Babar Azam Can Conquer the World: Nathan Lyon
Following an impressive display in the second innings of the first Test match against Australia, Babar Azam has impressed many of the Australians including the off-spinner Nathan Lyon.
Babar Azam had the pressure on his shoulders in the second innings after being dismissed in the first for playing an expansive cover drive early on in his innings.
Walking at the crease at 25-3, Babar had everything to lose. Australians, once again, bowled wide of off-stump and tried to lure him to play a false shot once again but he showed great signs of maturity and held strong.
Babar toned down his aggression and took responsibility to take Pakistan out of trouble, which led him to complete his 2nd Test century.
Lyon has been an experienced campaigner in the Australian side, featuring in 90 Test matches. His appreciation for Babar Azam is a positive sign that Babar is finally grooming himself to become an effective Test cricketer as well.
