Babar Azam said : “I am thankful to the ICC and its jury for recognising my achievements with the bat in 2019 and considering me worthy of a place in the side that includes some of my favourite cricketers who entertained the fans throughout the year with their outstanding performances. However, I will reserve my biggest gratitude to my team-mates and fans as without their support this would not have been possible. We played and performed as one team, with the fans always behind us despite our up and down performances. These acknowledgements serve as additional incentives to cricketers to perform even better and continue to play their important part in further globalising this great sport. 2020 has started well for Pakistan cricket and we as a team look forward to building on it so that at the end of the year, there are more of us when the ICC announces the next set of winners same time next year.

This year, I worked on improving the mistakes I made in the format and was able to overcome some of them which helped me make some runs,” “The more you play the longer format, the more you understand the nuances of the game and find your way. My innings in South Africa against Dale Steyn gave me great pleasure and confidence that I can get into the Test match zone. I also learned how to convert 60s and 70s into 100s, and then my century in Australia gave me confidence that I can make big runs in the format” External link

We [Batsmen] were asked to play in the final because we already had three or four days of rest. The more chances we get the more the players will benefit,” External link

Babar Azam said : “Test cricket was quite rewarding for me this year. For the past two years, I wasn’t quite living up to my own and cricket fans’ expectations in the longest format. This year, I worked on improving the mistakes I made in the format and was able to overcome some of them which helped me make some runs,” “The more you play the longer format, the more you understand the nuances of the game and find your way. My innings in South Africa against Dale Steyn gave me great pleasure and confidence that I can get into the Test match zone. I also learned how to convert 60s and 70s into 100s, and then my century in Australia gave me confidence that I can make big runs in the format” External link

Babar Azam said : “The players who have been rested had been playing consistently and had some niggles. That is why the management took the decision. A fast-bowlers body works differently than the batsmen. They have to apply more power. We wanted them to recover in time for the next series. We [Batsmen] were asked to play in the final because we already had three or four days of rest. The more chances we get the more the players will benefit,” External link
