Pakistan's young batsman Babar Azam is counted among the youngest talented batsmen in the world. But many cricket experts consider him hasty to be considered in the Fab Four category of the world. However, former England captain Nasser Hussain says that there is no doubt that Azam is the batsman of the same category. He says that it is now Fab 5 and Kohli must join it.
Azam scored an unbeaten 69 off 100 balls on the first day of the Manchester Test against England. He also hit 11 fours in his innings.
Nasir Hussain said that Babar Azam will not get that name and fame as he is not Indian captain Virat Kohli. Cricketer-turned-commentator Hussain said that the world keeps talking about the Fab Four – Virat Kohli, Kane Williamson, Joe Root and Steve Smith – but now It has come that there should be talk of Fab 5 and Babar Azam should also be included in this.

Hussain said, 'If this boy was Virat Kohli, everybody would be talking about it but since it is Babar Azam, no one is talking about it. He is young, Allegiant and has his own swag. '
Pakistan Test captain Azhar Ali also made a similar statement before the start of the series. He had said that his deputies (Babar is the vice-captain of the Test team) are batsmen of the same category as Virat Kohli and Steve Smith. Azhar Ali had said that Babur had worked hard to become a Test batsman.
