Pakistan captain Babar Azam is eyeing to claim the top spot in ICC Test rankings for batters and to achieve this, he is working hard behind the scenes.
The 27-year-old currently holds the top spot in ODI and T20Is, however, he sits at the fourth spot in the red-ball format behind former England captain Joe Root and the Australian duo of Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith.
"Gaining top position and making Pakistan proud is such a great feeling. I will try my best to continue performing for my country," Babar said in a presser on Monday.
Babar Azam will be in action from July 16 as he will be leading Pakistan in Sri Lanka for two-match Test series. Babar is looking to score big runs against Sri Lanka and move upwards in the rankings.
"I am working really hard to make my performance equal to white-ball format," optimistic Babar said.
