Failure in the Asian Cup and the T20 World Cup, know how Babar Azam became the best cricketer again

On Thursday, Pakistan captain and opener Babar Azam was voted the best men’s cricketer of the year 2022. ICC will award him the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy. Every year this honor is awarded to the player who is the ‘Cricketer of the Year’. Here the question may arise in the minds of many people that how Babar Azam, who has looked colorless for a long time, finally became the best cricketer of last year.

Babar Azam was unable to do anything special in the 2022 Asia Cup nor did his bat work in the T20 World Cup. After this, his bat also went off and on in the domestic series. Despite this, he became the ‘Cricketer of the Year 2022’. This is because the Asian Cup started in August and since then he has been out of form, but before that, in the first 7 months of the year 2022, the runs came out of the bat from him.

Babar Azam looked a bit weak in T20 cricket in the year 2022. In the rest of the ODIs and Test cricket, he continued to bat regularly. Last year in Test Cricket, Babar scored 1184 runs in 17 innings from 9 matches. During this, his batting average was 69.64. He scored 4 centuries and 7 half centuries in these 9 matches.

Babar’s bat scored many runs in ODIs. Last year, in 9 ODIs, Babar scored 679 runs at an incredible batting average of 84.87. In these 9 matches he scored 3 centuries and 5 half centuries. That is, out of 9 games, he scored more than 50 runs in 8 games. This is the reason why he too was voted ‘ODI Cricket of the Year 2022’.

Babar Azam flopped in the Asian Cup and T20 World Cup, but apart from this, he also played some good innings on and off in the rest of the bilateral series. In the year 2022, Babar played 26 T20 matches. Here he scored 735 runs at an average of 31.95 and a strike rate of 123.32. Here he scored a century and 5 half centuries.
