Srinagar: They both have scintillating and eye catching cover drives and every cricket buff these days is asked to choose between Virat Kohli and Babar Azam.
While Virat Kohli is considered one of the all time great and is going to be amoung legends when he hangs his boots, Babar Azam is fastest breaking into the scene with his consistent performances.
Babar Azam finished as the highest run-scorer in international cricket in 2022, across all formats. The 28-year-old registered 2598 runs in 44 matches, with eight centuries, 17 half-centuries and a highscore of 196. Babar is currently playing in the PSL for Peshawar Zalmi, and is third in the run charts, with 171 runs in four games.
The presence of Kohli and Babar in world cricket has led to intense debate among fans and experts, as to who is the better batter. So, even South African veteran David Miller was asked to choose between the duo, and he had a confident reply.
Miller was asked to choose between Kohli and Babar’s cover-drive. “Probably, I would go with Babar”, said Miller, while talking to ESPNCricinfo.
