Inzamam-ul-Haq Not Satisfied with The Performance Of Babar Azam And Mohd. Rizwan In Test Match Cricket
While voicing concern over Babar and Rizwan’s performance in the longest version of the game, Inzamam said, “I have seen for a long time that Babar Azam hasn’t scored a hundred. He is the type of player that we like to see regularly score hundreds. He should be doing that because he is at his peak right now. I do not like Babar getting out on 70’s or 80’s. He has to play the big knocks and be the role model for the batsmen in the side. This is very important.
“Rizwan has been performing well and should also be playing big knocks. 20’s and 30’s don’t help you against big sides. I give credit to Fawad Alam who plays big knocks once he gets settled. He takes it to at least three figures which is a very good thing. Other batsmen should also follow suit.

Inzamam Praises Bowlers
While praising the performance of Pakistani bowlers during the Test series in West Indies, Inzamam said, “The tailenders have also been playing well and when we see the series then Pakistan’s bowlers performed really well especially when they were trying to defend a low total. They had aggression and did not give up despite trying to defend a very low total. Pakistan had the match (first Test match) in their hands at one time, but then it went away because of some dropped catches. If you drop catches while defending a low total, it becomes really difficult. Pakistan fielding standard improved greatly in the second Test. Especially Imran took some great catches slip. I have seen someone so good at that position after a long while”.
