The Class Above

Former Pakistani batsman Mohammad Yousuf recently made his remarks on Pakistan's cricket team in the headlines. 
Mohammad Yousuf had also expressed his frustration on several occasions when he named Misbah-ul-Haq as Pakistan's head coach. The former Pakistan batsman has now made a huge statement on current Indian teams, after having attacked Misbah.

While talking about a leading television show in Pakistan, Mohammad Yousuf said in previous Top Teams such as India, Australia, and South Africa; there were three quality players on their side. Virat Kohli & Rohit Sharma could not be compared to the Sachin Tendulkar & Rahul Dravid: Mohammad Yousuf. He said that India had Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Sehwag Virender, Ganguly, Laxman VVS, and Singh Yuvraj in the same XI. Yousuf also said that current players like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are not equivalent to Sachin Tendulkar's and Rahul Dravid's level.

Talking in the ongoing debate between Virat Kohli and Babar Azam, Mr. Mohammad Yousuf said that Virat Kohli is the number one in the world at this time. He added that in the future, Azam would also become the best batsman in the world, if he carries out his excellent style.

Mohammad Yousuf also said he had hindered Babar Azam before. Nevertheless, he was impressed by Babar Azam's success following the Australian tour. Yousuf also said that even in the test cricket, Babar Azam has now begun to score regularly.

According to the Hindustan Times, Mohammad Yousuf has just said he doesn't understand why the burden in Misbah has so much been granted to him. He said that the way the former captain conducts the team is not right. He said he saw no strategy that went into Misbah's management of this squad. Protection Status
