Babar Azam has been selected as the ICC Cricketer of the Year for the last two consecutive years. This star cricketer of Pakistan is one of the best batsmen of the time. But according to cricket experts, this Pakistani batsman cannot play against spin very comfortably. On the other hand, there is another person in the cricket world whose batting has impressed the entire cricket world. Indian star batsman Virat Kohli. Many people call him ‘Run Machine’. This time the former Pakistani cricketer advised Babar to prepare himself like Kohli.
A few days ago, the Pakistan captain also set a bad precedent. He was also criticized for being bowled in three consecutive matches. In a recent interview, former Pakistan cricketer Mushtaq Ahmed said, “Babar Azam is the number one batsman in the current cricket world. There is no doubt about it. But he has enough room to improve. It is heard that Babar cannot play spin. He even got bowled three to four times by the spinners. “
On the other hand, Virat Kohli is always fluent against spinners. This is where Babar Azam needs to learn, says Mushtaq, “If Babar wants to counter leg spin and googly, he has to prepare himself like Kohli. He has to plan in advance whether he will play on the back foot or forward.”
Citing the example of Shadab, Mushtaq also said, “Babar has improved in his leg spin and line and length. I have spoken to Shadab, he has learned a lot of techniques recently. Although there are fitness issues at times. But Shadab is a good cricketer. A three-in-one cricketer likes Shahid Afridi. He also performs well in all three areas – batting, bowling and fielding. “
There is a war of words between Babar and Kohli among their fans about who is the best. A few days ago, former Pakistan captain Misbah also commented on this. According to him, Babar Azam’s cricketing career has not started long, whereas Kohli is an experienced player. He got the opportunity to play many matches in international cricket. So according to Misbah, it would not be right to differentiate between Babar Azam and Virat Kohli right now. Anyway, let’s see how Babar prepares against spin following Mushtaq’s advice
