Peshawar Zalmi skipper Babar Azam recently spoke highly of his team's opening batsman and partner Muhammad Haris, who has been performing exceptionally well under pressure. Babar compared Haris' impact to that of his former opening partner, Mohammad Rizwan, and praised the chemistry he has developed with him.

In an exclusive interview with Cricket Pakistan, Babar said that Haris is making a similar impact as Rizwan. He further stated that the 21-year old plays well under pressure and always puts pressure on the opposing team while executing his game plans.

The Pakistan skipper also acknowledged his partnership with Rizwan stating that he has a different chemistry with the wicket-keeper. However, he reckoned that currently, both of them are playing for a different franchise team with their respective partners in their own team.

Babar also applauded veteran fast bowler Wahab Riaz for his contribution to the team. He mentioned the left arm pacer's experience playing in various leagues, including the Bangladesh Premier League, and how it has helped the younger players to learn and improve their skills. According to the Zalmi captain, Riaz's experience will be an asset to the team, especially to the younger players who can learn a lot from him.

The Pakistan captain also opened up on Saim Ayub, who has left everyone impressed with his improved batting technique and his ability to handle pressure. The 28-year old praised Ayub's performance and highlighted how his confidence has led to impactful performances in the tournament.

Babar was impressed with Ayub's progress in terms of his batting technique compared to his previous performance. He highlighted the importance of performing well under pressure and believes that the 20-year old youngster’s ability to do so will not only benefit him but also the team as a whole.
