    He has a very compact technique. Brings the bat close to hit body when hitting in the V. Very un-Akmal

    A mini victory by Babar. Hopefully it will give him confidence for the future SENA tours.

    Personally, I already expected a 0-3 phainta and my only interest in this series was how Amir and Babar performed.

    (I don't think Abbas has been 100% fit)

    No, Babar is not playing to survive, him along with Shan, are the only two Pakistani batsmen who have looked confident and assured at the crease in this series.

    Yes he is past his best but definitely not by a long margin, he's still getting the ball to move and he's still bowling at an average of 87mph, which is lightening quick if compared to the modern test seamers.

    Babar's shot selection and batting intelligence are way superior to Umar's, though.

    As I said before, Babar is a remarkable talent, with good technique and I hope a high work ethic. He is the best t20 batsman n the planet, one of the top 5 ODI batsmen and now, slowly, turning into a top 10 test batsman, all before the age of 25.

    The best batting talent Pakistan have had since a young Inzy. As long as he has the grit of Younis Khan, he may turn into the best ever.

    Yes. Compared to current Umar.

    But Umar would have offered us way more than all our batsmen in SA except Babar.

    After bahar hits out and scores, he should then settle down and go for a big innings. You have already hit a good bowler out of the attack but going wild throughout wont let you make big scores. Have seen many great innings in tests where batsmen started by counter attacking and then settled down to play long innings instead of just continuing. Bahar should think about this

    This is the exact reason why Pakistan is good in T20 and not good in test. Fans and management are happy with flash in the pan performance. Yes Babar took steyn to the cleaners but he has not converted those starts to go on and get big scores. Would you rather him hit Steyn at SR of 110 or him go on and score 170? Babar scoring 170 would help his team more than him taking on Steyn.

    It is also same with bowlers too, they bowl few gem of overs after long spells of mediocre performance. They need a coach who expects consistent performance from the team.

    He had a brainfade today no doubt but in the previous 2 occasions he was batting with the tail and just trying to get as much runs as possible. Even then he didn't get out slogging, rather defending.

    In the UAE he has shown the willingness to dig in and play long.

    Steyn was not all about pace, his speciality was his amazing ability to swing the ball both ways at such lightening pace. After recurrent injury and long lay off he seems to have lost the ability to swing comprehensively.Pace is not everything friend.

    He's following the same template that AB used to score a winning knock against India, its not a bad tactic on these decks and based on his position in the order.

    Never had any doubts about his shot making ability & I can bet for India, he would have opened in ODI for sure. His next step, which is much tougher task is to convert this nice 50s & 70s into 100, may be 200. I donít think hitting boundaries is only sign of domination, rather a master batsman needs to dominate for hours, sessions & take the game away. Still brilliant stroke play & Think Tank needs to back him - first step is to promote him at 4 in Test & opening in LOs.

    Did you even bother to watch steyn bowling for alteast 3 overs minus babar? .he still bowls good outswinger with odd one nip back of the seam .i don.t think he is that bad still 80 % of old steyn left in him

    You are right but for that, he needs to be placed up the order. Only yesterday he played a bad shot at 49. Before that in all innings he was batting with the tail.

    Babar is a great talent. Anyone who knows something about batting could see years back. And him finding his feet in Test cricket was just a matter of time. I remember telling @babajee so many times in his threads to not worry about Babarís future at all.

    But I request Pak fans to not overhype things and make him more self centered. He needs to take up more responsibility and bat responsibly for the team. Thatís what best batsmen do for their teams. With this current criterion, you guys are actually saying that Markram is better than Babar, because he actually performed better and he always faced the new ball against bowlers having a fresh start. Would you agree? I donít think heís as good as Babar at the moment.
