Babar Azam Eager To Win The T20 & ODI World Cups
Babar while talking to AFP said, “No doubt I am enjoying my form. But with this form my prime goal is to win the two World Cups for Pakistan in the next one-and-a-half years and if that happens I will feel that my runs are worth gold. When I started playing cricket as a schoolboy the target was to play international cricket for Pakistan, become the world’s top batsman in such a manner that it helps my team to win all the titles.
“I was crazy about cricket in my childhood and noticing that passion my father backed me. When I was a kid I used to follow AB de Villiers. I liked the way he used to play the ball on the up. It was delightful for me so I developed that and it helps me get even with the bowlers.
“Nowadays international cricket is so tough and players are so skilled that if you don’t prepare well, you can’t compete. The first and foremost thing is that you have to have belief in yourself and with that mindset I get into the middle and bat with a positive and aggressive intent. I always want to dominate the opponents, and that pays off. When you score runs, not only the world acknowledges and fans are enraptured, it also motivates the whole team and they also aim to contribute.
