Azam is a technically gifted player who is capable of performing in all formats. He is one of the very few batsmen of this modern era to possess a phenomenal batting average across formats.

Pakistan’s run-machine has maintained a fabulous batting average of 44 across formats. Recently, he has drawn comparisons with India’s limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma.

While addressing the media reporters at the press conference, Babar spoke about Rohit Sharma after steering his team to an ODI series win over South Africa.

Pakistan captain who played all three games scored 103, 31 and 94 respectively to help his side clinch the ODI series by 2-1. The right-handed batsman aggregated as many as 228 at a staggering batting average of 76.

While Babar is being compared with Rohit Sharma, the Pakistan captain downplayed such comparisons by adding that Rohit is a different player than he is. “Rohit Sharma is a different player than I am”. Babar further added that he plays according to his strength.

The skipper further added saying that he is currently working on his long shots. “Look, Rohit Sharma is a different player than I am, I play according to my strengths. I am working on my long shots and the idea is to utilize that skill when it’s needed,” Babar Azam was quoted as saying by PakPassion.

Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma will be leading Mumbai Indians for the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League. Rohit Sharma’s team won the 2020 season by beating Delhi Capitals in the final as they defended the title for the first time in history.

The defending champions will be looking forward to defending the title once again in order to become the first team to win three titles in a row. Mumbai Indians will start their title defence tomorrow as they take on Royal Challengers Bangalore at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
