Babar Azam will score a big century soon: Agha Salman

Pakistan all-rounder Agha Salman has backed star batsman Babar Azam to regain form as soon as possible.

Babar Azam has struggled for runs and could not score a single fifty in Test cricket last year.

“A bad patch can happen to any cricketer, after what Babar Azam did for Pakistan, that little bad patch doesn’t matter, we don’t care about his form, and he Know how to get out of these situations.” “The way he is working on his batting, I think it is only a matter of time,” Salman said during a post-match press conference during the ongoing Sydney Test on Thursday, against Australia.

He also spoke about Pakistan’s slip-catching when debutant Saeem Ayub dropped a set-off Warner earlier in the day.

“Saim is practicing slip catching. I think there is a problem in the first slip position (laughs). When I was out for a while, Babar Azam thought he would move to second slip (Saim’s (with number one) people who follow. Cricket knows that more catches go to second slip,” he said.

“Dropped catches are part of the game. Australia also dropped catches, and it happens to anybody. There are no easy catches in the slips because you have little time to react. We did it in the slips. He has also taken many catches but no one talks about them (laughs).

Rain wreaked havoc on the second day of the third Test between Pakistan and Australia in Sydney on Thursday.

The entire third session of the day was lost due to continuous rain and poor lighting.

According to the Australian government’s Bureau of Meteorology, there is a 70 percent chance of rain for the rest of the day. Heavy thundershowers are also likely in the west.

Additionally, there is a 50 percent chance of rain, with the highest chance on Friday morning and afternoon.

However, the chance of rain on Saturday and Sunday is only between 20-30 percent.

Earlier, Pakistan got the crucial wickets of openers David Warner and Usman Khawaja to restrict Australia to 116-2 at tea.

Marence Lebuschagne was on 23 and Steve Smith on six when poor light halted play, even with the ground lights on, about 45 minutes before scheduled tea.

With the Storm advancing and the hosts trailing by 197 runs, the umpires decided to have tea early.

Warner was dismissed for 34 and looked angry as he walked out of the Sydney Cricket Ground to a standing ovation from his home crowd after missing out on a stunning century in his 112th and final Test match.
