Babar thinks Afridi is the best in the world. In the eyes of Pakistan captain Babar Azam, Afridi is the best bowler in the world right now. Afridi has been named the best bowler in world cricket since making his international debut in 2016.
He is in the top ten bowlers in the ICC rankings for all three formats of cricket. That is why Babar did not hesitate to call Afridi the best bowler in the world right now.
“The way he is playing and performing, he will go a long way,” said Babur, the ICC’s best batsman in ODIs and T20s. To me, Afridi is now the number one bowler.
Afridi is a threat to the opposing batsmen in all three formats. He is good at swinging and bouncing on both sides of the wicket. Babar says he is lucky to have such a talented and hardworking bowler like Afridi.
“A bowler like him has the potential to rise to the top of the rankings,” he said. He is a very hardworking and talented bowler. I am lucky to have such a bowler as a captain. ‘
Afridi, 22, has taken 95 wickets in 24 Tests, 59 in 30 ODIs and 48 in 40 T20s for Pakistan so far.
In addition to praising Afridi, Babar also spoke about the recently concluded series against Australia at home. “There were a lot of spectators on the field throughout the series,” he said. It is always positive to watch big stars play on the soil of the country. This series (Australia) will play an important role in bringing other teams to Pakistan.
Despite losing the Tests and T20s to Australia, Pakistan still won the ODI series.
