New Delhi: Harbhajan Singh is not a fan of Babar Azam, in limited-overs cricket, as he feels that Pakistan captain fails to dominate oppositions. Babar has won ICC ODI Cricketer of the Year award for last two years. While talking to a YouTube channel, the former Indian cricketer said that Babar is more suited for Test cricket.

“Let [Mohammad] Rizwan take a single and bowl five deliveries to Babar, because he won’t inflict damage on you. Babar is a very good batsman in Test cricket, but not in T20s or even for the ODIs. I feel there might be better players than him over in Pakistan,” said Harbhajan. Harbhajan is also not in favour of the Indian team travelling to Pakistan for the upcoming Asia Cup.

"India shouldn't travel to Pakistan as it isn't safe there and why are we taking risk of travelling when their own people aren't safe in their country? Our government is taking the correct decision not to go to Pakistan for any series as our first priority is the safety of our players," he said.
