Rohit Sharma Praises Babar Azam's Cover Drive

The cover drive remains an iconic and cherished cricketing shot, maintaining its allure even in the contemporary world of cricket. In today’s game, cricketing sensations like Babar Azam and Virat Kohli have become synonymous with their exceptional execution of this shot, giving rise to debates about who performs it most brilliantly.

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma recently expressed his viewpoint when asked about the world’s finest cover drive. He highlighted three names: Kohli, Babar, and England’s Joe Root.

However, in the past year, former England cricketer and commentator Nasser Hussain offered a contrasting perspective. He recommended that aspiring cricketers aiming to perfect the cover drive should closely examine Babar Azam’s technique. Nasser commented, “Apologies to Indian fans, but I’m inclined towards Babar Azam. I was tempted to choose Kohli, but there’s a slight distinction. Kohli incorporates a swift flick of the wrist, while Babar adheres to the conventional approach.”

In the ever-evolving world of cricket, discussions about the perfect cover drive persist, with each player bringing their unique style and finesse to this classic shot.
