(Video) Babar Azam’s handsome cover-driving will make your day

Babar Azam’s sublime cover drives are a purist’s delight. He doesn’t lean excessively into the half-volley but the compact prod forward does the job wonderfully well as he sends the cherry cannoning into the advertising hoardings. Babar’s class was there for the world to see in bold and capital in the 2019 Cricket World Cup as he uncorked a catalogue of mesmerizing shots through the off-side against Australia’s vaunted pace attack. Sit back and enjoy the exploits of a master artisan.
