Laxman, Smith picks Babar Azam in their dream 11 to beat India at home
Pakistan’s top-order batsman Babar Azam continues to experience a surge in his fan-base. After making his mark in the white-ball cricket evident from his sparkling numbers, the right-hander is now progressing in the Test cricket. He endured a tough time in the early days of Tests, but his recent performances have been top notch.
For this reason, Babar has been picked by the former cricketers VVS Laxman and Graeme Smith in their dream 11 to beat India at home. While he averages only 35.28 in 40 innings, Babar’s numbers are witnessing a positive trend.
Knowing the quality of the Indian team, particularly at home, Smith and Laxman compiled their sturdy team consisting of the current players. They believe that they picked a unit that contains enough depth and strength in all the three departments of the game to take down India.
The dream team consists of the following names:
Dean Elgar, Tamim Iqbal, Kane Williamson, Steve Smith, Babar Azam, Shakib Al Hasan, Ben Stokes, Quinton de Kock (wicket-keeper), Pat Cummins, Jofra Archer and Nathan Lyon.
