Babar Azam or Virat Kohli: Matthew Hayden Claims Who is The Best Captain After Pakistan’s Exit From T20 World Cup 2021


 Just after Babar Azam-led Pakistan’s heartbreaking loss in T20 World Cup on Thursday against Australia, Ex-cricketer Matthew Hayden pointed the difference between Babar and India captain Virat Kohli. Calling them opposites, Hayden reckoned Babar is not as flamboyant as Kohli.

Babar Azam or Virat Kohli: Matthew Hayden Points Difference Between The Two Captains After Pakistan's Exit From T20 World Cup 2021

“Babar and his personality are, as you see, what you get. He is very consistent. He is very stable. He is not overly flamboyant,” said Hayden during an interaction with Pakistani journalists from Dubai.

“They are opposites the way I look at it. Babar is pretty calm most of the time and goes about his captaincy and batting meticulously while Kohli is very animated, very passionate, and very boisterous on the field,” he added

Pointing that Kohli has achieved a lot more like a batter, “Babar is still young as a captain but from what I have seen he is learning every day and he is a quick learner,” he said.

Despite the loss against Australia, Babar and Co would be proud of the way they played in the marquee tournament. Going ahead, this team would carry the confidence forward.

Rohit Sharma replaces Kohli and would be in charge of the T20 squad. India would now host New Zealand for a T20I series which will be followed by two Tests. Kohli is expected to be back as captain during the second Test against NZ
