Promising Pakistani batsman Babar Azam likes to take up challenges its one quality of his game that has helped him succeed in his career. Azam has often shouldered the burden of scoring runs for his team in almost all formats of the game with ease and confidence.
As a result is compared with the likes of one of the greatest cricketers of his generation Virat Kohli. His consistent success in international cricket bore fruit for him with the PCB appointing him Captain of the ODI Team. He earned his ODI cap in 2015 and has been performing consistently with the bat.
Babar Azam has scored at an average of 45 in Tests and over 50 in the ODIs he has played for Pakistan. Putting a full stop to the Virat Kohli comparison, he wants people to compare him with one of the Pakistani Legends Javed Miadad, or Younis Khan.
“I dont want to be compared to Virat Kohli. It would be better if people compare me with Pakistani legends like Miandad, or Younis Khan or Mohammed Yousuf.” Babar said speaking to Pakistani media.
Pakistan are scheduled to tour England starting July. They will play 3 Tests and 3 20/20 matches. Babar Azam will be looking forward to carry his good form in this series.
