Virat Kohli vs. Babar Azam, ICC Tournament Records

After 1992, however, there were numerous encounters in the ICC tournaments between India and Pakistan. But two great legends of both teams of the current era, Virat Kohli and Babar Azam, have faced each other five times in the ICC tournament matches. We will give you the same statistics: Whenever India and Pakistan meet at an ICC event and Babar Azam and Virat Kohli face each other, what was the personal record of both? The most important thing is that in these five ICC matches, the team that scored more runs always won. But here we will not only look at this character, but all characters of both.

When did Virat and Babar face off in ICC tournaments?

Virat Kohli now has extensive experience in ICC tournaments. On the other hand, Babar Azam’s experience is very low compared to him. Nonetheless, these two giants have already faced each other five times in ICC tournament matches. Of those five occasions, the Pakistan team won twice and India won three. What’s special about it is that Babar scored more runs than Virat in both of Pakistan’s wins. At the same time, Virat outperformed Babar in the three games in which India won. That said, that number is pretty odd in itself. Now let’s look at when the two faced each other:

  • 2017 Champions Trophy (Group Stage) – Babar Azam 8 runs, Virat Kohli 81 runs (India won)
  • 2017 Champions Trophy (Finals) – Babar Azam 46, Virat Kohli 5 (Pakistan won)
  • 2019 ODI World Championship – Babar Azam 48, Virat Kohli 77 (India won)
  • 2021 T20 World Cup – Babar Azam 68 runs, Virat Kohli 57 runs (Pakistan won)
