U19 World Cups have always acted as a bridge for budding cricketers to showcase their talent on the world stage, and today's modern-day great Babar Azam was no different in showcasing his sheer potential at the 2012 U19 World Cup in Australia, as he was the captain and also scored two fifties and a hundred.

It was that stage where Babar started getting attention by showing his skills, after which he never looked back, and today, he is a world-class batter, courtesy of some sensational performances for Pakistan in the international circuit in all forms of the game.   

The International Cricket Council (ICC) shared a video of the 2012 U19 World Cup on their official Twitter handle, which had glimpses of players who have made a name for themselves 10 years later.

"From Babar Azam to Quinton de Kock, these superstars of today left an unforgettable impression at the 2012 ICC Men's U19 Cricket World Cup in Australia Fire," ICC tweeted.

"Enjoy this edition of Top of the Class as we countdown to this year's #U19CWC," the tweet read.
