Former Indian cricketer Mohammad Kaif discussed Pakistani captain Babar Azam’s striking prowess after the 29-year-old was dismissed against Bangladesh in the 31st game of the ICC World Cup 2023 in Kolkata, after making nine runs.

Given that Babar needed to make a big shot in order to chase the mark in 30 overs, Kaif stated he would not evaluate Babar based on his performance against Bangladesh.

“I will not judge him based on this knock because he ran after the run rate. He had to finish the game early. So that big shot came. But overall his form is not good. He is scoring fifties and sixties but the hundred hasn’t come,” Kaif said.

The former Indian batter continued by discussing Babar’s ability to quicken the pace of the innings and asserting that the Pakistani player lacks the same capacity to do so as Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.

“The dismissal shows that when he changes gears, it is not his game. When he tries to hit balls out of the boundary, he gets caught on the line. It is not his strength, he is a touch player. If you ask him to score runs at a fast pace after 60 balls, he probably does not have the ability that Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have,” added.

In the encounter with Bangladesh, Pakistan made the comeback as they won by 7 wickets. The left-arm batter Fakhar Zaman scored 81 from 74 and Abdullah scored 68 from 69 balls.
