Both Virat Kohli and Babar Azam are currently counted among the best batsmen in the world. Virat Kohli has made many records in the cricket world, while Pakistan’s limited overs captain Babar Azam They are also seen walking on this path. For this reason, Babar is also often compared with Virat Kohli.
People have different opinions about these two in the cricket world. Most of the experts keep Kohli far ahead. Kohli, Williamson, Steve Smith and Joe Root are among the top four batsmen in the world, but former England captain Nasir Hussain has now talked about making it a Fab 5. The new name Mohammad Yusuf has also been added to those who compare Virat and Babar. Although former Pakistan middle-order batsman Yusuf did not describe anyone as a clear winner, he definitely called the Pakistani captain better than Virat Kohli on certain parameters.
Yusuf said, ‘Kohli has played a lot of cricket while Babar has been in international cricket for only three or four years. But yes, if you ask me to compare then I will see how Kohli’s records were after playing almost so many matches. From this perspective, I can say that Babur has done better.
Yusuf said that most people believe that the comparison between Kohli and Babar is not right, largely due to experience. Pakistani captain is quite young. But Babar’s performance is better than Kohli based on numbers. Babur’s figures in the first five years are better than Kohli’s. However Yusuf did not take any credit from Kohli. He said that captaincy has made Kohli even better.
Yusuf said, ‘Kohli is very devoted to work and that is why he is also very successful. He has scored in every country. I think the captaincy has made him better.
