Babar Azam is disliked by Harbhajan Singh because, in limited-overs cricket, he doesn’t seem to be able to overpower the opponent.
For the past two years, Babar has earned the ICC ODI Cricketer of the Year title.
The former Indian cricketer claimed that Babar is better suited for Test matches while speaking to a YouTube channel.
“Let [Mohammad] Rizwan take a single and bowl five deliveries to Babar, because he won’t inflict damage on you. Babar is a very good batsman in Test cricket, but not in T20s or even for the ODIs. I feel there might be better players than him over in Pakistan,” said Harbhajan.
Harbhajan opposes sending the Indian squad to Pakistan for the forthcoming Asia Cup as well.
“India shouldn’t travel to Pakistan as it isn’t safe there and why are we taking risk of travelling when their own people aren’t safe in their country? Our government is taking the correct decision not to go to Pakistan for any series as our first priority is the safety of our players,” he said.
