Indian cricket has always produced some of the greatest cricketers the world could ever imagine. The likes of Kapil Dev, Gundappa Vishwanath, Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar, Virat etc were the lynchpins of their own era.
The comparisons between greats or who are on the verge of greatness have always been a part of cricket. One such instance came up on Monday when a Twitterati asked Pakistan’s young batting prodigy, Haider Ali, about his favorite batsman.
As coronavirus outrage has put all sporting events around the globe on hold including cricket, all the cricketers are finding solace with their loved ones via isolation at home.
To interact with the fans, social media is the best possible way which is taken into consideration. Haider Ali is among those cricket who has not backed down from interacting with fans over social media.
A day ago you tweet that people cal me like Babar azam and not like Kohli.. so a controversy is here… Babar or Kohli or Rohit?
This is what Haider Ali replied;
Rohit is my favorite Batsman so far. It’s not like that All of them are equally respectable
Here’s the tweet:
For those who aren’t aware of Pakistan’s latest batting prodigy Haider Ali, he has represented Pakistan Under 19 team in the recently concluded ICC Under 19 World Cup 2020.
He is a top-order batsman who generally opens the innings or bats at number three. Talking about his numbers, he has escalated 218 runs from just 5 innings in List A cricket at an impressive average of 43.60.
In the Pakistan Super League, he represented Peshawar Zalmi in this edition and managed to score 239 runs from 9 innings at a fabulous strike-rate of 158.27. He is definitely the next-gen cricketer of Pakistan.
