Indian batting star Virat Kohli and Babar Azam is often compared for their batting approach and style. They both have reached some towering milestones in the past and broke the other existing one. When Virat Kohli was going through a lean patch the Pakistan captain took the internet by storm and tweeted “this too shall pass” showing his support.
Few people have even considered comparing Babar Azam and Rohit Sharma with all of this. But they might have to reconsider after what happened at the post-match press conference of a Pakistan Super League (PSL) game between Peshawar Zalmi and Islamabad United.
When asked about the troubles of Karachi Kings in the current PSL, Peshawar skipper Babar Azam executed a Rohit Sharma and responded with a sarcastic quip. This season, Karachi has lost four games, three of which went down to the final over. Babar, who led the Karachi Kings until the last edition, was questioned about the changes Karachi needs to make to make a comeback in the league.
Babar Azam said,”Main unka coach thodi hu? Aapse mujhse puch rahe hai unke baare mein. Aj ke match ki baat karte hai (Am I their coach? Why are you asking me about them? let’s talk about today’s match).”
The response was nearly identical to Rohit’s response to a query from a Pakistani journalist during the 2019 ODI World Cup. The Rohit had said,”“Agar main Pakistan ka coach bana to main bataunga, abhi kya bataunga (If I become the coach of Pakistan, I can tell. What will I say now).”
