In a major statement made in KARACHI, legendary Pakistani hitter and current batting instructor Mohammad Yousuf claimed that top-ranked white ball batter Babar Azam did not need much coaching.
Yousuf, Babar’s batting coach, recently made an appearance on the ARY News show Bouncer (Eid Special), where he responded to the host’s question by saying that the all-format Pakistan skipper does not need much tutoring at the moment because of his strong performance.
Yousuf told the host, “Babar doesn’t need to learn anything.” “He’s doing fine, and I try not to mess with anyone who’s playing well at the moment.”
The great batsman continued his effusive admiration for left-handed opener Imam-ul-Haq, making the same claim he had previously made about Babar.
“Same goes for Imam, as he too, is doing incredibly well. If there is even a slight flaw in his method, though, I let him know. Yousuf said, “I try not to disrupt the hitters who are doing well.
Yousuf then offered his thoughts on the Green Shirts’ middle order, saying that despite their current struggles, the team is trying hard to overcome their adversities.
You’re right that rapid singles are crucial for the middle order. Yousuf said, “We had a camp and at one of the nets I remember us coaching the players on how to play sweep shots.
Because, as far as I understand cricket, a sweep shot is what batters do while facing spinners. The bowler then will either bowl a full-length delivery or a slightly short-of-length delivery. He concluded that the batter is given more leeway to make runs, and that strike rotation is simplified as a result.
It is worth noting that the national team’s middle order has been struggling as of late, as evidenced by their poor performance in the just-concluded home ODI series against West Indies.
