Babar Azam wants to emulate Virat Kohli’s match-winning abilities

India takes on Pakistan in the Cricket World Cup later today

Pakistan batsman Babar Azam wants to emulate Virat Kohli’s match-winning abilities, as he gears up for the much-awaited contest against India at Old Trafford, Manchester on Sunday.

“I watch his batting and the way he bats in various conditions and tries to learn from them. His (Kohli’s) winning ratio is higher (for India), so I am trying to achieve that as well,” Babar told reporters on Friday.

Baba Azam has often been compared to Kohli, and some Pakistani experts have even called him better than Virat Kohli. Baba Azam has been the most consistent batsman from Pakistan in the recent past.

“No doubt, India has a good bowling attack, but we have played well against England who also have an excellent pace attack, so all of us are confident the Indian pace attack will be properly handled,” he said.

The last time Pakistan beat India was in Champions Trophy Final in 2017. That was their biggest ODI win against India (by 180 runs). That win has given them the confidence to beat India again on Sunday.

“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. That win can never go off our memories, and it’s a big inspiration. We are well prepared for this match because India and Pakistan matches are exciting and demanding, and the whole world watches it.”

The match could wash out as it is raining heavily at the moment in Manchester and a lot of rain is predicted for tomorrow as well. Pakistan has never won against India in a World Cup contest.
