    Awesome with good average but look at Anwar AVG of 82 and SR of 95 back in 1996 it explains something about someone being a impact player which Babur is not yet.

    Gifted.

    Marvelous batsman.

    Going to be Pakistan's best ever, and top 4 in the world soon.

    Though for me personally, it'd remain Saeed Anwar because of his elegance.

    Even with 4 fielders outside the circle from overs 10 - 50, Misbah could only accomplish a grand strike rate of 75.10 in the 2015 WC. But no, he's our "hero", "saviour", "man of crisis" et al.

    Other teams burden their best players. We on the other hand prefer mediocre players leading our side and expect the team standards to improve. Imagine Indian side captained by Vijay Shankar or Karthik. Your Captain should be the MVP.

    An absolute treat to watch. There is a video ICC uploaded titled cover drives at WC.

    You will see Indian commenters lauding Babar Azam's cover drives and rating it above Kohli's.

    Even Saleem Malik had a better S/R than him, that too in 1987, compared to Babar's S/R in 2019, lol.

    I am just not convinced about him, to be honest. I find him boring to watch, despite his good stats. He just doesn't have that killer instinct with the bat. He probably may have the best ODI record for us, but Javed Miandad will always be our best ever ODI batsman, until and unless he wins a WC.

    He is the most attractive shot maker I have seen from Pakistan since Mohammad Yousuf. And he has been very consistent so far.

    Bangladesh finish 8th and Afghanistan 10th. Srilanka also finished below Pakistan.

    He had a very good World Cup but should have shown more resolve against West Indies, India and Australia - three matches that cost us a place in the semi-final. Even one significant innings in either of these three matches and we would have been in the semi-finals.

    Congratulations to babar!
    I had doubts about babar's ability and mental toughness, but i am proud that babar proved me wrong!
    Babar and haris both had a wonderful tournament with the bat. If haris played all the games, i am sure he would have been on the list too!
    Congratulations to babar and haris, you both are stars!!

    Trouble with babar is he doesnt know how to rotate strike. Likes to look elegant driving and even defending but ones and twose are crucial to keep opposition on back foot. He needs fakhar/sharjeel batting above him & Haris at 4, then ul get the best out of him.

    But Babar did rotate the strike against Bangladesh.
    I was impressed at how hard he was running and there were a lot of instances where he got 3 runs, I still remember when he got angry at Imam for not taking a 2nd run.

    Pleasure to watch live vs Bangladesh. One short arm pull for four was particularly memorable! Class to watch. Consistency in this wc and in his career so far has been impressive.

    Not taking anything away from Babar as he has obviously outscored one of my favorite batsman, Miandad, Congrats, but in the overall scheme of things, his performance looks fairly ordinary.

    According to your theory Afgh=Ind as they were able to draw an international match vs them let alone a warm up match which is irrelevant in any context.

    So you are in a situation where you either have to admit your theory is wrong or you have to try hard to come up with some other factually incorrect statements. Its your decision to make though.

    On a side note I am not even going on to touch the aspect that international aspect has three formats and... thats a story for another time (As you are factually incorrect for any format).

    Its easy to forget just how pathetic the Pakistan batting was up until the 2015 world cup - forget 300, even 250 was a rare score for Pakistan.

    Babar has single handily changed that - not Imam, not Haris, not Fakhar. Babar is the backbone of the Pakistani batting

    Lets hope he stays hungry and goes the Kohli route, not the Umar Akmal way

    Ordinary? In comparison to 28-33 year old players with much more experience?

    Sorry, didn't realize that age was one of the metrics for claiming the honors. If that's the case then he is probably the forerunner for man of the tournament

    I still can't believe Pakistan found such a good batsman. I hope he stays fit and breaks all the records by Pakistani batsman ...

    He is a treat to watch. Saw in another thread he is 3rd in Ranking. He is definitely going in right direction.

    Congratulation Babar.

    The comparison you are trying to make in the top scorer list isnt that straightforward along with everything else kept constant. A 33 year old performing in the same way might not be rated as highly for the future as there is a little roam for him to improve.

    You are comparing him with with the players with more than 150 ODI matches. Good players get better with experience.

    Just to give some more insight Babar has outperformed everyone above him when they were 24 years of age. That doesnt mean Babar will leave everyone behind but just shows with such little experience and at an age with isnt considered the peak of a batsman, this performance cant be said ordinary by any means.

    He is not so dumb that he doesn't know about working on power game. But one thing I would like to mention that he is a Williamson kind of player who like to bat throughout the inning. Players like Kohli, Williamson, Smit and Root have leverage to bat through without taking risks as they some world class finishers in late middle order.

    However, the case is totally opposite in Pakistan team. Once Babar and Imam gets out, wickets start falling untill Imad comes.

    You are right
    But he was also instrumental is our wins against Eng, Nz, Ban, SA, Afg by scoring 66, 100, 96, 70, 45 respectively ( He was 1st/2nd highest runs scorer in all these matches )

    I hope with more experience he will become more consistent and match Winner

    Needs to prove a lot in tests. Miandad averaged 50+ and made 23 centuries though I am hopeful Babar will surely improve.

    Needs to improve against spinners and his strike rotation. He is comfortably our best bat. But doesnt seems to be a leadership material so should stay clear from any captaincy burden.

    A good tournament for him but nothing exceptional. He needs to be dominant over a course of next few years to hit the league of Rohit and Kohli or else will have to satisfy the level of Joe Root or Kane Williamson, which actually what his level is in LOs format.
