The ICC Men’s Player of the Month award for August 2023 has been given to Babar Azam, who is now placed first in the men’s ODI player rankings.
He has already been honored with this coveted award three times. Babar’s outstanding performances throughout the month won over both supporters and naysayers. He outperformed both Nicholas Pooran of the West Indies and his teammate Shadab Khan to win this well-deserved honor.
Babar expressed his joy and thanks upon collecting the prize, highlighting the great month that he and his team had enjoyed. During the Asia Cup, he also talked about how much fun it was to play in front of enthusiastic fans in Multan and Lahore.
One of Babar’s career high points was his historic ODI score of 150+ in Multan, which was extra significant because it was made in front of his home people. Looking ahead, Babar expressed his desire to continue playing well as the Asia Cup’s latter stages and the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup draw near.
He is still committed to making the millions of Pakistani followers happy. Babar established himself as a cricket legend on the Asian subcontinent throughout the month with impressive performances, especially in the 50-over format.
