England spinner Adil Rashid has chosen star batsman Babar Azam over India skipper Virat Kohli as the better batsman during an interview with At the Crease TV.

Rashid further clarified that his choice was based off of the batsmen's current form which he believed the Pakistani T20 and ODI skipper's was better than his Indian counterpart.

"It is a tough one that. So if you go on current form, I think I got to go with Azam. That’s current form I’m talking about. I picked Azam because he is in better form but they both are world-class players anyway," Rashid said.
