As we all know that Virat Kohli who did his debut in the year 2008 has emerged as the best batsman of the world. And because of his class, temperament, and statistics he has constantly been compared to the maestro of cricket Sachin Tendulkar. Yes, comparisons are a part and parcel of life, and it comes in every profession but is it right to compare him with the 90s cricketing legend?

When we compare their records with the innings that they have played then in some of the records Kohli is already ahead of Sachin, but the circumstances are a lot different from the time when Sachin played.

In 90s the fast bowlers were ruling the game, and they could fail the tactics of the best batsmen drastically with the extreme speed, bounce and swing. The bowlers of that time like Glenn McGrath, Shane Warne, Courtney Walsh, Curtly Ambrose, Waqar Younis, Wasim Akram, and Allan Donald were the toughest bowlers to play against.

The Indian team was so weak back then that when Sachin used to get out; Indian fans would just turn off the television set and go back to their work. Now it’s a lot more different as we can rely on more than a few batsmen to perform in the team. From this we can think about the pressure and burden on Sachin Tendulkar’s shoulders at that time. All of the Indian cricket fans having expectation from a single man, his records and performance has been like that in these kind of situation.

Because of these factors we shouldn’t compare the two, both are legends and have done so much for our nation. Let’s not compare, and be proud of the fact that the best batsmen of each era are of our country.
