In the middle overs, his strike rate is very low because this player does not play big shots. Also, good spinners or medium pacers are able to tie them down.

Recently, in a match of Pakistan Super League, commentator Simon Doull had said a similar thing. Actually Babar was close to his century and his strike rate suddenly dropped a lot. Babar was successful in scoring a century but the team lost the match. In The Hundred, perhaps this thing would have also gone against Babar.

Imam had said that Babar Azam could not put pressure on the bowlers like Virat Kohli. Imam had said that despite Babar being set at the crease, the bowlers were not afraid of him. The matter of giving the finishing touch has not come in them yet. It is possible that this thing also went against Babar in The Hundred.

By the way Babar Azam the hundred The major reason for not being sold is also being told that he was not available for all the matches of the league. He had to rest under workload management before the World Cup but the question is if Babar needs rest then what machines are Shaheen and Haris Rauf?
