Virat Kohli and Steve Smith are often compared with each other, and it always sparks a debate as to who is a better batsman amongst the two. Some say Kohli is more magnificent while some choose Smith over the Indian captain.
Pakistan’s opening batsman Ahmed Shehzad has also jumped in this discourse, as he recently picked the better batsmen between Kohli and Smith.
In an interview for Cricket Pakistan, the right-handed batsman named Smith as a better player in Test cricket, whereas Kohli in the limited-overs format.
“I think Smith in Test, while Kohli in white-ball cricket,” said Shehzad.
Shehzad was also asked about his cricketing idol, to which he answered: “I guess Brian Lara, I like him very much the way he has dominated in world cricket.”
When asked about his favorite actress, the 28-year-old named Bollywood diva Kareena Kapoor Khan.
Recently, Pakistan announced the T20I squad for Bangladesh series, where Shehzad wasn’t selected, and it angered his fans as well as some former cricketers.
Former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen looked annoyed with the exclusion of Shehzad in Pakistan’s squad, and he expressed it on Twitter.
“Just seen the team that PAKISTAN have picked to play Bangladesh. How on this planet can @iamahmadshazhad NOT be in that squad??? His PSL numbers and domestic number are so much better than the batter picked ahead of him! STUPID!” tweeted Pietersen.
