Babar Azam Watching Vital Kohli’s Videos Before Vital India-Pakistan Clash

Published

on

Babar Azam in his latest interview stated that he models himself on India captain Virat Kohli days before Pakistan take on the challenge of facing the mighty Indian team. Babar Azam is a vital cog in the wheel for Pakistan and he is keen to refine his batting skills before the vital India-Pakistan clash.

India-Pakistan Cricket Match Could Be A Big Disappointment For Indian Cricket Fans

Babar showed his class by scoring a brilliant 63 in Pakistan’s 348-8 when they beat pre-tournament favourites England earlier in the World Cup. His heroics gave Pakistan their only win so far in the tournament, with defeats against the West Indies and Australia, while their match against Sri Lanka was rained off.

While there is no love lost between India and Pakistan on or off the pitch, Babar is willing to admit he watches Kohli’s batting and tries to learn from him. “I watch his batting and the way he bats in various conditions and try to learn from them,” Babar told reporters.

“I try to learn with experience. This is my process of learning, so I try my 100 per cent. “His (Kohli) winning ratio is higher (for India) so I am trying to achieve that as well.”

Babar, 24, says Pakistan’s Champions Trophy final demolition of India two years ago has increased the team’s confidence and they could claim another surprise success against India this weekend.

“The Champions Trophy win gave us confidence and will also help here as well because the team is mostly the same and that win is always an inspiration,” Babar said.

Pakistan, trounced by 124 runs in the opening match of the Champions Trophy by India, hit back by crushing their bitter rivals in the final. Their 180-run win at the Oval is the biggest over India in all ODIs.

“That win can never go off our memories and it’s a big inspiration,” he said. The India-Pakistan clash will be watched by a vast global audience and Babar insists the pressure will spur his unpredictable team to produce their best. “We are well prepared for this match because India and Pakistan matches are exciting and demanding and the whole world watches it,” Babar said.

“The whole team is positive so we are looking forward to the match. Not only me but all the players want to finish on a high, whoever hits form wants to win it.”

And Babar is confident Pakistan will handle India’s potent pace attack, led by world number one ODI bowler Jasprit Bumrah. “No doubt, India has a good bowling attack but we have played well against England who also have a very good pace attack so all of us are confident the Indian pace attack will be properly handled,” Babar said.
