But the Green Army batsman Babar made fun of this comparison just a few days ago. Babar Azam has been selected as the Pakistani ODI captain by the PCB and to him, the achievements of Virat Kohli are much greater than him as the batsman. So, the comparison is nothing.
With an average of 53.62 runs, Virat scored 7240 runs in Test cricket. He has made 27 centuries already. In the ODI, his average is much better. By playing 248 matches, his average is almost 60 and made 43 centuries already. On the other hand, Babar Azam’s ODI average is 54.17 where he played only 74 ODI matches. He has made a total of 11 centuries so far.
