Indian team captain Virat Kohli and Pakistan’s Babar Azam are counted among the best batsmen in the world. Recently, former Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif has compared these two with the great batsman Sachin Tendulkar. He has said that Babar Azam is like Sachin, but Kohli is not around him.

Asif believes that the Indian captain will not be able to come back when bad times come. Kohli has not been able to score a single century in international cricket for the last two years.

He said, “Virat Kohli is the bottom hand player. He is walking because of fitness, as soon as Virat Kohli’s bad times start, I don’t think he will be able to make a comeback. At the same time, if you see Babar Azam, he plays with the upper hand like Sachin Tendulkar.

He further said, “People still say Kohli is better than Sachin, but it is not that he will not wander even near Sachin, as Sachin plays he was upper hand. Technically very few people know this, whether it is the coach or any person involved with the team, cannot tell this thing to you.

It is worth noting that while Babar started his international cricket career in the year 2015, Virat has been active in international cricket since 2008. In such a situation, Kohli has been playing for Team India for more than a decade, while Babar has been representing Pakistan for 6 years.
