haq says “I believe that his best and his peak is yet to come” in T20 World Cup. Inzamam feels Babar Azam is yet to achieve his peak. He has supported the batter to break several records. Inzamam-Ul-Haq suggests that Babar Azam and Virat Kohli are outstanding batters. Ahead of the India-Pakistan T20 World Cup clash. Kohli and Azam are two of the world’s top white-ball players. Each will lead their respective teams in Dubai. They want to make a good start for their team’s campaigns.
Inzamam highlighted that Babar Azam is yet to reach the leading stage of his career as a player at 30. He went on to support Azam to serve the national group for a long time.
“A batter’s peak starts after he crosses 30, only then he gets to his peak and give his best. Babar has yet to enter his 30s and he has already achieved a lot. I believe that his best and his peak is yet to come and he’ll serve Pakistan for a longer period and name almost every batting record to his credit,” Inzamam-Ul-Haq said.
“The best thing I like about him is his hunger for runs and eagerness to score big every time; I haven’t seen such hunger in any other player. Another positive thing about his style is that Babar is always focused on his game. I see him breaking several cricketing records,” Inzamam-Ul-Haq added.
Lastly, Azam will open the innings, has a massive responsibility of leading Pakistan by example. He along with Mohammad Rizwan has to set the tone at the top. Which will be integral to Pakistan’s success. While Inzamam admitted that the India-Pakistan games involve pressure. He thinks Kohli will feel it more than his counterpart this time around. The 120-Test veteran underlined that Kohli would be significantly under pressure. Due to his batting and the need to win an ICC title.
“Usually both the captains are under pressure in an India-Pakistan World Cup game, but this time Kohli will be under more pressure than Babar. Firstly, he’s leading the favorite side, so naturally, he will be under pressure. Secondly, he has not produced big innings for two years, and then thirdly, this is his last tournament as captain. So, there are many reasons that would keep Kohli under pressure in this match,” Inzamam-Ul-Haq said.
