Babar Azam’s admirer Ashwin says Kohli comparisons still premature
Former Indian cricketer Akash Chopra, in a YouTube interview with former Pakistani fast bowler Tanveer Ahmed on Friday, claimed that it was premature to compare Pakistan’s prolific batsman Babar Azam and India’s skipper Virat Kohli at this time in their respective careers.
The 42-year-old believed that Kohli had already established his name amongst the all-time greats whereas Babar still has a long way to go.
“Babar is an exciting talent. There is no doubt about that, it is also true that Virat Kohli is very far away in this race. He is older and started cricket before Babar. Virat’s name is already included in the conversation of all-time greats,” said Chopra.
