Despite the abundance of talented batters at the 2022 T20 World Championship, Babar Azam is one batter whose performance will be closely watched. The skipper of the Pakistan cricket team has gone from strength to strength over the past year. One of the highest-ranking batters in all formats, Pakistani cricket fans are pinning their hopes on the star-batter leading them to a world title at the T20 World Cup in Australia. In front of the marquee, Babar, who celebrated his 28th birthday on October 15, met with Indian legend Sunil Gavaskar. The two talked about cricket and Gavaskar also had a special gift for Babar.

Babar Azam-led Pakistan cricket team will start their T20 World Cup campaign against Rohit Sharma-led India on October 23 in Melbourne. Gavaskar said India’s punching power allows Rohit to capitalize on his chances against rivals.

“If you have a long batting lineup, that’s how you should play. Yeah we want him to bat longer, we want him to bat 10-12 overs because then you’re pretty sure. Because in those 10-12 overs, India is 120-odd with the way he hits. But because he’s bringing India to flying starts and because he’s got 5,6,7 who can take the game away. Watch today how Hardik Pandya came out towards the end. You can take risks with that kind of batting order,” Sunil Gavaskar said on Star Sports.

“Obviously getting the captain of a team is always a big plus for the opponent. It’s like getting the snake’s head, they say. That’s why, if you’re an opening batsman, bowlers will target you – the captain. Get to demoralize the crew. But this team has so many quality players.”
