New Zealand captain Kane Williamson said that he wants to bat like his Pakistan counterpart Babar Azam.

“He (Babar) is a beautiful player to watch,” Kane Williamson was replying to a question regarding what he would like to borrow from the Pakistan cricketer in a conversation with Cricbuzz. “His cover drives and backfoot punches are superb.”

Williamson also praised Babar’s temperament and ability to score runs.

Babar recently replaced wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed as the side’s ODI skipper and was Pakistan’s highest run-getter in last year’s Cricket World Cup with 474 runs from eight games at an average of 67.71.
