Harbhajan thinks Babar and others should learn from Kohli

Virat Kohli Naveen-ul-Haq

Team India has been in excellent form in the ongoing World Cup, winning all four of their matches so far. Their campaign began with a victory over Australia, and they followed it up with victories over Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. Throughout this winning streak, ace hitter Virat Kohli has been a constant and vital performance.

Virat gets his long-awaited century

Kohli’s influence on the event has been enormous. Kohli was instrumental in saving India from a dangerous 2/3 when pursuing a target of 192 in India’s first match against Australia. His 85-run knock led India to a stunning victory in Chennai, securing a good start to the season. Kohli scored another half-century against Afghanistan, demonstrating his consistency. 

However, Kohli’s long-awaited century was a really memorable milestone in his World Cup adventure. He showed amazing tenacity in the game against Bangladesh, refusing easy singles as India edged closer to win. This perseverance paid off as he achieved an undefeated 103, completing his quest for a third World Cup century and his 48th ODI century. A feat that Indian cricket fans had been anticipating

Kohli vs Babar: a tale of contrasting performances

Pakistan’s captain, Babar Azam, has failed to find his form in the World Cup. He has only one half-century, a fifty against India. Babar failed to make an impression in a crucial game against Australia. He fails after only 14 balls with a score of 18 in their difficult chase of 368 runs. As a result, Pakistan suffered its second defeat in four games.

Babar’s problems triggered social media comments comparing him to Virat Kohli, with admirers claiming that Kohli is in a league of his own. Harbhajan Singh, a former Indian bowler, also chimed in, supporting similar accusations. Harbhajan said on his official X account, “Kohli is a Modren (sic) days legend without a question . Scored runs in every situation and conditions and won game for India .. Babar and many others should learn from King kohli baat khatam . Koi shak anyone ? (case closed. Does anyone doubt it?).”

Kohli’s performances have been nothing short of outstanding, establishing the benchmark for this World Cup and emphasizing his importance to Team India’s campaign. Kohli is the tournament’s third-highest run-scorer, with 259 runs scored in four games. Meanwhile, Indian captain Rohit Sharma is second with 265 runs after scoring a century and a half-century.
