India and Pakistan are considered as arch-rivals in international cricket. Cricketers of both the countries are often indulged in fierce fight among them on the ground. However, off the ground, they have high admiration for each other.

Recently, Pakistan captain Babar Azam has expressed his admiration for Team India’ star batter Virat Kohli and captain Rohit Sharma.

In a recent interview, Babar has revealed that it’s the ability of Kohi, Rohit to get the team out of difficult situations that he admires the most. The Pakistan star batter also hailed New Zealand’s Kane Williamson.

“Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Kane Williamson are my favourite batters in the world. They are the top players in the world. They read the conditions well, that is why they are the best. I admire them,” said Babar.

“The best thing I like about Virat, Rohit and Kane is how they get the team out of difficult situations and score runs against tough bowling. This is what I try to learn from them,” he added.

Notably, Pakistan have a dismal World Cup so far. After losing a closely contested encounter against South Africa, they are almost out of the race for semifinals.
