New Delhi. Babar Azam is currently ranked No. 1 in the ICC T20 rankings as a batsman. Both Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma may not be in the top-10, but they are one of the world’s legendary batsmen. But these three players are failing miserably in the domestic T20 league. Babar Azam could not show amazing in the 7th season of Pakistan Super League held recently. Due to this the team had 8 consecutive defeats. At the same time, Rohit Sharma has not been able to score a single half-century in IPL 2022. This is his worst performance in the history of T20 league. The team lost the first 8 matches and was knocked out of the knockout round of the 15th season of the T20 league.
Virat Kohli and Babar Azam are always compared. The performance of both has been excellent. Not only this, these legendary players of India and Pakistan are also the highest run scorers in the T20 league. Kohli has scored the highest 6519 runs in IPL while Babar has scored the highest 2413 runs in PSL. No other batsman has touched the 2,000-run mark in PSL. But the question of everyone is that why are they failing again. Sometimes this also happens due to deteriorating rhythm. Even the captain and coach of the team are saying about Kohli that he is close to a big innings.
Babar makes more than 50 runs in every third innings
If we look at Babar Azam’s PSL record, he has scored 2413 runs in 66 innings of 68 matches at an average of 42. Has scored 23 fifties. That is, on an average he scores more than 50 runs in every third innings. But in 10 innings of the current season, he scored 343 runs at an average of 38 and scored only 2 half-centuries. That is, he scored a half-century in every 5th innings. His average also declined and the team could not reach the knockout rounds.
Only 5 sixes in Kohli’s name
Virat Kohli has also scored more than 3200 runs in T20 Internationals. But his IPL 2022 records are very shocking. He has been able to score only 236 runs in 13 innings of the current season at an average of 20. Has scored a fifty. Not only this, he has been able to hit only 5 sixes. Earlier, he had hit the least 4 sixes in 2008. His average is also the lowest in 15 years. However, there is still hope of Royal Challengers Bangalore reaching the knockout.
Rohit could not score a half-century for the first time
Rohit Sharma is one of the most successful captains in IPL history. He has made Mumbai champion 5 times. But in the current season, he has not been able to score a half-century so far. He could not score a half-century in any season for the first time. However, there is still one match left. He scored at least one half-century in 2021 and 2009. So far, he has been able to score only 266 runs in 13 matches at an average of 21. Has played the biggest innings of 48 runs.
