Babar Azam is one of the best modern-day batters going around and he has had a great international career across formats so far. His cover drives is quite elegant, and he has a text book technique which has been more reliable and consistent. He leans into the drive usually and most of the experts in the commentary panel have praised Babar for the way he plays the cover drive.  

The popularity of Babar’s cover drive has now gone to the next level in Pakistan, as there has been a physics question relating to it in class nine student’s syllabus. Although it is more about the kinetic energy concept, Babar seemed to have impressed a lot of Pakistan syllabus makers with his cover drive.  

Here’s the question relating to Babar Azam’s cover drive 

“A question about Babar Azam's cover drive has made it to the Physics syllabus of Class 9 in Pakistan #Cricket,” a Pakistan fan posted on Twitter.  

Pakistan recently lost the final against Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2022 under the leadership of Babar and there has been a lot of talk over his form which proved to be a major factor in the defeat. The right-hander finished with just 68 runs in six innings at an average of 11.33 and had the best score of just 30, which is way below his usual standards.  

He found different ways to be dismissed and has dropped to the number three position in the ICC Men’s ranking for T20I batters. With the T20 World Cup just few weeks away, it is important for Babar to get back among the runs and before that, he will play seven T20Is against England make sure he is back at his best.

Pakistan is scheduled to play England in a seven match T20I series starting from the 20th of September and it will be followed by a tri-nation series involving Pakistan, Bangladesh and New Zealand.
