In a recent interview to former cricket player of England, Michael Vaughan, , Virat Kohli divulged a lot of behind-the-camera scenes. Apart from his views on incessant comparison on the cricket field, Virat also revealed an incident related to Sachin Tendulkar.
“It is a very Indian thing in front of your seniors you do not want to admit you drink or go to parties. Guys were very strict about it when I was growing up. He asked me for a drink. I said I don’t drink. He persisted. I said I don’t drink. Eventually I said I will have four ice cubes. From then on it was pretty easy.”
“I tried to fight it initially. This country loves comparisons. The moment I started doing well I was already compared to him [Tendulkar] but it is like chalk and cheese in my book. People come up and have debate and say you can break his records. You fight it for a while. You think why me? There are 10 more people in the team why do I have to go through this?”
