Former Pakistani Head coach Mickey Arthur reveals reason for success of Babar Azam

ISLAMABAD - Former Pakistani Head coach Mickey Arthur reveals reason for success of Babar Azam.

Pakistan’s former Head Coach Mickey Arthur has revealed the key to the Men in Green's Twenty20 International (T20I) skipper Babar Azam’s success against Australia in the ongoing series Down Under.

Arthur claimed that Babar’s ability to hit the ball late was the difference between his prolific performance and the struggles of other batsmen in the Pakistan side, Cricket Pakistan has reported.

“Babar's hitting the ball nice and late, that's key in Australia. His contact point is right under his eyes which allow him to open up the off-side.

Other Pakistani batsmen are very anxious and getting out in front of them which leads to a loss of shape, loss of power,” said Arthur.

The former head coach praised the performance of middle-order batsman Iftikhar Ahmed and hinted that he could be the answer to the Men in Green’s search for a power-hitter.
