Babar Azam has proven to be a highly successful batsman for Pakistan since making his debut in 2015. Initially considered a potential successor to Virat Kohli on the global stage, significant expectations surrounded the Pakistani cricketer across all formats of the game.

However, over the past 2-3 years, Babar has earned an unfortunate reputation for underperforming in crucial matches for Pakistan while excelling in games that are either straightforward or hold no significant consequences.

What is the Meaning of Zimbabar?

Babar Azam has faced Zimbabwe in 18 matches across all formats, amassing a total of 693 runs with an impressive average of 57.75. The emergence of the “Zimbabar” chant stems from the belief that Babar tends to find his form and score runs when playing against Zimbabwe.

In 2023, Babar Azam experienced a challenging period across various formats. His captaincy during the Asia Cup and ODI World Cup resulted in a lackluster performance by the Pakistan side, ultimately leading to his removal as captain in all formats.

Following the ODI World Cup, Babar struggled to make a significant impact in the Australia Test series but showcased commendable performances in the 5-match T20I series against New Zealand on foreign soil.
