Babar Azam’s Struggles in Australia Surpass Virat Kohli’s England Horror

Babar Azam’s Struggles in Australia Surpass Virat Kohli’s England Horror

Babar Azam’s disappointing performance in the Australia Tests has raised concerns about his recent form. The former Pakistan captain’s struggles in the Sydney Test, where he scored only 23 runs, contributed to his team’s collapse in the second innings. His overall performance in the series, with a total of 126 runs from six innings, has been far below expectations. This is particularly surprising considering the progress Babar has made in the past few years.

His lackluster performance in the Australia Tests comes after a disappointing World Cup in 2023, where he scored only 320 runs in nine matches and failed to lead Pakistan to the semi-finals. Additionally, his last century in any format was back in August 2023, and he has not scored a fifty in Tests for over a year.

With Australia leading the series 2-0, they have the opportunity to secure their sixth consecutive clean sweep over Pakistan. Babar’s recent struggles are a cause for concern for Pakistan’s prospects in the series.
