Australian Test captain Pat Cummins talked almost the similitudes between the big players in world cricket – Virat Kohli, Babar Azam, Joe Root, and Kane Williamson, claiming that they are all exceptionally recognizable with their playstyle and can collect runs very rapidly.
“All know their game incredibly well, They are never flustered, happy to bat long periods of time. If there is an opportunity, they get off the mark pretty quickly, start accumulating the runs really quickly. Unless you are right on the money from the first ball you feel like they are already into their innings,” Cummins said in the pre-match press conference.
Pat Cummins on comparison between Kohli and Babar
Following Babar’s consistent performances for Pakistan over the years, comparisons between him and Kohli began. Although Babar still has a long way to go in his career, there are obvious similarities between their batsmanship, as pointed out by Cummins.
“They are both really complete batters no matter what format you play, they present their challenges. They are both really high quality (players), both have scored centuries against Australia over the years,” Cummins added.
