Pakistan limited-overs captain Babar Azam has been phenomenal with the bat so far. The cricketer is often hailed with the likes of Fab-4 of cricket which includes Indian skipper Virat Kohli, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson, England’s Test skipper Joe Root and Australia’s swashbuckling batsman Steve Smith.
Azam solidified his position as one of the best batsmen of the modern era as he is the only cricketer to have a spot in the top five of the ICC batting rankings across all the three formats of the game. He is ranked at number 2 in T20 Internationals, Number 3 in ODIs, and Number 5 in the longest format of the game. With 2045 runs in 29 Tests, 3359 runs in 74 ODIs, and 1548 runs in 41 T20I matches since making his debut in 2015 against Zimbabwe, the Lahore-born has caught the attention of everyone.
However, this time the fierce batsman is not in news for another splendid inning of his on the match field. Rather Babar made headlines after flashing his expensive Tag Heuer watch which is the 2020 unworn Monaco Gulf Special Edition. Azam took to his official Instagram handle to post a story of himself where he can be seen showing off his high-priced wristwatch while sporting a black tee.
The iconic Tag Heuer watch is priced around Rs. 7.24 lakhs ($9,848) and looks enticing with its blue dial and square face. The limited-edition piece is crafted with 100% calf leather, 100% stainless steel, and 100% Sapphire Crystal. The pristine timepiece is powered by an automatic movement with an adjustable leather strap and deployment clasp, this piece features a limited-edition offering for your timepiece collection.
Babar Azam loses top spot in ICC T20I rankings
The 25-year-old recently captained the Men in Green in a three-match T20I series against England which resulted in a draw by 1-1. The first match was abandoned due to persistent rain while the second match was won by Englishmen by 5 wickets. However, the visitors clinched the third and the final match by 5 runs to level the series.
After the series with Pakistan, England had played with Australia where they registered victory in the three-match T20I series by 2-1. This resulted in Dawid Malan replacing Babar Azam as the world’s top-ranked Twenty20 batsman. The 33-year-old Malan played splendid knocks of 66, 42, and 21 against Kangaroos and acquired the top spot in ICC’s latest T20I batsmen’s rankings with 877 points. While, on the other hand, Babar slipped to Number 2 spot with 869 points.
