Pat Cummins reveals the toughest batsman:
The pacer recounted his battles with various batsmen from around the world.
The number one ranked Test bowler in the world, Australian pacer Pat Cummins, has named Pakistan skipper Babar Azam among the toughest batsmen he has bowled to in his international career.
In a question-and-answer session on his YouTube channel, the pacer discussed his battles with various batsmen from around the world.
“These are the best in the world, and they are the obvious ones because they have no flaws. Each team has a couple of batters who are the most difficult to bowl to, but you want to face those challenges because they are the most rewarding,” Cummins said.
“You mention England’s Joe Root and Ben Stokes. Then, of course, there’s Pujara and Virat [Kohli] from India. You have Kane Williamson and Babar Azam on your team. There was AB de Villiers and Faf [du Plessis] in South Africa. Every team has a couple of prized wicketkeepers,” he added.
In international cricket, the right-arm quick has played 34 Tests, 69 ODIs, and 30 T20Is, taking 164, 111, and 37 wickets, respectively.
