Babar Azam vs Virat Kohli is a topic that won’t die down any time soon. This will continue to make headlines for years to come, and the debate may never end. But let’s try. Both Kohli and Babar are absolute superstars and contemporary masters. There is no denying the greatness these two possess. Let’s break it down.
Current patch – Babar is king
In the current form, Babar Azam is leaps and bounds ahead of Virat. Once considered invincible, Kohli has shown signs of being a mere mortal who is starting to slow down a bit. Babar, on the other hand, was in the shape of his life, putting down centuries and half a century for fun.
Right now, without a doubt, Babar is at the top of his game, taking control of the copper ring and taking it to new heights. But it is so. Babar Azam should be left alone with his praises. Because comparing him to Kohli at the moment would be unfair to either of the two players.

If you followed the game of cricket even a little, you would hear the phrase – form is temporary, class is permanent.
Purple patch and more
Every cricketer has a purple spot where they hit bowling attacks and make runs like there’s no tomorrow. But the true measure of a cricketer is how long he keeps playing. Babar has long been at the top. If he can continue like this, he will eventually become the undisputed legend of the game.
Virat, on the other hand, was there and did it. It has been doing this for about a decade and is now facing a sudden decline. Yes, it’s bad, unlike anything we could ever imagine, but for a man who’s been this good for almost a decade now, the world can spare him any advice or suggestions.
Consider the numbers after the 2019 ODI World Championships. In the 23 ODIs Virat has played in, he scored 1,025 runs with an average of 46.60. During this time, he scored two hundred and 10 fifties. These are good numbers for those who were mostly out of shape.
Babar, on the other hand, scored 1229 runs in 17 matches with an average of 81.93, with seven centuries and four half centuries to his name. These numbers are not good, they are insane. Absolutely brilliant. If we look at the T20 numbers over the past few years, Babar Azam is ahead in this regard as well. In 2021 alone, Babar had 939 T20I runs against Kohli’s 299.

The debate could go on and on, but the point is that it’s nothing but a pastime. Comparing two players at opposite ends of their careers is not the best way. If Kohli can come back and show his best in 2016, maybe we can talk again. If not, then leave this dispute until Babar and Kohli hang up their shoes forever.
