Babar Azam has often been compared to India skipper Virat Kohli but Pakistan’s young batsman said that there was no comparison between him and the Indian run-machine. While the Pakistan cricketer called himself a “beginner”, he dubbed Kohli as a “great batsman”. Azam, in a chat session on micro-blogging site Twitter, answered a fan who asked him how he feels when called ‘Kohli of Pakistan’.
Azam didn’t take much time and replied: “There is no comparison. @imVkohli is a great batsman and I am just a beginner. But I would like to be recalled as Babar Azam of Pakistan :)”
The 22-year-old has played 31 ODIs so far in his career, scoring 1455 runs at an average of 53.88. He has six fifties and five centuries to his name.
