Former Pakistan pace bowler Aaqib Javed said India captain Virat Kohli should look at his Pakistan counterpart Babar Azam to improve his technique.
Javed’s comments come after he previously mentioned that Kohli has a tendency “to get trapped around the off-stump” if the ball is swinging.
Azam recently overtook Kohli as the new number one batsman in ODI cricket and on Wednesday, he scored his maiden T20 International century against South Africa.
The 26-year-old made scores of 103, 31 and 94 in the three-match ODI series against South Africa, giving him a total of 228 runs at an average of 76.
As for the ongoing T20 series, he made 14 and 50 in the first two matches before hammering a career-best 122, which came off 59 balls and included 15 boundaries and four sixes, in the third T20 International.
“Kohli can improve his technique by looking at Babar so that he doesn’t get trapped,” Javed told Cricket Pakistan.
