Pakistan all-rounder Faheem Ashraf has said he keenly follows his skipper Babar Azam and India Test captain Virat Kohli and tries to pick up even the slightest thing that can help him improve his batting. Both Azam and Kohli are among the best players going around in world cricket at the moment. In the previous two years, Babar has shown tremendous consistency. He has scored runs in every part of the part and in all formats to create a legacy of his own.
Meanwhile, Kohli is a modern-day great, probably the best when it comes to white-ball cricket. “I look at both of them and try to pick up on even the slightest of things that can help me improve my batting,” Faheem was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
Azam has been in great form in 2021. He was the highest run-scorer in the 20-20 World Cup and scored 303 runs. He also showed his class in the recent two-match Test series against Bangladesh, scoring 99 runs at an average of 49.50 in the three innings he batted.
Speaking about Faheem, he is slowly finding his feet at the international level. He adds a lot of depth to the Pakistan team owing to his all-round abilities. Overall, Faheem has featured in 13 Tests, scoring 632 runs and picking up 22 wickets at an average of 35.11 and 34.09 respectively. Following Kohli and Azam will certainly help him evolve as a cricketer.
