Former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi named his four favourite batsmen currently plying their trade in world cricket. In an interactive session with his fans on microblogging site Twitter, Afridi named four batsmen when asked about his favourite in world cricket currently. Afridi took the names of India captain Virat Kohli, Pakistan batsman Babar Azam, Australia’s Steve Smith and England Test skipper Joe Root.
Right now, Kohli is on top of the heap without being flashy. He scores a fifty in almost every third match.
Only Babar Azam has a fifty-plus average (54.21) apart from Kohli (50.85) in T20 Internationals. But then, Kohli has maintained this average over 71 matches as opposed to 30 T20Is played by Azam.
