    These comparison threads are being started to see where they are in 2 years time. Invariably they are not reaching the same level.

    There is no player currently in the same generation of players who is of the quality of Babar Azam.

    But there could be good contest in the coming years between Babar and Rabada (bowler vs batsman), both are the best of their age group and are one of the best in the world.

    So Iyer scoring the most useless runs against West Indies of all teams makes him equal to Babar? Jeez... I so wish my countrymen not act like the trolls they are

    Babar is a top order bat so it is not a good comparison.

    In Vijay Hazare Trophy 2018 (50 overs):
    Player Mat Inns NO Runs HS Ave BF SR 100 50 0 4s 6s
    SS Iyer 7 6 2 373 144 93.25 344 108.43 2 2 0 24 22
    (Mumbai)

    In the recently-concluded Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy (T20), he amassed 484 runs at an average of 60.5 and a very impressive strike-rate of 152.50. During the course of the tournament, he also scored two centuries including a 55-ball 147 against Sikkim which is the highest score by an Indian in the shortest format of the game.
    Ridiculous that this guy didn't get a decent run last year and yet guys like Rayudu and Karthik did.

    Yes meaning Iyer is the better player. Just as Mashrafe Mortaza was the better player compared to Dale Steyn because he was captaincy material. Also I believe Imad Wasim is also captaincy material hence Imad > Stokes. Almost forgot wasn't Denesh Ramdin captain of Windies? Hence Ramdin > Bairstow as well. Oh and the biggest specialist captain of them all Sarfraz Ahmed > Quinton De Kock and any other wicket keeper batsman that has laced up a pair of boots.

    So in conclusion if you are not a captaincy candidate you should retire from cricket. Dale Steyn should of never taken 400+ test wickets knew right from the outset he was never going to captain, also guys like Bairstow and Stokes who aren't going to become captain should retire before it's to late.

    Good to see you admitting this. Iyer can score lots of soft runs but will never be able to match Babar in technique or grace. Essentially their ceilings are way different. Iyer would have done well to score 10 centuries by the end of his career. Babar's ceiling is 40 centuries.

    Stupid comparison, you can't compare Babar with some random batsman.

    Can only laugh at this comparison. Iyer is the same age as Babar and has achieved zilch and isnít equally good against spin and pace. Bit late on the ball against genuine pace.

    Todayís attacked consisted of mithun, biplol, Mustafiz and al Amin. Hasnít played any top opposition or at least an innings of note.

    Letís see if he can survive a quality spell of fast bowling. Plz donít forget Babar is the no.1 t20 batter in the world. The guy averages 50 at 127

    No point of comparing at this moment.
    In 90's every new batsman from used to compare with Sachin... This thread reminds me those days.

    Babar is settled in all formats where as Shreyas Iyer yet to get place in test team, there are so many youngsters are competing for test spot like Shubman Gill,Prudhvi sha etc etc .

    Shreyas Iyer looks so good, he playing responsible and mature innings whenever opportunity arises.

    Babar is the main batsman for Pakistan but like how kohli is to India. Iyer is still trying to own his place.
