I think Australia is the perfect opportunity for him to do that. A Pakistani who scores runs in Australia is always regarded very highly.
    Need to get out there early. That is unlikely given it is only a 2 test series☹️

    Wasim Khan has said that the team, or at least the batsmen, will be sent to train at Perth 4 weeks prior to the series. That is plenty of time for them to get used to conditions.

    Babar Azam smashed a hundred by hitting a six on the last ball. He was in the 70s in the 18th over and reached his century in the 20th over. Just amazing how he is learning and evolving.

    Somerset’s prolific opening partnership of Babar Azam and Tom Banton currently occupy two of the top three spots in the PCA’s Vitality Blast Most Valuable Player Rankings.

    The duo, also the top two run-scorers in this year’s Blast, have piled on runs for the Taunton-based side whilst simultaneously piling pressure on the leader of the format-specific MVP Ranking, Durham’s D’Arcy Short.

    It was a tale of two centuries for the pair this week, with the first coming for Pakistan international Azam against Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl on Friday.

    The wind and rain eventually limited the fixture to 32.1 overs in total, but Azam swept the gloom aside with a sparkling 102 not out from just 55 balls, including seven fours and six maximums. Ably aided by skipper Tom Abell (57 from 36), Azam’s innings accounted for over 50% of his side’s 202-4, helping the 24-year-old to 41.25 MVP points and his side to a 63-run victory via DLS.

    Although Banton only managed one in that game, he was not to be outdone by his esteemed colleague, all but matching Azam’s feat just a day later.

    The 20-year-old confirmed his reputation as the most exciting young player in T20 cricket by taking centre stage in Somerset’s big victory over high-flying Kent Spitfires. With Azam run out for nine early on, Banton revelled in the extra pressure to post a sublime 100 from just 52 balls – his maiden T20 ton – and claim the MVP award for the game, along with most of the plaudits.

    Despite having earned nine extra MVP fielding points over his colleague, wicketkeeper Banton sits four points behind Azam in the Blast MVP, with the pair currently occupying third and second position respectively.

    Babar Azam has taken the 2019 Vitality Blast by storm.

    The Pakistan batsman has scored 434 runs at an average of 62 with a strike rate of 152.82.

    We sat down with him at the Cooper Associates County Ground earlier this week to discuss his 2019.

    How would you describe you year so far?

    “Definitely so far, so good! I’ve spent quite a bit of time in England with Pakistan and now Somerset. I’ve really enjoyed it so far and have become accustomed to the conditions now. I was really pleased with how my World Cup went, and that has given me a lot of confidence moving forward.

    “It was my first World Cup and although it was a big challenge, it was something I really enjoyed. The atmosphere at all the Pakistan games was amazing and so many people turned up to cheer us on. We were all very grateful to the fans for their support.”

    What is it like playing for Somerset?

    “I quickly found out about the fantastic history of Somerset and was very happy to come and play here. There are lovely people supporting us here in Taunton and everyone has been very welcoming to me, which I would like to thank everybody for. The support staff and coaches have also helped me a lot in my time so far. I will try my very best to perform in every match for the people of Somerset and so far I’m pleased with my performances.”

    Tell us about your cricketing journey.

    “I didn’t start playing cricket until I was about 12 years old, where I began my career at Club level. Although I started quite late, I fell in love with the game and played a lot in the streets before my parents helped me find a club.

    “I went from U15 level through to U23 level before playing for Pakistan A. I was very happy that after one further year, I was called into the Pakistan team. Making my ODI debut in my home town of Lahore was a special feeling. I felt very honoured to make my debut there against Zimbabwe and was really happy to get a half-century.”

    How do you see your game in red-ball cricket?

    “I definitely feel like there is more to come from me in First Class and Test cricket. I have done okay in the white-ball game recently, but I really want to prove myself in Test cricket, so I will be doing my best to achieve my goals in this format.

    “I’m really looking forward to playing a Specsavers County Championship match for Somerset at Edgbaston. Hopefully I can score a few runs and help Somerset win the match. I know the Club are close to winning that first title, so fingers crossed I can play a small part in this.”

    What are your career goals?

    “I really want to aim as high as I can throughout the rest of my career, and perform to the best of my ability for Pakistan over a long period of time. I love playing cricket. I want to enjoy my career and play with a smile on my face.”

    Batting well at the moment. He is out if the t20 mindset and into the red ball one. It seems like he enjoys batting with Tom Banton.

    Azhar is back in Pakistan and his stint is over.

    Babar will be there probably for the next two T20 Blast games, then leave.

    Gone for 63 was a very poor innings after the powerplay I watched the whole innings he could only get one boundary after the powerplay for 5 overs and than he got the pace bowler and hit him for two fours and than perished to slow bowling again. These are very average bowlers to be honest and he has to do a lot better than this in the t20 World Cup

    After the power play the bowlers took the pace off and scoring slowed down.The pitch was hybrid grass pitch i.e. synthetic fibres are stiched into the pitch.I don't know if this type of pitch is easy to bat on or not.

    Compared to the other batsmen it seems like a pretty good performance. He carried the team once again. He's not a power hitter, you cant expect him to score at a 180 strike rate every game. He's one of the main reasons Somerset is in the top 4. If SOmerset reach the Quarter Finals, Babar won't be playing and I don't see them going to the final as the only other decent bat in their team is Tom Banton, and even though he has scored runs at a decent strike rate, he did have a match losing 50 against Sussex where he scored 51 at 113 strike rate. In that game Babar scored 86 at 164.
