Babar Azam, a world-class batsman who does the heavy lifting for Pakistan, celebrates his birthday today. The cherry leaves his bat like a tracer bullet thanks to imperious timing and hand-eye coordination. His authoritative cover drive is a treat for the sore eye. Wishes poured in for Babar as he turned 27, with the International Cricket Council posting the highlights package of his masterful ton against New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup. The prodigiously talented run-machine has accrued 8551 runs across formats including 20 centuries in 179 international matches.
