Tougher to bowl to Azam than Kohli, seamer admits Pakistan captain is more of a nightmare

Mohammad Amir said it is tougher to bowl to Babar Azam than Virat Kohli

Mohammad Amir on Babar Azam and Virat Kohli: “If you compare Babar with Kohli, I find it difficult bowling to Babar because of his stance because if I take the ball away from him he plays the drive [through the off-side] and if I bring the ball back in, he flicks it [through the on-side]”

Left-arm fast bowler Mohammad Amir has admitted that it is tougher to bowl to Pakistan captain Babar Azam than India skipper Virat Kohli.

Azam has been compared to Kohli for quite a while now, but the Pakistan star has always played down such comparisons.

Explaining why it is more difficult to bowl to Azam than Kohli, Amir said Azam has no problems playing his shots whether the ball is swinging away or coming back in.

“If you compare Babar with Kohli, I find it difficult bowling to Babar because of his stance because if I take the ball away from him he plays the drive [through the off-side] and if I bring the ball back in, he flicks it [through the on-side],” Amir told Cricket Pakistan.
