Despite being one of the most f...

Babar, the world's number two ranked ODI batsman, has grown in stature with every season. He smashed his 13th ODI ton in only his 76th innings, faster to the mark than any other batsman in the world.

Why Babar Azam is Right!

News has been floating around that Pakistan captain Babar Azam is unhappy with the squads announced for Pakistan's African safari, where they will be touring South Africa and Zimbabwe. Having had a look at the squads, I completely agree with the Pakistan captain. Some of the selection are just bizarre, while some omissions are just mindboggling. I have no idea what Mohammad Wasim & Co. were thinking when selecting these squads.   Test squad:   Babar Azam (capt), Im...
