Babar is a world-class player: Rashid Khan


Afghanistan’s leg-spinner Rashid Khan believes Pakistani Skipper Babar Azam was a world-class player saying he watches videos of players before the match to find out their weaknesses.

Rashid who represents Lahore Qalandars’ in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) has shed light on three of the world’s top batsmen, Babar, Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson.

Rashid, who has made an impressive start to the Abu Dhabi-leg of HBL PSL season six, praised the batting process of the trio. He also opened up on bowling to Babar in the upcoming match against Karachi Kings.

“Babar is a world-class player but I always assess my strengths first and bowl accordingly.

I watch videos of players before the match to find out their weaknesses and utilise that during the match. I will try to bowl at a good line and length, keep things simple and enjoy the match,” quoted him as saying.

“In my opinion it’s quite difficult to say who the best is but no doubt, Virat Kohli, Kane Williamson and Babar Azam are world-class players. These are the kind of players who know their limits and shots.

They have a process to start and finish their innings, which is something I really like about them,” he said.

When asked about comparison between Indian Premier League and HBL PSL, he said, “I have only played three of four matches in PSL as compared to IPL where I have been playing for five years.—APP
