Babar Azam is the best batter across formats, with many former players lauding the consistency shown by the current Pakistan captain.

He plays the cover drive to perfection, and many feel the right-handed batter has the best cover drive in the world. Former England skipper Nasser Hussain also has the same view.

The veteran player recently spoke about Babar’s favorite shot. “If I am teaching any young boy to watch a cover drive, I would say watch Babar Azam,” he said.

Sachin Tendulkar was renowned for his cover drive, while Virat Kohli is among the cricketers who have mastered this shot.

Babar has been dealing in the fifties, and hundreds in the last few series and has climbed up in the ICC Rankings. He is the number one batter in ODIs and T20Is, while the 27-year-old is ranked third in Test cricket.
