Currently, Babar stands atop in white-ball cricket rankings as per the ICC list and is keen to take over the No. 1 spot in Test cricket as well.

Earlier this month, Babar had said, “As a player it’s a dream to become the No. 1 in all formats and, for that, you have to focus and put in hard work. It’s not like if you are the top player in one or two formats, you go easy.”
