Both Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli are the legends of the Indian cricket. They have done things that haven’t been done before and earned a fame and respect for themselves as well as their country. Recently, Virat Kohli’s name was included in the Time’s list of 100 Most Influential People of 2018.
On this occasion, Kohli thanked Master Blaster for writing his profile in the list. Take a look at Virat Kohli’s tweet below:

On the other hand, Virat Kohli’s idol and guru Sachin Tendulkar had praised him in his profile. Sachin wrote:
“The U-19 World Cup in 2008 was very important for India, as it would define the next bunch of youngsters who would go on to represent the nation. That was the first time I watched this young, passionate player lead India. Today Virat Kohli is a household name and a champion in cricket. Even back then, his hunger for runs and consistency was remarkable, something that has become the hallmark of his game.”
So from gestures of both Virat and Sachin, it is quite clear that they share a good rapport with each other. And we got another proof of the same when Sachin Tendulkar said that he will share a bottle of champagne with Virat Kohli. But there is still some time for that since Tendulkar imposed a condition on that.
Tendulkar said that he will share a bottle of champagne with Kohli when the latter breaks Sachin’s record of most ODI centuries. Tendulkar holds the record of 49 centuries in ODIs and has promised to celebrate with champagne with Virat when he scores 50 centuries in ODIs. As of now, Virat has scored 35 centuries in ODIs.
At the launch of Boria Majumdar’s book ‘Eleven Gods and a Billion Indians’, Tendulkar was asked if he would send 50 bottles of champagne to Kohli if the latter breaks his record. To this Master Blaster said:
“I will go and share a bottle with him if he breaks my record. I won’t send him champagne bottles; I will go there and share it with him.”
Don’t you think this is really sweet of Tendulkar who himself is known as the God of Cricket? Do share your views with us in the comments section!
