Pakistan cricket team captain Babar Azam is one of the best batsmen in the world. The right-handed batsman plays brilliant cover drives. Babar is the number one batsman in the world in the ICC ODI rankings.
Babar Azam, who is known for his batting, is often compared to former India captain Virat Kohli.
‘Babar Azam better than Virat Kohli’
Former Pakistan fast bowler Naved-ul-Hasan described Babar as better than Kohli and also justified his oinion.
Naved said that “Whenever we compare Babar Azam or Virat Kohli, I always say that Babar is technically stronger than them and that is the reason why he gets less failures.
‘Kohli has more shots’
Kohli has struggled in the recent past for a year and a half because he is a low level player and when these players fail it goes on for a long time.
Talking on the ‘Nadir Ali Podcast’ on YouTube, Naved said that Babar is technically stronger, but Kohli has more shots than Babar.
‘Best pitches for batting are in India’
However, Naved claimed that Babar makes good use of his limited shots. Naved said that the reason why Kohli has more shots than Babar is that most of the pitches in India are great for batting.
“Kohli plays in the IPL where he gets to face world class bowlers,” Naved said.
‘Easy to dismiss Kohli’
Naved claimed that it would be easy to get Kohli out of these two.
“If I was in my old rhythm, I could easily get Kohli out of these two. I had a good outswing, so I would have caught him in the slips or near the wicketkeeper. Kohli is at number eight in the ODI rankings,” he said.
