Pakistan’s cricket captain in all formats, Babar Azam, has attributed his success in world cricket to his diligent practice routine. In a recent interview, the right-handed batter revealed that he plays 500-600 balls daily, and even more when he’s out of form.
“I think when you practice hard, only then you can perform in the match. I believe practice is so important for anyone who wants to perform on the ground,” said Babar, who is widely regarded as one of the best batters in the current era.
His dedication to practice has clearly paid off, as he was recently named the ICC Cricketer of the Year for his outstanding performance in 2022.
Babar acknowledged that addressing faults in batting takes time, and that criticism is always present, regardless of whether one performs well or not. He faces scrutiny for his batting strike rate but believes that constant practice is the key to improvement.
Babar’s father, Azam Siddique, has been instrumental in his son’s success from his childhood cricket days to becoming the captain of the national team. Babar credits his father for always pushing him to be better, and even though he rarely praises his performance, Babar finds his guidance invaluable.
The Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 8 is currently underway, and Babar is the second-highest run-scorer in the tournament with 416 runs in nine matches, including his first PSL century.
