ISLAMABAD: South Africa cricketer Faf du Plessis believes that prolific batsman Babar Azam has the ability to become one of the greats of the game, saying the Pakistani Skipper has surprised with his Twenty20 credentials. The former Proteas skipper admitted that Babar has surprised a lot of people with his T20 credentials and while considering him similar to Indian star batsman Virat Kohli. “I do see similarity between Kohli and Babar. They are extremely high quality players. Babar, over the last year or so, has taken another step towards becoming one of the greats of the game so he has got an exciting future. I think he surprised a lot of people with his Twenty20 cricket. People would have originally boxed him as a guy that hasn’t got a lot of power but certainly of late his Twenty20 game has been remarkable,” cricketpakistan.com.pk quoted him as saying.
