Profile

An opening batsman, Babar Azam was the leading run-getter in the tri-series which also involved Sri Lanka and Bangladesh Under-19 in 2009. He was subsequently picked for the Under-19 World Cup in New Zealand. He was Pakistan's leading run-scorer in the tournament with 298 runs. His favourite shot is the cover drive and has singled out AB de Villiers as his cricketing hero.
