Shoaib Akhtar, like James Anderson, backed Babar.
Shoaib Akhtar stated on the social networking website Twitter that he agrees with James Anderson. He expressed surprise that the best T20 player in the world was not included in The Hundered.
It should be noted that England’s senior player, James Anderson, stated in a podcast that he was surprised that Babar was not selected for the Hundred League, and that he can spent double amount of money to get players like Babar Azam in their team.

James Anderson stated that I would have spent my entire budget to select Babar; I believe his availability was the reason he was not chosen.
