Wasim believes that there's plenty more to come from the bat of the 27-year-old as he has not touched his peak yet
Former Pakistan captain Wasim Akram has highly praised current national team skipper Babar Azam and thinks that the 21st century belongs to him.
Babar is currently the only batter among the top 10 of the ICC Rankings across three formats. Wasim believes that there's plenty more to come from the bat of the 27-year-old as he has not touched his peak yet.
"He came through the proper ranks, I have worked with him in Karachi Kings as well from last three years. I love his work ethic, he is focused and he’s never satisfied with his performance and that’s a sign of a good leader. I knew at the time, with this boy, with his work ethic, with his talent, he will definitely perform and be consistent," Wasim told Sport 360.
Wasim rated Babar among the best going around in world cricket and compared with the class of previous Pakistan batting greats.
"And now he’s the part of Fab four. [Virat] Kohli, [David] Warner, [Joe] Root and Babar is now getting high on top. Kohli is up there with Babar," he added.
"You see if you talk about Pakistan batting, you start with Zaheer Abbas, Javed Miandad, Saleem Malik, Inzamam-Ul-Haq, Younis Khan, Mohammad Yousaf and then now it’s Babar Azam. The 21st century belongs to Babar Azam, he’s the man. And he’s still got plenty in him," he added.
