    This time next year? Why lol. He can get there with the series in Bangladesh.
    Breaking into the top 3 is the medium term goal

    Root is England's only consistent all-format player, along with Stokes. He has a good 5-6 years left in him.

    The top 2 is a different league altogether. It would be even harder for Babar to remain in top 5 for long due to the amount of tests Pakistan plays, the other guys are also very consistent and it is hard to imagine the likes of Kane, Marnus and Warner being static in their positions. Babar needs a big hundred in his next match for sure.

    Babar has to score lots of runs in next test.. because the overseas tests starts next and it’s not going to be easy to break into top 3. Well done to be ranked 5 .. but Labuschagne rise is spectacular already #3

    Azhar fell just short at 787 during his prime. Just wasn't consistent enough.

    Asad's highest is 758. Don't see him breaching that.

    Azhar's form was arguably better than Babar at the time. A double century in Australia and a triple in the same year. Shocking that he couldn't reach 800 points

    This will probably ruffle some feathers, but his Test career so far has been home track bullying.

    Doubt people will take his ranking seriously unless he does something outside Pakistan. Failed even on flat Aussie decks.

    A batting average of 27 in Australia, that's failure.

    Those were the same tracks where Pakistani bowlers recieved phainta of their lives. Like I said, Babar has a lot to prove away from Pakistan. Boosting stats against second string Bangladesh will get him ranking points, but not the respect other elite Test batsmen have earned over the years.

    Babar Azam has a lot to prove


    His next 5 test matches in England and New Zealand will decide his worth. Virat Kohli averaged 40 in Australia in last tour, taylor and Willamson were decimated against this Auatralian attack. Scoring a hundred and 97 was a good start to his away tours overall record

    He averaged 50 in a series where Warner averaged almost 500 and Labuschagne averaged 173.

    Babar indeed has accumulated ranking points, but the way he did it has mostly been about home track bullying against second string Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. Yes that earned points, but not respect. He has a lot to prove in Test format, this ranking won't last if he doesn't improve in a big way.

    Are you new to this game?

    How are you comparing a player who’s playing at home with a player who’s playing in a country where his own side struggles massively?

    What a childish post.

    Babar's Test career so far has been all about bullying second string Bangladesh and Sri Lanka at home.

    His second best performance has been averaging 50 in a series where batsmen from opposition averaged 500, 175 and 100. Most elite batsmen would average twice as much in those conditions. I have nothing to prove here, all cold facts.

    Congrats on his ranking, but it won't last if he doesn't step up his game outside Pakistan.

    Warner averages 34 in WI, 26 in Europe, and 26 in Asia. Everyone tends to bat big at home these days and struggle abroad. Let's just call it like it is.

    Century against NZ in UAE. 90* in Nz vs Nz. A couple of 70s in SA. My favorite innings is his 68* at lords, that was a brilliant inning, unfortunately he got injured. 100 and a 97 in Australia.

    You really need to get your facts checked.

    You can see these are not earth shattering records after playing in international team for 5 years. But he is a good player and has to prove more, and by looks of it will be a top player. Just be patient

    At the end of the day, the ICC rankings are objective and the only method that can factually determine the best player based on the set criteria that includes everything from the SR to the strength of the opposition.

    Given how poor Pakistani batsmen have been in recent times, to be the only batsman in the top 5 in each format is a great achievement by Babar Azam.

    Hope he keeps improving.

    for eg when he reached max rating after Aus 2016 tour then his next 5 series had averages of: 43, 40, 3, 17 and 25

    The batters of other team had to do so against ... hold your breath .... the likes of Yasir Shah, Imran khan and a debutant Naseem shah ON THEIR HOME GROUND. Babar was batting against the likes of Starc, Hazelwood, Cummins etc ON THEIR HOME GROUND ... hope that makes sense.

    Also the rankings take into account most of the opposition and playing conditions so a 50 against Australia in Australia would rank higher than a 50 against BD in Pakistan.

    Babar Azam is improving after every series, we knew he was one of the best player in the world of the off side but after the recent test he was worked really hard to improve his onside. He was playing shots that he didn't posses eariler

    Crazy to see so much improvement and so much more to come

    Crazy to see so much improvement and so much more to come
    He's the only Paksitani batsman in the last 10 years who's targetting greatness, not money or fame. Thus he hasn't become complacent. People praised him from the start because they can feel something's different about him. It was the same for Kohli (although Kohli is perhaps more talented).

    True great players keep trying to improve until they retire.

    I shouldn't respond to a troll.

    But, taking the bait anyway.

    He has done much better than what Kohli used to do on away tours. His struggles in ENG are not hidden from anyone.

    And Babar learned super quickly. His only away failures were in his early career.

    Now dominating all the formats, be it away or home.

    I understand it's hard for you to digest this, as he's doing as good as peak Kohli and much better than what Kohli was at his stage of the career.


    I've had to deal with a lot of people who trash Babar Azam, including the infamous @topspin who would trash Babar at every point. And claim how he's not in the top batsmen.

    I think everyone has learned their lessons. But you probably won't as you're trolling.

    Congrats on his ranking, but it won't last if he doesn't step up his game outside Pakistan.
    Let me tell you all what happened here. He first commented on Babar's Australia record without knowing his 2019 exploits, or somehow it escapes his memory. Then when people starts pointing out his 100 and 97, he became confused and went back to refresh his memory.

    At this point, if Arya had a mature head over his shoulder, he would had apologized and move on. But being a true essence of armchair expert, he could not let go of his ego and accept his wrongs infront of everyone else, so tries to double down on his rambling.

    Before I ask you to find me a post where I said Babar is not a top batsman, can I kindly request to sort out your grammar and use of English overall before you resort to making up your usual rubbish

    Good going by Babar, but I'm more interested in Pakistan doing well and Babar needs support in order for them to do that. We need to start seeing others stepping up and Babar can be the inspiration for that.

    a big hundered in next game and that should place him where he belongs for now... No3 that is ..

    if he can score a game winning 100z in NZ and Eng, will make a serious case for No2 test batsmen after Smithy....

    In ODI he is going head n shoulder with the best in the game....

    pak should look to have a few ODIz at home and get some cracking pitches ...

    we need Abid ali and Babar Azam to lead in all 3 formats...

    Best chance to get into the top 3 is the next test match. Could easily score a hundred in both innings

    very true... a match winning 50 is better than a losing 100....

    He has sloted into Int cricket very comfortably. How did PCB manage this? Very strong temperament and a natural ability.

    You and the other poster should look up the word 'Context'...in a thrtead about rankings, people talking about other stuff (which is def more important) does not make as much sense!

    First of all it's a great achievement considering Pakistani batsmen haven't done so well recently. My thoughts on his rankings are that he is appropriately rated in ODIs but surely is not the best T20 batsman in the world. I think his ranking of 5 in tests is slightly inflated too considering current form vs good opponents but I hope he will actually get even better!

    Babar ko hamari nazar na lagjaye. Long may he continue to dominate batting charts!


    Have the players going forward, just need coaching&professionalism! #1 priority: fielding

    Alhamdulliah finally we have a world class batsmen in all three formats of the game. Babar Azam is a fantastic talent and has just started his career in comparison to Big four. Seeing as he is already on the level of some of these guys, who knows where he can go from here.

    I'm England I reckon Babar will be able to break all charts across the board. He's had experience in 2018, and looked very good in the couple of innings he played there. Was very unfortunate to break his arm to else I think that would have been his breakthrough series. Especially seeing as he racked up nearly 500 runs this world Cup, it's a very promising time.

    However, in NZ I think is the bigger challenges. In England you can get away with a sunny day or a flat deck. In NZ those types of pitches are less common. I think all Pakistani batsmen will have to play out of their skin to muster up a challenge to NZ.

    In conclusion, Babar has a very promising career ahead of him as long as he stays out of dodgy agents, scandals etc
