Virat Kohli And Babar Azam Remind Me Of Sachin Tendulkar: Ian Bishop
Azam has averaged more than Kohli in Tests played since 2018.
Former West Indies fast bowler Ian Bishop has said that Virat Kohli and Babar Azam remind him of Sachin Tendulkar. Bishop was in conversation with former Zimbabwe pacer Pommie Mbangwa on an Instagram live session when he made the observation. He said, “Virat Kohli, Babar Azam, who in terms of the straight lines, you remember Sachin Tendulkar. There’s a reason why I think he was the best batsman I bowled to as he always played in the straight lines and these two guys present that.”
Looking at the styles of both Kohli and Azam, a lot of comparisons between the two have arisen in the last few years. Recently, former England captain, Nasser Hussain had said, “If this was Kohli, everyone would be talking, but as it’s Babar Azam, no one is talking. He’s young, he’s elegant and he’s got swagger. They talk about the Fab 4 (Kohli, Root, Williamson and Smith), but it’s the Fab 5 and Babar is in that.”
