This year, Babar is quite pumped about his team’s chances in this season. Zalmi have been on and off as far as their form is concern but Baba has looked superb so far in the tournament with the bat. Not to forget, he had a forgettable 2023, getting out for one low score after the other. In Australia too, he could not find much form with the bat.In T20Is vs New Zealand, he started getting his groove back and in this season of PSL, the Pakistani batter has hit form.
