Inzamam-ul-Haq wants Babar Azam to score big and set an example for other batsmen

The Pakistan captain has gone 15 Test innings without a ton

Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq reckons that the current captain Babar Azam should play big innings and set an example for other batsmen. Since scoring 143 against Bangladesh in Karachi in February 2020, Babar has gone on to play 15 Test innings, wherein he has managed five fifties.  Inzamam believes just getting fifties is not enough, Babar has to contribute more. 

“He is a cricketer who we would like to see regularly scoring runs and centuries,” the former skipper expressed this opinion on his YouTube channel.

“He should not lose his wicket after scoring 70, 80 runs. Babar has to play big innings and he should be an example for the other batsmen,” he said.

“[Mohammad] Rizwan has been performing well and should also be playing big knocks. 20s and 30s don’t help you against big sides. I give credit to Fawad Alam who plays big knocks once he gets settled. He takes it to at least three figures which is a very good thing. Other batsmen should also follow suit,” Inzamam went on to say.

Pakistan recently went on to complete an impressive victory over West Indies in the second Test in Jamaica to level the two-match series 1-1. With the 109-run win, Pakistan got off the mark in the World Test Championship 2021-23 cycle.
