It’s too early to compare Babar and Virat: Younis Khan
Former Pakistan captain Younis Khan believes it is at least five years too early to compare Virat Kohli and Babar Azam. Where the Indian skipper has proven himself in ‘every kind of situation’ on the other hand Babar Azam has stepped few years ago.
Younis Khan believes, Babar Azam still has a long way to go to get along with the supremacy Virat has. “Virat Kohli is far more experienced than Babar. He has at least five years more experience of top cricket and he is at the peak of his career,” said Younis, Pakistan’s leading run-getter in Tests.
“Kohli has far more exposure than Babar and he has been in every kind of situation and proven himself. No one gets 70 international centuries like that and this are proof of his class and abilities. He has scored runs in every situation and all opposition.”
“Babar has been in top cricket for just around five years. He has got a very impressive batting average across all three formats and he is getting better by the day. You see him batting and you can see he has got the same qualities that Kohli had at the very early stage.”
Besides amassing 70 international hundred, the Indian skipper averages more than 50 in all three formats of the game. Kohli has scored more than 20,000 runs in all formats of the game. On the other hand, Babar has 6680 runs across formats. Although the Pakistan limited overs skipper has played only few international matches.
