Sachin Tendulkar may be regarded as the “God of cricket” but the performances put up by Indian skipper Virat Kohli, at almost every other match, force him to be considered as the best cricketer in the limited overs’ game after Tendulkar. Kohli’s ability to perform under pressure has been applauded by the who’s-who of the cricket fraternity. The latest person to join the long list is none other than England’s former skipper Michael Vaughan.

One of India’s most formidable batsmen ever, Virat Kohli scored a century against the Kiwis on Sunday, bagging not only the series but also reaching the milestone of scoring 9,000 runs in One Day Internationals. With this, Kohli set yet another record of being the fastest cricketer to reach this milestone.



Ranked among the top two players in all three formats of the game, Virat Kohli’s splendid performance has not failed to catch the attention of cricket lovers around the world. The list includes former English batsman and skipper Michael Vaughan.

Impressed with Kohli’s skills and techniques, even under high pressure conditions, Vaughan took to Twitter to marvel about Kohli, the batsman. In doing so, he also considered Kohli as the best batsman in ODI.

Many Twitter users, however, did not agree with Vaughan. Where some considered Kohli to be a great batsman on flat pitches, many considered AB de Villiers as the best.

One of the Twitter users wanted to see Viv Richards with the ODI bat! Sounds interesting, though!

These users were quite on point:

Now, that’s a dream batting side, isn’t it?

Tendulkar or Kohli? This debate will perhaps go on forever!

True enough:
