Star Pakistani batsman Babar Azam is busy creating a legacy of his own, as he continues to pile on a heap of runs in all formats. Vastly improving in performance with each passing game, Babar’s unwavering consistency has compelled fans to draw parallels with arguably the best batsman in world cricket – Virat Kohli.
The top-tier player has set the benchmark high and Babar is gradually catching up with the records achieved by Kohli. Talking about the comparisons with his Indian counterpart, Babar has played down such statements and instead called for a more balanced assessment of his skills. The humble response from Babar has garnered praise from fans for respecting the class of Kohli.
“Whenever you hear, people compare me with Virat Kohli. I think he is a very big player, I am not even close to him. I have just started while he has achieved a lot. I have to achieve and if I perform like that you can compare but not now,” Babar spoke in a recent interactive session hosted by Karachi Kings.
