In its twenty-fifth innings in early 2017 Babar Azam scored his 5th ODI ton against West Indians and was the second fastest man to score 5 ODI tons after Quinton De Kock. After 25 knocks, his total of 1306 rose to the top and surpassed Jonathan Trott’s numbers. For Babar Azam, Life was truly on fast tracks. His three consecutive ODI tons against the Windies in the UAE in 2016 preceded a glorious career.

In the shortest formats, Pakistan was always searching for a consistent number 3. Their international batting stocks have looked so bare like the Old Mother Hubbard cupboard, especially in short formats. Nevertheless, Babar’s arrival on the big scene cannot be called serendipity precisely.

As a 15 year old, it seemed like another raw talent had been released since he was drafted to the Pakistan UniversityUnder-19 team at the 2010 World Cup. In 2012, however, polishing led to an additional drive for the under-19 World Cup. He’s been the skipper this time. Pakistan had eventually been knocked out by India’s champions, but Babar had prepared the races for his side.

Babar grabbed it with hands as big as tentacles in the UAE, the travel post which passed through the domestic system and came his luck in 2016. The Caribbean squad also had a good trial debut and a consistency in the fairytale. But the gains in Australia in late 2016 and in the beginning of 2017 were broken down by faults. Yet Babar is going to make a way out because he wants to emulate Virat Kohli’s success and idolizes ABD.

Babar Azam is the cousin of the Akmal brothers (Kamran, Umar and Adnan) and is commonly regarded as the professional opener. In the three-series, which included Sri Lanka and BangladeshUnder-19 in 2009, he was the world leader. His success at the level of Under-19 persuaded the selectors to provide his national side with the chance to play.

He was called for the Zimbabwe series in Pakistan, where he had a great opportunity to make his home debut. His debut has been fluent in fifty and shows great skill for stroke. Instead, in July, Babar held his place for the Sri Lankan tour where only two ODIs from a cinematic series were played (as of August 2015). Babar also stated that his favorite cricketer is AB de Villiers
