Virat Kohli vs Babar Azam | Full Stats Comparison T20, ODI and Tests | The Real GOAT

If you are a true cricket lover, one question will always be on your mind: Who is the best, Virat Kohli or Babar Azam? In modern-day cricket, when India vs Pakistan is considered one of the biggest cricket rivalries, the stats comparison also starts on the individual player level. The stats comparison between top players is from the beginning of the world cricket. Don Bradman vs. Viv Richards, Imran Khan vs. Kapil Dev, Curtly Ambrose vs. Wasim Akram, and much more, the list will never end.

But in today’s era, the top comparison that every cricket analyst makes is Virat Kholi vs Babar Azam. Both are top-order right-handed batters who have most things in common, e.g., their records-chasing abilities.

If we look at the overall stats and records of the two players, we can find out that Virat Kohli has made many impressive records, which no other batter has done in the history of cricket. Soon, Virat Kohli will surpass Sachin Tendulkar’s 100 centuries record. On the other hand, Babar Azam also rises as one of the best Batters in the world.

As we all know, the T20 World Cup 2024 is about to start soon, and on 9 June 2024, fans will be able to see Virat and Babar again in action in this mega event. Below, we have given a detailed comparison of the stats of these two top-notch players who are now conquering the world of cricket.

Virat Kohli made his international test debut in 2011, played over 100 test matches, and scored 8676 runs with an average of 49.30. Babar Azam has played 49 test matches and scored 3772 runs with an average of 47.75.

In ODIs as well, Virat Kohli is ahead of Babar Azam as he is close to 13000 International runs with a difference of 8000 runs compared to Babar Azam. There is a clear stats difference due to the difference in both players’ debuts, but certainly, Babar Azam is proving themselves and chasing records in the cricket world.

Meanwhile, in the IPL, Virat Kohli scored 7,263 runs in 237 matches, and in the PSL, Babar Azam scored 2,935 runs in 79 matches with an average of 43.80.

PSL 2024 Team Retentions

In November 2024, PCB announced the finalization of the players’ trades and retentions to the franchises. All six franchises have made successful retentions within the maximum limit as per the rules. For PSL 9, franchises like Islamabad United, Karachi Kings, and Peshawar Zalmi have made some interesting trades to make their team better than their last edition team.

ICC T20 World Cup 2024 Teams and Qualifiers

For the first time in the history of the T20 World Cup, 20 teams will compete and fight for the World Cup Trophy. The qualification of these teams depends on the World Cup 2022 and other qualifications matches. T20 World Cup Qualifiers include 11 test cricket-playing nations and 9 others.

The top eight teams from World Cup 2022 and the two hosts, including West Indies and USA, automatically qualified for the T20 World Cup 2024. Meanwhile, the best-ranked teams in the ICC T20 Rankings who never secured a position in the finals got the remaining two automatic qualification spaces.

For the remaining 8 teams, ICC organized regional qualifier matches, and from Europe, Africa, and Asia, two teams each made their place in the World Cup tournament. At the same time, one team from East Asia-Pacific and America managed to write their names in the World T20 Qualifier.

In July 2023, Papua New Guinea defeated the Philippines by 100 runs and became the first team to qualify for the Cricket World Cup 2024 East Asia-Pacific Qualifier. While from the Europe Region Qualifiers, Ireland and Scotland finished in the top two on the points table. In the Americas Qualifier Final, Canada defeated Bermuda in October 2023 and joined the World Cup race. Two teams, including Nepal and Oman, reached the finals of Asia Qualifiers. From African qualifiers, Namibia and Uganda finished at the top by defeating Tanzania and Rwanda.

Zimbabwe is the only test-playing nation that could not secure its position for the World Cup 2024. See the ICC World Cup Qualifiers Table below for more details.
