Babar Azam was not in the right rhythm in the last Asia Cup. The Pakistan captain’s bat did not smile at all. In Pakistan cricket, there was a storm of criticism about his batting. However, this batter did not take much time to get back into the rhythm. In the England series at home, Babar shined again.

Babar has played 86 matches in Pakistan’s shortest version so far. He scored 3035 runs from that. The batting average is also eye-catching. It’s around 44. Batting at a strike rate of 130.09, Babar scored 2 centuries in T20. In addition, his bat has seen a total of 27 half-centuries.

Meanwhile, Babar is now the fifth batsman in the world to score 3000 T20 runs. He also holds the record (jointly with Virat Kohli) for the fastest (81 innings) to reach this milestone. Earlier this milestone was reached by Rohit Sharma (3694), Virat Kohli (3663), Martin Guptill (3497), and Paul Sterling (3011).

After the England series, Pakistan will play a tri-nation series in New Zealand.

However, Babar responded to the criticism by returning to the run against England. Let’s see if Babar can maintain this form in the tri-nation series and World Cup.

Mustafiz in the list of best slower bowlers

স্লোয়ার বলে সেরাদের তালিকায় মুস্তাফিজ

Mustafizur Rahman has spread light with the ball since his arrival in international cricket. Bangladeshi pacer is unparallel to create trouble for the batsman with cutter slower. This time, he got a place in the list of the best slower bowlers in T20 by ESPNcricinfo, a cricket-based website.

Mustafiz regularly bowls at a speed of 140 km per hour. However, he is also very good at swinging with a twist of the wrist. At the same time, Mustafiz fooled the batsmen with ‘slower’ at the crucial moment.

Meanwhile, since Mustafiz is a left-handed bowler, the batsmen have to be in trouble to play his cutter. Because it is difficult to understand which one is an off-cutter and which one is a leg cutter. Again, these cutters also go up along the shoulder like the cutters of the pacers. That’s why Mustafiz got a place in the list of best slower bowlers.

Besides, England pacer Tymal Mills, Australia’s Nathan Ellis, former West Indies pacer Dwayne Bravo, and another English pacer Jofra Archer have got a place on this list.

However, Fizz’s current time with the ball is not going well. That Fizz of the beginning has lost himself. Bangladesh team director Khaled Mahmud Sujan has said that Mustafiz is no longer an auto choice. There are also rumors against Fizz for not working hard enough in practice.

But even after that, Tiger Mustafiz is the only pacer who got a place in the list of best slower balls from Asian teams. There is no place for any pacer from teams like Pakistan, or India. However, the cutter master has not opened up about the matter yet.

Bangladesh will play the tri-nation series in New Zealand soon. There are also rumors that Mustafiz’s cutter does not work well outside Asia. The tri-nation series is going to be an acid test for Fizz.

Rizwan is Pakistan's run machine

But there is always one exception, Mohammad Rizwan of the top order. He is a threat to the opponent with the bat in almost every match.

Rizwan’s bat has also laughed in this year’s Asia Cup. This wicket-keeper batsman has provided service to the team from the beginning to the tournament’s final. Apart from being the tournament’s top run-scorer, Rizwan topped the ICC T20 rankings for the first time. After that, he is even more irresistible.

But in the fourth innings, he returned to his familiar form. He played an innings of 88 runs off 67 balls. Pakistan won the fifth series match on Wednesday with the bat of Rizwan (63 off 46 balls).

A new day, a new match and as if the Indian batsman is touching the bat as an opportunity to surpass himself. Before taking the field against South Africa, he got the good news of improvement in the ranking and set a new record on the field in the Indian jersey.

Suryakumar left the field with an unbeaten 50 runs off 33 balls in the first T20 against the Proteas, ensuring the team’s victory. And in that he made a personal record. Suryakumar now owns the most runs for India in T20Is in a calendar year, overtaking Shekhar Dhawan.

So far, this record was held by Dhawan who scored 689 runs in 2018 calendar year. This record was snatched by his teammate Suryakumar.

Suryakumar has played 20 matches so far in 2022. He scored 732 runs with the bat at an average of 40.66. Batting at a strike rate of 180.29 seems to explain his recent form.

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli, who scored 641 runs in 2016, is number three among the Indians who have scored the most runs in a calendar year in T20. Apart from this, current captain Rohit Sharma is in the fourth place with 590 runs in 2018.

Narine praises Rohit fiercely

Narine praises Rohit fiercely

Andre Russell, Sunil Narine are the peddlers of T20 in world cricket. They play in T20 franchise leagues of different countries to meet the era’s needs. But the surprising news is that these two did not get a place in the team that West Indies announced for the World Cup.

Despite not getting a chance in the World Cup team, star spinner Narine did not react. However, in a recent interview, he was praised for Indian captain Rohit Sharma. Talked about Virat Kohli too.

Narine said, “Rohit is a quality player. There is no doubt about his skills. His batting is mesmerizing. I feel like he is always in rhythm whether he scores runs. I always love watching him play. He has had plenty of success as India captain his IPL record is good. He has a terrific head on his shoulders and he is winning games. ”

India recently won the series against Australia at home. Showing prowess, they also won the first T20 against South Africa. However, Rohit Sharma could not reach the final of this year’s Asia Cup. However, this Caribbean star believes that India will get success relying on Rohit. Narine added, “Rohit is a captain under whose leadership India’s success will come. He is always used to turning around.”

Meanwhile, cricket fans compare India’s two best batsmen Virat Kohli and Rohit at different times. But that comparison is not logical to Narain. He said, ”Comparison of Rohit with Kohli is meaningless in this context. People talk unnecessarily. Who is good or bad is irrelevant to me. Both are very good. Both play in different styles. Both of them sacrificed themselves for the country.”

Narine is not seen in West Indies jersey, but he is a regular face of IPL. He played in Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s Kolkata Knight Riders. Narine last played a Test in West Indies jersey in 2012 against Bangladesh. On the other hand, he last played ODI in 2013 against Pakistan.
