Grant Flower believes Babar Azam to be next Virat Kohli – Do you agree?

Pakistan's special youngster has become topic of the town.


After Babar Azam’s crucial performances, he has managed to gain quite a lot of fame and respect in the eyes of people.

Praising Babar Azam, Grant Flower, the batting coach of Pakistan’s cricket team, shared his belief saying that he thinks Babar Azam has the potential to mimic or imitate Virat Kohli, the renowned Indian cricketer.

“He’s got Virat’s hunger. I think he could be at some point in the future. He’s definitely got that hunger, so if you practice as hard as he does, and you have his skills, I can’t see why he can’t get to the top” – said Grant Flower.

He also said that his century against the ‘Kiwis’ was one of the finest in terms of confidence.

”I’ve seen him get quite a few hundreds on pretty flat wickets, but this was a tough wicket — it was turning, Ferguson was bowling fast and there was a lot of pressure because of the context of the tournament,” he added.

He believes that Babar will become Pakistan’s finest batsman due to his clearly visible potential. The 24-year-old athlete scored 101 runs in the crucial match against New Zealand, the century included 11 boundaries. He played a massive role in helping his team chase down a target of 238 runs.

Babar Azam’s quality performance in the CWC 2019 so far:

Babar was also involved in a partnership with Muhammad Hafeez and managed to score 66 runs collectively in his iconic CWC 2019 performances. He then put on a 126 runs partnership with Haris Sohail for the fourth wicket and managed to win the match for his team.

Babar Azam collectively has scored 333 runs in the 15 innings he’s played in the world cup. His average was 66.60 and the strike rate stood at 85.16. He has one century and two half-centuries to his name. Babar Azam is quite the talent, it isn’t often that a batsman as talented as him comes to play. He has gained a lot of fame at such a young age.
