Babur ahead of Kohli

Babar Azam has been in competition with Virat Kohli for the last couple of years. Akib Javed has given a new dimension to this discussion. According to the former Pakistan pacer, Babar is now ahead of Kohli in the fight for the best.
Kohli’s ongoing poor form is the reason why Akib thinks so. The former India captain has not been able to play big innings with the bat for a long time. The last century was seen in November 2019, against Bangladesh in Kolkata.

And at this time 11 centuries have come from Babur’s bat. Five in Tests and ODIs, and one in T20s. This is proof that he is playing with the power in all three editions. Speaking on a local Pakistani channel, Akib said, “Kohli’s performance is at a low ebb now that the best time of his career has passed.”

“I think Babar is ahead now (more than Kohli). He (Kohli) was at the top but is now going down. But on the other hand, Babar is rising. ”

Akib also compared Indian pacer Jaspreet Bumrah and Pakistan’s Shaheen Shah Afridi.
“I think Shaheen is better than Bumrah now. Critics say Bumrah is doing well in Tests and T20s. But now Shaheen has proved that he is better and more capable than Bumrah. ”

The names of Rishav Pant and Mohammad Rizwan were also in Akib’s discussion. He has put Pakistan’s Rizwan ahead of these two keeper-batsmen.

“Rizwan is doing better than Pant at this time. There is no doubt that Pant is a cricketer with incredible skills. But the way Rizwan is taking responsibility, Pant is far behind in this place. ”

“It is often heard that Pant is an aggressive cricketer. But aggression doesn’t mean I played a few big shots and got out. Rather, it is aggression from the wicket, fighting, and finishing the game. ”
