The run machine, Virat Kohli, is definitely one of the best batsmen of our generation. His consistency and high scoring rate needs no introduction. When you are at the top of the game, comparisons are bound to happen.
Sachin Tendulkar has set the bar too high for all the cricketers and hence, is always the first one to be idolized and compared with.
Yuvraj, hoping to play his first game for Sunrisers Hyderabad, made a wise statement to silence the comparison makers:
“Tendulkar was a great player and great ambassador of India and it is going to take a lot (of hard work) for Virat Kohli to come in comparison with that”
What a perfect stroke! Tendulkar and Kohli are two remarkable cricketers from two different generations. Comparison is trivial and not justified.
Yuvraj also feels that Kohli is in great form and is the best batsman of this generation along with AB de Villiers but still has to go a long way to become great.
Best wishes, Kohli.
