Babar Azam is currently busy playing in the ongoing Pakistan Super League for Peshawar Zalmi. He is the skipper of the side and currently the second-highest run-scorer in this ongoing edition of the tournament. He has scored 416 runs in nine matches, including his first PSL century. 


Now, in a recent interview with the Peshawar Zalmi podcast, Babar Azam opened up that he firmly believes in the phrase "practice makes a man perfect." The Zalmi skipper claimed that he looks to play 500-600 balls daily in practice sessions. He even doubles the number of balls when there is no form.  

“I play 500-600 balls daily during my practice.” - Babar Azam

In the podcast, Babar Azam said: “I think you can only perform in the match when you practice hard. I play 500-600 balls daily during my practice. Even double balls when I am out of form. I believe practice is so important for anyone who wants to perform on the ground." However, fans have criticised Babar a lot over his overall strike rate. Regarding that, he said: “Criticism is always there, whether you perform or not. Everyone has their own opinion. I think when you find any fault in your batting, it takes some time. People want things to get right immediately, which is not possible."


The current Pakistan skipper also claimed that his father, Azam Siddique always pushes him to do better always. My father rarely gets satisfied with my performance because he doesn't want me to take things for granted. He always tries to give me some advice so that I can get better and better. Now, he sometimes praises me. But I think it's good for you that your elders keep guiding you and want more from you," Babar Azam concluded. However, on 16 March 2023, his side will take on Islamabad United in the eliminator one of PSL 8. Hearing such statements from the Zalmi skipper, fans went crazy and started to troll the star batter. They even claimed that it is quite impossible for any player to face 600 deliveries or 100 overs daily in practice sessions.

Here are some funny tweets shared by fans to troll Babar on the social media platform:
