ICC T20 World Cup: Wasim Akram says THIS on Virat Kohli-Babar Azam comparison ahead of IND vs PAK clash

With the India vs Pakistan clash days away, former Pakistan cricketer Wasim Akram gave his views on the most talked topic – the comparison between skipper Virat Kohli and Babar Azam. 

While fans wait for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 clash to begin, the legendary Pakistan fast bowler has said that it is unfair to compare both the captains. It will be the first time Babar and Kohli will meet as captains in a World Cup fixture.

Talking about it, Akram said that the young Pakistan star is a quick learner and will get better with time as the leader. Babar Azam had taken over as captain in all three formats only last year, and he will now face the biggest test of his nascent captaincy career – the World Cup.

“Virat Kohli is Virat Kohli. He has dominated world cricket, scored all those runs over these years. He has led India. Babar Azam has started captaining Pakistan only now. But as far his technique is concerned, is very good to watch and very consistent in all formats,” Akram told India Today.

“He is learning his captaincy, he is a quick learner. So, it’s unfair to compare those two now. But Babar is definitely heading towards the position where Virat Kohli is now.”

The young Pakistani batter is just like Kohli among the top 10 across all three formats in the ICC rankings. The 27-year-old averages over 50 in ODIs after scoring 3985 runs in 83 matches while in Tests and T20Is, his average is just below the 50-mark. He has already slammed 20 international hundreds.

As far as the India and Pakistan clash is concerned, the match will be played on October 24 in Dubai. The Men in Blue have not lost any ICC clash against their arch-rivals and will be looking to continue the same form.
