Babar Azam and Virat Kohli are often seen being compared on the basis of their stats and shots selection. Pakistan’s Babar, who is at present the number one T20 batsman, occurs in the top 10 batsman rankings of all the formats which have made him the only batsman to achieve the feat. A quite similar selection of shots, cover drives, and straight drives, have upturned both the batsmen.
Babar believes people shall compare him to the Pakistani legends rather than comparing him to the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli.
Giving examples of Javed Miandad, Younis Khan, and Inzamam ul Haq, Babar said he would fell his achievements as worthy and more proud of himself if people will compare him to these people.
Babar Azam wants people to compare him with Pakistani heroes rather than Kohli
“If you want to compare me with someone, I would like to be compared to Pakistan’s players, instead of Virat Kohli. We have had legends like Javed Miandad, Younis Khan, Inzamam-ul-Haq. If you compare me to these legends, I will like it more and feel proud of my accomplishments,” Azam told reporters in a teleconference.
