Wasim Akram, a cricketing legend from Pakistan, believes that even if Virat Kohli has battled for runs over the past two years, he is still one of the all-time greats and that comparing him to Babar Azam is still a little early.
When India plays Pakistan in the opening match of the Asia Cup on Sunday in Dubai, all eyes will be on Virat Kohli. After taking a break for the West Indies away series, Kohli will enter the game with a clear head.
While Kohli has been struggling for a while—without a century since November 2019—Babar appears to be in the prime of his career and excelling in all formats.
“Let me begin by saying that the criticism directed at Kohli by Indian fans has been unnecessary. He is among the greatest ever, not just in this historical period. He is still as agile as ever. He remains one of the Indian team’s top fielders.
