Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan and one of the best batsmen of the current tour, is always compared with the run machine Kohli. On many occasions, the Pakistani legend has been telling him better than Kohli. In such a situation, Pakistan veteran Shoaib Akhtar has once again praised Azam for his excellent performance on the tour of England. Shoaib has clearly described Babar as a better player than Virat Kohli and described him as the best world-class player in the world. In a video posted on his channel, he also talked about the need for the Pakistani team, describing Babar as the real chase master.
Babar looks better than Kohli – Shoaib Akhtar
In the ongoing seven-match T20 series against England, Pakistan’s team has won 2 matches. In the match played on Sunday, Pakistan won by 3 runs and achieved a big victory by 10 wickets in the match played on Thursday, whose hero was captain Babar Azam.
Babar, who was seen struggling with form in the Asia Cup, scored a scintillating century to give the team a big win and gave the team an edge in the series. In such a situation, former veteran player Shoaib Akhtar has called him the real chase master, considering him a better player than Virat Kohli. Shoaib Akhtar said,
“I think salute to the team for chasing the target. Chasing was once a great feature of Virat Kohli, but now Babar has repeated and shown it. Babar’s class is better than anyone else in this world. His elegance and shot selection are all class and if his strike rate goes above 150-160, he becomes something else. And when he does that, Pakistan wins the match.”
