This is why Pakistan star batsman doesn’t want to be compared with Virat Kohli

With Babar Azam being one of the most successful and most aggressive of Pakistan batsmen, it is not too surprising to see the cricket fraternities compare the 24-year-old with Indian cricket great Virat Kohli.

Babar Azam had become the fastest to 1,000 T20I runs last year, breaking Virat Kohli’s record and is also the joint-fastest to 1,000 ODI runs along with legends Viv Richards and Kevin Pietersen.

Downplaying his comparison with Kohli, Babar Azam said, “Whenever you hear, people compare me with Virat Kohli. I think he is a very big player, I am not even close to him. I have just started while he has achieved a lot. I have to achieve and if I perform like that you can compare but not now.”
