4. Babar Azam
It’s after a very long time that Pakistan can claim that one of their batsmen is in the list of the best batsmen in the world across formats. Such is the finesse of Babar Azam, just at the age of 25.
The One Day format was never a question for Babar Azam. 72 innings, 3359 runs at an average of 54.18 and 11 centuries. That doesn’t need any sugar coating. It’s as good as it gets. He has adopted the T20 format pretty good and boasts of an average of 50 plus, along with the number one rank in the ICC T20I rankings.
The Test format was what he was lacking runs in. That changed soon when he hit 5 Test centuries in less than 14 months, from November 2018 to February 2020. As of now, he is the only batsman to be ranked in the top 5 in all three formats.
