Who is the number one bowler according to Babar Azam?

The captain of the Pakistan Cricket Team, Babar Azam has revealed the world’s number one bowler according to him. He believes Pakistani pacer, Shaheen Shah Afridi is unrivalled in the modern cricket era.

Azam, while naming Afridi as the world’s number one bowler, said that he can go far with his performance and can be listed in the top 10 bowlers across all formats. The skipper further reckoned the pacer will achieve the top spot in ICC rankings soon.

Talking to media in Lahore, he stated,

“Shaheen works hard in all formats all the time, and as a skipper, I also pray that Shaheen goes further. He is the number one bowler for me, and he will also claim the number one spot in the rankings.”

Azam also talked about the historic Australia tour of Pakistan. Like others, he is glad the world’s big teams will now visit Pakistan at regular intervals. He said the visitors performed well throughout the series and enjoyed their time on and off the field.

“It’s a wonderful thing that other teams will now visit Pakistan. In the series against Australia, there was excellent cricket in all three formats. It was the fact that the Australian squad performed brilliantly in Pakistan. They enjoyed cricket and continued to do so off the field.”

A day back, South Africa’s bowling great, Dale Steyn named Babar as the best player in all three formats. A fan asked,

Who’s the best batsman across all formats currently in your opinion?

Steyn answered,

Maybe Babar? He’s pretty darn good.
