Recently, the 38-year-old veteran Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal was asked to choose the best between Indian captain Virat Kohli and Pakistan limited-overs captain Babar Azam.

While Kohli has maintained his batting average over 50 in every format of the international cricket after performing consistently for a long time, Babar has also maintained the 45+ batting average in every format, including 50+ batting averages in both the ODI and T20I cricket.
