Pakistan’s head coach Misbahul Haq, in a virtual press conference on Tuesday, lauded the captaincy credentials of skipper Babar Azam while claiming that the prolific batsman would continue to prosper in the leadership role as he gains more experience.

The 46-year-old believed that going through situations gives the captain an idea on how to tackle them in the future.

“When you become the captain of the side, as you gain more experience and go through different situations, your tactics continue to improve accordingly. When you go through these situations again and again, you get an idea of what you need to do in them. You keep learning about these strategies as you play more matches. I think the same applies to Babar,” Misbah said.

The head coach was impressed by Babar’s cricketing sense which could only be applied by a world-class cricketer who understood the opposition’s strategies.

“His overall cricketing sense is remarkable. He has proved himself in every format of the sport. This can only be done by a player or batsman who understands the tactics and strategies of the opposition teams. The same thing applies to captaincy. The only thing is that with time and experience, his tactics will keep on improving. I think the way he is improving and the experience he has, he is doing a tremendous job,” he concluded.
