Lahore Qalandars’ head coach and former Pakistani pacer Aaqib Javed has opened up on the comparison between Virat Kohli and Babar Azam.
He said Azam is way ahead of Virat Kohli and added that the Pakistan captain is at the peak of his career. Aaqib feels Babar has dominated across formats while Kohli is going through a lean patch.
“I think Babar is ahead. Virat had his peak but he is now going down. On the other hand, the Pakistan captain is going up,” the 49-year-old was quoted by Cricket Pakistan. Azam is currently the top-ranked batter in the ODI and T20I format in the ICC Rankings.
He is also among the top five batters in the Test rankings as well. Javed also shared his opinion on the comparison between Shaheen Shah Afridi and Jasprit Bumrah.
“Shaheen is better than Bumrah because when Shaheen started playing Bumrah was a established name but now the Pakistan pacer has proved he is even better and has more capacity than the Indian pacer,” he added.
