Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper is hands-down one of the very talented cricketers we have in the world right now. He is considered as the number one batsmen in the world currently. Virat Kohli has set the benchmark for batting with his unprecedented consistency across formats.
However, there has always been this intense competition between the cricketers, be it with the Australian cricketers or Pakistani cricketers. Lately Pakistani cricketing fraternity, is busy in comparing Babar Azam with Virat Kohli since a long time now.
For the first time, Babar Azam spoke about the same, when he was asked to comment about his comparison with Virat Kohli. What Babar Azam said has won the hearts of many and reflected how humble Babar Azam is as a person. He was all praises for Virat Kohli and totally resented the issue, he 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,”
Here, have a look at the video :
Well, that was really modest and sweet of Babar Azam and the way he answered the question, he has really earned the respect of fans. Netizens are praising him like never before, here, have a look at some of the reactions of twitterati on this :
Class in batting and class in talking as well.
