Australian coach Justin Langer recently compared Indian star batsman Virat Kohli to legendary player Sachin Tendulkar and Virat’s balance while playing shots is just "unbelievable". He also said that the man is having the same impact on International Cricket like Sachin had in his time.
He said: "I would like to have them both in my team. Sachin was an incredible cricketer. I used to watch him and it was like he was meditating. He was so calm and that's why his record is peerless," Langer said after Australia's six-wicket loss in the second one-day international here. "Virat is doing the same thing. He is so calm and so competitive, and technically, his balance is unbelievable. For him to play 360-degree shots in all formats of the game, his balance is unbelievable."
Langer also said that it’s a blessing that Australians are getting a chance to play against players like Dhoni and Kohli.
He said: "He (Kohli) is a great competitor and his concentration is extraordinary and for someone to make so many runs as he has, it is incredible like all the great players," he said. "Sachin and Virat, and MS Dhoni, who averages 50-plus in 340 games, they are all-time great players and our guys are in the best seats at the moment, playing some of the best all-time great ODI players and they will be better from the experience."
