Manchester

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.

Babur got support with Masood

  • Babur got support with Masood

    Babar was well supported by opener Shaan Masood, who scored an unbeaten 46 off 152 balls with the help of seven fours. Both have so far shared an unbroken 96-run partnership for the third wicket. Due to rain, only 49 overs were played in the day. Due to rain, tea had to be taken soon and after that 7.5 overs could be played. About 15 overs were yet to be bowled when the day's play was declared due to poor lighting.

  • Rain eye michauli

    For England, Joffra Archer and Chris Woakes took one wicket each. Babar survived Vox's first ball but he batted well after that. Players had to return for 10 minutes in the first session due to rain for the first time while strong showers started soon before 3 pm local time and tea was to be taken soon. The game resumed after that but soon the day's play had to be ended due to poor lighting.

  • Abid and Masood's slow start

    Archer and Vox gave Pakistan the initial setbacks. Masood and Abid Ali (16) gave a cautious start amidst the cloudy sky, keeping the hosts' bowlers from success in the first hour. The new-ball pair of James Anderson and Stuart Broad had both batsmen several times but managed to score 36 runs without losing the wicket.

  • Archer made Abid bold

    Joe Root instead of Anderson and Broad decided to field Archer and Vox and both did not disappoint their captain. Archer bowled Abid Ali on the seventh ball of his match and gave England the first success. Abid must have been frustrated because the rain had to stop the game for three minutes after his dismissal.

  • This is how Abid's bones are
  • Ali returned without opening account

    Within 10 minutes of the match being resumed, Vox trapped captain Azhar Ali. He could not even open an account. Azhar resorted to DRS but the decision went in favor of the bowler. Star batsman Babar Azam had to face a lot of trouble in the initial. He opened the account on the 15th ball but batted brilliantly when he came in rhythm.

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.
