Pakistan’s Babar Azam leads the list of batsmen with the highest scoring average when playing the hook or pull shots in Test cricket.

The batsman, who is the only one in the world to be ranked among the top five across all three formats, leads the table with an average of 152 having been dismissed just once while playing the two shots.

Australians Usman Khawaja (112) and Steve Smith (102.4) are at second and third position respectively while South Africa’s Faf du Plessis comes in at fourth with scoring average 96.6.

Former New Zealand cricketer Brendon McCullum and Kusal Mendis of Sri Lanka round off the top six with their averages of 78 each.

Babar’s numbers are even more impressive considering that Pakistani batsmen are not known for their ability to deal with the short-pitched deliveries aimed at their bodies.
