Pakistan’s journey in the latest edition of the World Cup has been terrific. Led by Babar Azam, the men in green were astounding throughout but faded a step before the victory. Becoming the only team to win all Super 12 stage games, Pakistan lost the semi-final clash versus Australia, however, Babar is now looking to win the next two World Cups in 18 months as his ‘prime goal’.
The 27-year old says it has been his ambition since green age to win every title for Pakistan. He feels he needs to improve his finishing skills as a batter and is confident to once again lead the team from the front in extravaganzas. It is to note that the T20 World Cup 2022 is scheduled to take place later this year in Australia whereas, India will embrace the ODI World Cup next year.
He says although he is doing wonders with the bat but will accept his runs as’ worth it’ only if they will help out in winning both World Cups within the next two years. As quoted by India Today, Azam stated,
“No doubt I am enjoying my form. But with this form, my prime goal is to win the two World Cups for Pakistan in the next one-and-a-half years and if that happens I will feel that my runs are worth gold,”
Babar is currently the ranked number one batter in both; ODI and T20Is. He reveals that being number one across the formats is his dream come true. But he has always wanted this dream in a way that it helps Pakistan to win titles.
The Pakistani skipper averages near 60 in ODIs with 17 centuries and 19 half-centuries in 87 innings. During the recent Pak vs WI ODI series, he has achieved many feats, and broken existing ones too. In the shortest edition of the game, he has 2686 runs whereas, he enjoys Test runs in 74 and 40 matches respectively.
As far as Pakistan’s journey in the World Cups is concerned, they last won the T20 World Cup against Sri Lanka in 2009, whereas the 1992 World Cup under Imran Khan was the last ODI edition they won.
