Both played brilliantly with the bat. India’s one of the best batsman Virat Kohli and Pakistan team captain Babar Azmar have many achievements in their cricket career. However, India’s run machine Virat Kohli will be ahead in terms of experience. He has impressed the entire cricket world with his excellent performance with the bat. Former Indian captain Azharuddin opened up about the two best batsmen of the two countries. He also put forward Kohli who showed aggression with the bat.
Azharuddin spoke about Kohli and Babar in an interview recently. According to Azharuddin, Babar is not able to play well regularly because of the pressure in the position where he usually bats. Azharuddin said about Pakistan captain Babar Azam, “Babar is one of the pillars of Pakistan’s batting. In the position in which he comes to bat in the match, there is pressure on him. Because of this, he could not play well. But if he survives after entering the field, he will do well..”
On the other hand, the former Indian captain put Kohli ahead in terms of experience at 22 yards. Kohli has recorded all the great things with the bat. A few days ago, he scored the 74th century of his career. Moving towards breaking Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 100 centuries. Comparing Kohli with Babar, Azharuddin said, “Babar is often compared to Virat Kohli. But I think Kohli definitely plays better than Babar. Because he has more experience. Kohli has played more matches than Babar.”
Babar Azam captained all three formats of Pakistan cricket. Azharuddin claims that carrying out so many responsibilities becomes stressful for him. Azharuddin also thinks that Babar is sometimes not able to do well because of this extra responsibility. In this context, he also said, “Currently, a lot of cricket is played. The cricketers are already under pressure. Babar Azam is a little stressed in the short form due to the pressure of this responsibility. So he may not be able to play well. But with the quality of batsman he is, he may return to the rhythm soon.”
It should be noted that for the last few days, questions have been raised about Babar’s captaincy. Pakistan recently lost the Test series at home under his captaincy. According to Pakistani news sources, the Pakistan Cricket Board will soon hold a discussion regarding the sharing of his captaincy. The board is talking about sharing this responsibility instead of giving Babar the responsibility of captain in three formats. According to Najam Shetty’s board sources, Babar Azam is about to be removed from the Test captaincy. However, PCB and Babar have not officially announced anything in this regard.
