Babar Azam, Pakistan U-19 Skipper
Babar Azam is the captain for the U-19 team of Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2012. He is just 17 years old and he plays for the team Pakistan A.

Babar is a right handed player and he is opening batsman for his squad. He bowls off-break. He has played 4 first class matches in which he has made 106 runs for the team. Recently in January he made 88 runs against South Africa.

Babar struggles a lot with pacers. In his career, he has been mostly taken out by pacers. In his last A-class match in March he was bowled away by pacer while in his debut in A-class match he was made out by an off-break bowler.

Babar loves to play cover drive. So, Nepali bowlers must understand this fact. He is a well adjusted batsman in the pitch. Changing bowlers against Babar will be good. Both, pacers and spinners should be used against him.

Nepal will be facing Pakistan in the Asia Cup. So, by rounding both spinners and pacers Nepal must take his wicket because Babar is a big hitter and a stable batsman. Wicket of Babar is gate way for victory.
