Virat Kohli: Babar Azam – Virat Kohli’s fitness is second to none, and many experts rave about the same. Former Pakistan all-rounder Abdul Razzaq is the latest to become a fan of Kohli’s work ethic and feels the former India captain is better than Babar Azam. While Razzaq lauded the Pakistan captain for being a terrific batter and a leader, he feels Babar should work on his fitness more. Kohli’s fitness is often the talk of the town due to him playing all the formats of the game without getting injured. Follow IPL 2023 Live Updates with InsideSport.IN.
“Virat is an outstanding and fantastic player. The best part is that he takes his team along. His intent is always positive. He utilizes his skills very well. The main thing is that his fitness is world-class. Babar Azam’s fitness is not like that of Virat Kohli. Babar needs to work more on his fitness,” Razzaq said to Times of India.

Virat Kohli vs Babar Azam: Why Razzaq feels Babar Azam needs to work on his fitness more?
- Kohli very rarely gets injured and keeps scoring runs in all formats due to his insane level of consistency.
- The former India captain was able to achieve that kind of consistency due to fitness.
- Kohli has brought a cultural change in cricket with regard to fitness, and calorie intake.
- While Azam is a great batter, he has not able to show consistency like Kohli in all formats of the game.
- Razzaq opines with age by Babar’s side, he should concentrate on fitness.
“Babar is Pakistan’s number one player. Babar is the world’s number 1 batter (ODIs). Be it in any format of the game, Test ODI, or T20I, he has been consistently performing well. Every country has one player like (Babar Azam and Kohli). We don’t need to compare them. It is like asking, who is better – Kapil dev or Imran Khan? These comparisons are not good. Kohli is a good player in India, and Babar is good in Pakistan. Kohli is a world-class player, Babar is too. But Kohli’s fitness is way better than Babar.”
