Pakistan’s former captain and the current all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has opened up about the comparison between Babar Azam and Virat Kohli. Recently, Babar has went on to become one of the best batsmen in the cricket world. He has been continuously compared with his counterpart Virat Kohli.
However, Hafeez feels that no competition exists between the two as both cricketers have different domains. “I think it’s not right to compare these two [Babar Azam and Virat Kohli]. Kohli is a brilliant cricketer and he has performed all over the world but Babar is also playing exceptionally well. Both have two different sides and there is no comparison between them.”, Hafeez said.
Babar Azam has also denied his competition with the Indian captain in the past as he feels that Virat has achieved many things which he wants to achieve. Nevertheless, with the rivalry between the two playing nations, the public enjoys comparing the two quality batsmen.
