Babar Azam was absolute poetry in motion in his 13th odi ton. He is the fastest to 13 odi tons. Babar Azam strokes was worth gold to watch him wade into it. Babar Azam, after Hashim Amla’s classicism is the next one of his generation.
Rassie van der Dussen was struggling to convert the forties and fifties into a big one, but the big one came today with his maiden odi ton v Pakistan. Looks a wonderful talent. He was the one instrumental in getting South Africa to a challenging score of 273, but not winning it was not in his hands.
Match which looked under Pakistan’s control suddenly thrown out of gear & even getting just 3 runs of the final over led to high drama with Pakistan able to win only on the final ball of the match of Phelukwayo.
