Babar Azam Worth 15-20 Crore in IPL, Says Shoaib Akhtar
Pakistani cricketers are not seen in the Indian Premier League (IPL) due to India-Pakistan hostile relations. If Pakistani cricketers get chance in the IPL, Babar Azam, would be worth Rs 15-20 crore says former Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Akhtar.
The legendary Pakistan pacer believes that Babar Azam, the number one batsman in the ODI and T20 rankings, will be worth Rs 15-20 crore in IPL. The 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is currently underway with players from all major countries of the world taking part except Pakistan.
Shoaib Akhtar became the sports-based site and discussed various issues after the match to discuss the IPL. He is accompanied by former Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh. There he talked about Babar.
The world’s fastest pacer has also expressed his views on how big it would be to see Babar Azam play in the same team with Virat Kohli in the IPL.
“It would be great to see Babar Azam and Virat Kohli start the innings together in the IPL one day,” said Shoaib, known as the ‘Rawalpindi Express’.
Shoaib added, “What an exciting moment that will be. If auctioned, Babar will get 15-20 crore Indian rupees. Babar could be the most expensive player in Pakistan.
Pakistani players participated in IPL only once. In the first season of 2006, 11 Pakistani players participated.
The participating players are Shahid Afridi, Muhammad Asif, Shoaib Malik, Shoaib Akhtar, Younis Khan, Umar Gul, Kamran Akmal, Misbah-ul-Haq, Salman Butt, Muhammad Hafeez and Sohail Tanvir.
