Babar Azam is one of the most amazing batters going around at present and he has had a superb international career in all formats so far. His cover drives are exquisite, and they are a treat to watch. He has a technique that he follows to the T which has been more tried and tested.
He leans into the drive usually and most of the experts in the commentary panel have praised Babar for the way he plays the cover drive. This is a similar technique that Rahul Dravid used to have while playing the cover drive.
The popularity of Babar’s cover drive has now gone to the next level in Pakistan as there is a physics question relating to it in class nine student’s syllabus. Although it is more about the kinetic energy concept, Babar seemed to have impressed a lot to the Pakistan syllabus makers with his cover drive.
Here is the tweet that has gone viral:

“A question about Babar Azam’s cover drive has made it to the Physics syllabus of Class 9 in Pakistan #Cricket,” a Pakistan fan posted on Twitter.
Pakistan lost the final against Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2022 a few days back under the leadership of Babar and there has been a lot of noise over his form which proved to be a critical factor in Pakistan’s Asia Cup debacle. The right-hander ended the multilateral tournament with just 68 runs in six innings at an average of 11.33 and with a highest score of just 30.
He has not been able to grind it out and get a big score and has dropped to the number three position in the World Governing Body Men’s ranking for T20I batters. With the T20 World Cup just round the corner, it is important for Babar to get back among the runs. Before that, he will play seven T20Is against England and those can help him get back into his old form.
