    I will take Markram. He has failed in the India-SA recent series. But he did show a lot of promise. Looked good until he got out quickly.

    Markram has problems against spin. But I am sure he could sort them out. Still unfair to bash Babar. Markram so far in his test career has been a HTB.

    Markham was SA leading run scorer in the only home series SA won ever vs Australia.

    Babar is a good player as well. A great battle in next few years ahead.

    Markram has that authority about him.and can impose. He can be the next SA captain and could be like Smith.
    Babar is more softer and is in the Amla mould. Both of them are young and have the potential to score.
    In 5 years time I see both of them leading their sides in all formats and being the best batsmen in their teams. Overall, I think Babar will score more runs than Markram but Markram will win more games for his country

    Markram is an U-19 world cup winning captain. He was also the MOTS in that WC.

    He has been earmarked for leadership for years now. He was made captain against India for the ODI series in 2018 when Faf was out with injury.

    Azam should come good. He's has the wherewithal, and not always do players hit the ground running.

    What I like about him is that he has the calm air of Azhar Ali but also has the shots. Success isn't far in the longer format.

    Aiden markram has got to improve his game against spin.
    And also learn to construct an ODI innings.

    Babar looks more well-rounded at the moment.
    I think Babar is going to come good in tests very soon.

    At this point, Markram is several leagues ahead of Babar in tests.

    In odis, Babar is well ahead thanks to bashing SL and WI otherwise an avg of 38@SR 82 don't speak much.

    In T20s, Babar is good but not someone whom you would like to go with because he can't score fast and win you matches.

    Overall, for future potential, my bet will be the South African over a Pakistani.

    I like Makram but he could not even score well against Zim. He is a good player that hopefully will not turn out to be a HTB. His performance in Sri Lanka was atrocious and he needs to improve that aspect of his game.

    Babar has at least been great against WI, Sri and Zim. Whilst having a few decent averages against other teams. And Babar does his job in T20’s that ensures the batting does not collapse and we defend the total. Obviously this probably won’t work on truer pitch’s but it still means he has some impact.

    He is young. Performing in Asian conditions is a tough test for non-Asian batsmen. At this time, unfair to count that against him. But he did well against an Australia attack in SA conditions. How many SA players have fared well in SA against Australia? Look at averages of Kallis, Smith, Kirsten and Amla, that explains us.

    Overall, it all comes down to potential rather than who has done what at this age.

    Babar is doing a good job in LOs no doubt on it.

    Makram is unforunate in that he lost one of atg in develliers and is paired with an out of form/declined amla. In about 8-10 matches so much happened for that fellow. The thought of two established seniors right behind your back is a very good thing to have.

    To bounce back from that will take time as SA is in transition now. But he will come good. He has that spirit I believe. As for ODIs, I am not sure.

    But what can anyone say, if someone backs him the way raina, rohit, jadeja were backed for 5-7 years, he might become a SA great by the time he retires.

    Babar already has a team in transition when he entered the cricket arena, he seems to be in his elements now. It needs to be seen if he can carry his form against a top ranked side in tests too. Again decock started in a smilar manner, he is struggling to find a boundary for the last 1 year or so. So, it will be good to compare them after 2-3 years, when both would have completed 5 years in international cricket.

    Markham is not way ahead of babar in test cricket while babar is way ahead of markham in limited overs cricket. Babar azam has shown solid inprovement in test matches this year. He has averaged above 50 this year while markham has only averaged 37.

    If you take away runs scored agianst wi and sri then every player's average will drop. Despite this he averages 56 against Aus 38 against Eng and 32 against Nz.

    Markram is average. Not sure why South Africa have banked their hopes on this guy, when they have had the likes of ABD, Amla and du Plessis represent them in the recent past.

    Atleast Babar vs Rahul was a valid thread, this one is a joke.

    True. That performance against Australia was very impressive. He sure is talented and can definitely end up as a better test player but to be great I think he needs to learn how to play spin. Even in the recent LOI series vs Aus, he showed flashes of brilliance. SA really do need him to develop due to the ages of their batsman.

    Wow. Babar needed Sharjeel to hold his hand and hold the innings together last time we toured Australia, once Sharjeel got out Babar felt the pressure and followed pretty quick.

    But he is just a baby at 24 years old �� �� Cant expect him to win games for Pakistan right now.

    Watch when he is a 34 year old MAN and all these Markrams will have faded into nobodies.

    Watching Markram bat in Sri Lanka was one of the most sorry sights I have ever seen in cricket. It was like a night-watchman opening the innings

    There's no contest between Babar and Markram, unless Markram improves drastically. It's evident in the fact that a few people have to hold on to one shot played against pace to even justify the comparison.

    I saw the highlights of SA innings, it was beyond ugly. He is still young that's why I let it pass. Babar has never looked that bad anytime, anywhere

    One shot is not a prove of ATG potential. And in this case the shot itself was very ugly. His head completely fell towards offside.

    Why there is comparison between these two? One(Markram) has yet to prove anything where as other(Babar) has already proved everything.

    Babar is a complete batsman and one can easily put him in the list along with Kohli, Root, Smith, Williamson.

    No, Babar has not proved everything. He is yet to make his mark in Test cricket.

    Right now Babar is easily the best u-25 batsman in the world. I dont think there should be any debate.

    Hemyer may catch him up soon.

    I used to be a skeptic but Babar has proved he's not a hack. It will be a shame if he declines after this.

    I have been following Babar from his 1st u-19 wc in 2010 and tbh he is only playing to 70% of his potential till now imo, he will only get better from here. Now that Haris is also in, his presence on the other end will do a world of good for Babar.

    Heh? That's what a forum is for. To discuss different aspect of the subject. Can't see anything wrong if I bring about players from the same genre of a different category. Why be so much under straightjacket?

    Pakistani fans always overhype their players. On the other hand, we downplay greater achievement from the same category due to higher standard and expectations. WC 2019 and WC 2023 will show whether you were right or I.

    I saw Saad one time in a one day televised match and didnt look too convincing to me but to his credit he still scored 80 odd. Had good defense and off stump game so a better test prospect imo.

    Imo Saud, Zeeshan, Talat, Nasir and Saif are above in pecking order.

    Test matches Markram is clearly ahead with 4 100's and 3 50's at an average of 40. Babar seems to be improving so won't put it behind him to catch up.

    Aiden Markram has 1 ODI 50 in 16 innings and he opens the innings, that tells you enough. T20I's Babar Azam at the same age as Markram has become the fastest to 1000 runs and is number 1 in the rankings whereas Markram hasn't even played a match yet.

    Babar is clearly the better batsman and most of the people going against Babar are because he is a Pakistani batsman being compared to a South African batsman. Take both players nationality out the equation and you have to choose one for your team, if you choose Markram then congratulations on losing your match.

    You want to argue Babar is a minnow-basher? Fair enough. Markram has an average of 7 against Sri Lanka in 3 innings. Average of 34 vs Zimbabwe in 2 matches and a very low average of 21 against India in 6 matches.

    Markram's only ever career 50 came off a game against Bangladesh. Where even Imam ul Haq managed to score 83 against them.

    Btw on the debate of Ind vs Pak batsmen i do agree that Indian batsmen develop better and also agree Pakistani batsmen tend to fall and not living up to their potential due to various reasons.

    But these 3 batsmen Babar, Haris and Saud will have great careers I am sure about it except for God forbid injuries. They have too much class, backing of captain/coaches and great work ethics too. These 3 are here to stay!

    Dont understand the hype around babar azam.A good technical batsman -yes.But no team is afraid of him.Hasnt played any real noteworthy innings yet.Let him go to Aus and SA,then we'll see in tests.Let him go to WC in ODIs ,then we'll see.

    Yet you continue to hype someone like Markram who has done nothing in comparison to Babar. Based on one shot he played against Starc, for that matter

    Babar, Markram, Rahul are all great prospects. Rahul is older and has every stroke in the book but doesn't have the temperment. An excellent 20 or 30 is followed by recklessness. He also seems to have attitude issues that have made him out of favor with the Indian leadership. his reluctance to bat at 4 based on team requirement and they didn't do any favors by moving him up and down the order. Don't see a place for him until Dhawan or Rayudu are out of the team.

    Markram has incredible ability based on the innings he played so far, no matter how brief they were. A future SA captain and a top order main stay in the years to come. Needs to improve his game against spin and he will. Has all the ingredients to be a great but tends to lose his concentration after a pretty 30. It's still early days for him and he will be one of the top batsmen in a couple of years. Even Kohli was very impressed with his abilities.

    Babar is the only one amongst the three that has fully utilized his talents so far. Incredible consistency and the thirst for runs are his strengths. I believe he is limited in his strokeplay compared to the other two but ekes out every ounce of his abilities and has great temperment to go along with discipline.

    I think Babar can be the next Williamson but strengths in LOIs as opposed to tests. He will maintain 50+ avg in LOIs, 40+ in tests and will be an LOI great when he retires.

    Markram will be the next Steve Smith that can take the test records and will be a 40+ avg LOI player.

    Rahul can be the next Rohit in LOIs with 45+ avg in LOIs and a Cook in tests with 45+ avg at a better SR.

    In odis, Babar is well ahead thanks to bashing SL and WI otherwise an avg of 38@SR 82 don't speak much.

    In T20s, Babar is good but not someone whom you would like to go with because he can't score fast and win you matches.

    Overall, for future potential, my bet will be the South African over a Pakistani.
    Markram has only done well at home. Has done nothing to prove himself abroad so saying he is miles ahead of Babar is an overstatement because Babar actually has a few innings of note in England, New Zealand and West Indies.Not saying Babar is better in tests but neither is Markram.
