Srinagar: Former Pakistan pacer Rana Naved-ul-Hasan has claimed that he would have got Team India superstar Virat Kohli out easily, had he been in his “old rhythm”.
Rana’s comments came while he was comparing Virat Kohli to Babar Azam during a youtube show.
“Whenever we compare Babar Azam with Virat Kohli, I always say Babar is more technically sound than Kohli, and this is why he fails less. Kohli struggled recently for a year or year and a half because he is a bottom-handed player, and when such players fail it lasts longer,” the former Pakistan pacer told Nadir Ali on latter’s podcast on YouTube.
“Babar is technically more sound and plays in his limits, though he doesn’t have as many shots as Kohli has.
“If I was in my old rhythm, then I can get Kohli out easily. I had good outswing so I would have gotten him caught at slips or the wicketkeeper.”
Virat Kohli is currently a part of the Indian team in the two-match Test series against West Indies.
