The former captain is making his return to the national side with the first match against Pakistan. He will play in the Asia cup which is starting later this month. Kohli is struggling to get the runs on board. Furthermore, he is highly criticized by the people for the same. Kohli was not seen in the recent tour of the West Indies and he is also missing the Zimbabwe tour. However, The batter who is returning to the format is believed to be returning to his previous form. In fact, this might also be possible since the first match is against Pakistan. However, despite all the wishes for Kohli, Aaqib Javed has made some big comparisons between Virat Kohli and Babar Azam.

Javed’s view on Kohli

While talking to Pak. Tv Javed expressed how technically sound batters for example Kane, Babar, and Root can have some bad and rough patches in their career which is very similar to Kohli. Javed feels due to changes in his batting style. He is struggling, even more, he should keep patience and wait for the right time. Javed also said,

“There are two types of great players. One is players who, if they get stuck, their rough patch continues for a long time. The others are technically-sound players, whose rough patch cannot continue that long, like Babar Azam, Kane Williamson, Joe Root. It is difficult to find their weakness. Kohli gets stuck at times with those deliveries outside off stump. James Anderson has targetted that a million times. Last day I was watching him bat and I felt that he is now consciously trying not to play those deliveries from a distance. When you change your technique, these problems will surface. To come out of it, he can try playing a big knock without being conscious. That will help him sustain a purple patch for a long time,”
