    How to turn Babar Azam into a match winner?

    Babar Azam is currently not a match winner. He helps his team but he also hurts his team as well. How would you turn him into a match winner?

    He is, without a doubt, a match winner.

    In T20 cricket, you have to accept him for what he is. A Steady Eddy.

    In ODI's, he isn't a match winner but is still our best bat by some distance.

    In test cricket, he has just found his feet and probably needs a bit more time.

    He's already a match-winner, given that he averages 50+ with a SR of 85. Anyone who thinks otherwise either has an agenda or a skewed understanding of this sport.

    Just need to learn how to finish matches. He is just 24 and he will learn will time. The beasts you see Kohli, Williamson etc developed with time. Basic ingredients are there, just needs to remain putting in hardwork and work on his power game and mental side of the game.

    Mickey should sit him down and tell him to hit more sixes.

    And he should preferably cut his average by half and double his strike rate.

    Easy

    It's more of a mental thing. What has body building got to do with it. He has a body of a decent athlete.

    This wasnt entirely Babar's fault.
    He did take 4 amazing catches too and the horrific batting collapse was the real crime.
    On a pitch like this with that amazing start they shouldnt have barely touched 160 only.Some good bowling by Umer gave them a chance but this was Islamabad's game to lose especially with the batting depth they have.

    Honestly speaking, just support him as a team. It's a team game. Kohli is a champion because he gets support from his top orders and bowlers. You just can't win match alone anymore. Gayle recently did very well against England, but England still equalled ODI series and won 2020 series. Kohli batted like it was his last match during 4th odi against Aus., but having no support from lower order ruined the game.

    I think Babar only way is up, improving each game I guess.

    That was expected that he'll go for runs. 7.3 overs for 71 runs by two main bowlers with one bonus fluke wicket at the end.

    Best Pakistan batsman by a mile, we need to find five other players capable of winning matches and not worry about the one world class batsman Pakistan possess.

    I think he needs players around him to attack. Once Livingstone got out the run rate decreased. Ingram should have come in and picked it up.

    He's too soft. You got to have an almost bully-like personality to be a match winner. Softies can only go so far in cricket.

    Babar has the skill and the temperament, it's the lack of ruthlessness and arrogance that is holding him back.

    What does averaging 50+ and having a SR of 85 have to do with being a match-winner?

    Kohli isn't God-like in ODI WCs, hasn't done particularly well in the group matches and has failed spectacularly in the knockouts. Stokes hasn't even played 5 matches in WCs I believe

    But India lost the ODI seris against Australia. How can Kohli be a match winner? Remember, Inzamam was a true match winner who played for his team rather than his own records.


    If there is a better batsman than Sachin then he hasnít arrived yet: Viv Richards

    90% of his problems will be solved if he develops his power game. He can score runs with consistency but he just cannot accelerate when it is needed which is a must-have skill for any match-winner batsman.
