Ramiz Raja compares Babar Azam to Don Bradman

New Delhi: Former Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Ramiz Raza has compared red-hot Babar Azam to Don Bradman.
“Babar Azam is no less than Don Bradman,” Raja said on his YouTube channel.
“In white-ball cricket, he has statistically become the best player in the world. I have never seen so much consistency from a player in such a risky format. The base of which is his technique and temperament. He has no technical issues, whether it is a grassy pitch or a pitch like Karachi, where bowlers generally struggle,” he said.
Babar’s 107 off 117 balls propped up Pakistan’s 334-6, and New Zealand stumbled to 232 all out, its lowest total of the series.
The most lopsided win of the series lifted Pakistan to No. 1 in the ICC ODI rankings and a 4-0 lead. The fifth and last ODI is on Sunday.
Babar, the world’s top-ranked ODI batter, completed 5,000 runs in his 97th inning, surpassing South African Hashim Amla’s record of reaching the milestone in 101 outings.
“He is fastest to 5000 ODI runs and has surpassed many legends like Viv Richards, which is a big achievement. He is the reason why Pakistan has become the number one team in ODI rankings,” he said.
