Babar Azam Net Worth

Babar Azam is currently Pakistan’s captain in all formats and is probably one of the world’s finest batsmen of all three formats. Azam is building his own legacy in a country that is famous for producing big fast bowlers but Azam is different and is likely to be remembered as one of the modern-day greats when he leaves this game. 

Babar rose to the international scene in 2015 but cricket runs in his family’s blood. His cousins Kamran and Umar Akmal were already big cricketing icons in Pakistan when he first started playing cricket in the academy. He was born in Walled City which is known for producing many big players in Pakistan but Azam has taken that legacy to higher feats. 

Although he made his debut in 2015 against Zimbabwe but couldn’t establish himself in the experienced Pakistani lineup after the 2016 World Cup failure, Pakistan decided to revamp their lineup and Babar Azam got the opportunity to bat at number 3. He grabbed his chance with both hands and scored 3 consecutive hundreds in the ODI series which was his turning point in his career and he, later on, established his place in all three formats the same year. 

He is currently a Pakistan skipper, who has churned out lots of success at the top. The right-handed batsman finally finished Pakistan’s long drought of a win against India in the T20 World Cup. On 24th October, he stitched a mammoth partnership of 152 runs with Mohammad Rizwan and led Pakistan to a thumping win against Team India in the group stage game of the T20 World Cup.

Babar Azam is now compared with Virat Kohli and his fans all around the world love his elegant batting style. He was appointed Pakistan’s captain in 2020 and this year’s World T20 will be his first challenge as captain of Pakistan. He has achieved many feats on and off the field and in this article, we will be discussing his net worth, stats, house, cars, etc.
