Ali Ahmed February 11, 2019


Pakistan top order batsman Babar Azam has said that there is no comparison between him and the Indian batting maestro Virat Kohli, with whom the youngster is compared regularly.

“People compare me with Kohli but I think he is a very big player, I don’t think I am anywhere close to him,” said Azam while talking to local media.

“I have just started out and he’s achieved a lot and I still have to do that. If my performances are up to that level then you can compare me but right now there is no comparison,” he added.

Last year, Azam became the then quickest batsman fastest to reach the 1,000 runs milestone in T20 Internationals, after he achieved the feat in just 26 games one match short of his idol the Indian skipper Virat Kohli.

Babar Azam has quickly established himself as the best batsman of his side, and with every passing season has raise hopes of becoming a batting great some day. Earlier, former captain Rashid Latif, said Babar could reach to the levels of Pakistan batting greats Inzamam-ul-Haq and Mohammad Yousuf.

“Azam has been performing for the past year, but for the first time I felt that Babar can become a world class player, and can rise to the caliber of Inzamam, Yousuf and Mohammad Younis,” said Latif.
