Want to be a professional cricketer?
Pakistan’s prodigal son in world cricket, Babar Azam has opened up on his comparisons with the Indian skipper Virat Kohli. Indian captain Virat Kohli is undeniably one of the greatest batsmen of his generation. Babar Azam, on the other hand, has also established himself as a world-class batsman in a short period.
This has led to comparisons being drawn between the two legendary batsmen of arch-rival nations. Kohli has scored more than 20,000 runs in international cricket so far, and although he might have had a rough patch recently, he seems to be racking up records for fun.
Now, Babar Azam has opened up on the comparisons being made between both the superstars of world cricket and acknowledged that Kohli is one of the best around.
Babar Azam Opens Up On Comparisons With Virat Kohli
“Virat Kohli is one of the best players in the world. I am way behind him and I still have a lot to achieve. I will try to be like him and win matches for my country,” Babar Azam said.
“I don’t make runs to compete with others or to be compared with other top batsmen, I only try to satisfy myself, my team and my fans. Through my performances, I want to make fans happy and help the team win,” Azam added.
Virat Kohli Has Been On Top Of The Charts In The Last Decade
Virat Kohli is arguably the best batsman in world cricket at the moment. He is racking up records for fun, and he is likely to reach the summit in this list in coming times. The flamboyant Indian skipper has already smashed 70 international centuries so far and just seems to get better with days going by.
Kohli is now eighth on the list of the most runs scored by a batsman in international cricket. The Delhi-based star has a very long career ahead and the kind of form that he has been in, it seems a considerable possibility that Virat Kohli will lead this chart too.
