Babar Azam, the all-format captain of Pakistan, has established himself as the best batter in the world at the moment that commentators cannot resist bringing up his name during international games, in which he isn’t even participating.
While discussing the renowned “Fab Four,” which includes Virat Kohli, Kane Williamson, Steve Smith, and Joe Root, during the third Test match between England and New Zealand, former Kiwi player Simon Doull heaped massive praise on Babar.
Doull said that the 27-yeat-old is the best player in the world at the moment and called him the ‘big one’.
“Not many could argue that Babar Azam is the best player in the world at the moment. As far as batting in that top order is concerned, he is unbelievable. Joe Root’s got an argument for that too. They talk about the big four at the moment; he’s the big one,” Doull said.
It is pertinent to mention here that Babar is currently the number one ranked batter in both white-ball formats while claiming the fourth spot in Test cricket.

Earlier, former West Indies star Ian Bishop had also heaped praise on Babar, saying that he has “almost overtaken” India great Virat Kohli as a batter in the fifty-over format.
