Since their performance in the semi-final, the 28-year-old has as soon as again got everyone’s assist and even former India cricketer Ajay Jadeja compared the fashionable batter to Virat Kohli together with Sachin Tendulkar in a new analysis with Cricbuzz. Jadeja also pointed out that will Babar’s form was owing to problems different through other players in their team and called the dog a ‘great’ player.

“Well, it is special. It is special more mentally and what you just mentioned, the pressure on that man, because numbers are there, that is not something not new, because he is used to scoring runs. It is just that in the last four-five games, he hasn’t scored runs and he hasn’t shown you anything different from his game. When you look at the strike rate, people who have strike rate problems, they will still have a problem because it’s still at 121 or whatever the number is. The biggest strength is his mindset because to have that pressure of being captain of the side, not scoring runs, the team is not getting anywhere. It is about fighting yourself, when outside noise says so. But it is the inside noise which actually worries you more”, he said.

“The great players actually don’t worry about outside noise. You heard from Virat Kohli, the other day, after his break when he came back. What was it, it wasn’t the outside noise. It was about the noise that was inside. The reason these guys are great players or special players in the world are because these are not ordinary people. So they have problems which are not ordinary like all of us can feel. So it was more about his own thing and if he has been able to overcome, then Zaheer made a great point that sometimes the occasion is so big that you tend to forget what is happening inside you. You just go out there, feel it. Things worked for him, catch dropped, total they were chasing was something they felt confident about. So when things start falling in place for you then that same inside noise says, “today will be my day”.”

“Only Babar Azam, Virat Kohli or Sachin Tendulkar in the past, or people like that will understand what pressure is. Ordinary players have different kinds of pressure. Their pressure is about if they will be in the team and if their place is secured or not, which is a much smaller pressure. The pressure is when everybody in the world things that you should be doing it, your country feels that you are the best, but you inside are struggling to score runs. So that is a much tougher pressure to get out of, and champions are made in these conditions. They are made because they are tested time and again”, he additional added.
