Bowling coach Waqar Younis feels that Babar Azam’s latest injury ahead of the New Zealand T20I series is a major setback.
“There is no doubt that Babar is one of the best players in the world now in any format. So it is a major setback for us. Other teams are scared of him,” Waqar said during a media interaction ahead of the New Zealand T20Is.
“It is unfortunate that it (injury) happened at the wrong time, just at the stroke of the series starting,” the Pakistani bowling coach added.
Pakistan will play the series opener against hosts New Zealand at the Eden Park in Auckland on December 18.
