Pakistan’s prime batsman Babar Azam on Friday revealed that he is gearing up for the much-anticipated clash of ICC World Cup 2019 against India on Sunday by watching batting videos of the Indian captain, Virat Kohli as the right-handed batsman takes inspiration from him.

"I watch his batting and the way he bats in various conditions and try to learn from them," Babar told reporters on Friday.

 

The youngster has been a vital part of Pakistan batting line-up for a long time now. He bats deep and makes sure to rescue his team whenever required. Of course, he showed form in almost all the matches that Men in Green played in the World Cup thus far.

Meanwhile, with the high-voltage India-Pakistan match just a day away, Babar remarked that he idolizes Virat Kohli,

"His (Kohli's) winning ratio is higher (for India) so I am trying to achieve that as well," he said.

 

The 24-year-old also said that Sarfaraz Ahmed’s men will take inspiration from the iconic win against arch-rivals in the Champions Trophy final,

"The Champions Trophy win gave us confidence and will also help here as well because the team is mostly the same and that win is always an inspiration,"

"That win can never go off our memories and it's a big inspiration. We are well prepared for this match because India and Pakistan matches are exciting and demanding and the whole world watches it," He added.
