In a disputed debate of who is the best Sachin Tendulkar or Virat Kohli, one more person has made an entry with a very shocking statement. This statement might annoy millions of Virat fans.
Yes, he is the former batsman of the most favorite opponent team Pakistan, Mohammad Yusuf. He said, irrespective of Virat’s brilliant current form, Sachin Tendulkar is the best player indeed. He is a god of cricket, he plays exceptionally good.
In an interview, Yusuf told media:
I don’t want to take anything away from Kohli. He is an exceptional talent. But I rate Tendulkar much higher because of the era he played in, against the best teams, fast bowlers and spinners.
Today, the quality of game yesteryear players possessed in the 90s and until 2011 is far much better than the current scenario. After 2011 World Cup the quality has decreased. Tendulkar was a world class player and you can judge it by number of runs and hundreds he scored against strong opposition teams in all conditions as well as formats.
I played a lot against Tendulkar and he was a maestro and produced match winning knocks many a time. I don’t think Kohli is facing the same quality bowlers or opposition.
The 42-year-old Pakistani batsman, Mohammad Yousuf who ended with an impressive average of 52.29 and 41.71 in 90 Tests and 288 ODIs, also slammed his home team losing the Test series in Australia by clean sweep i.e 3-0.
Well! all we can say is comparing these two legends is a shame in itself. It’s all about the time, where Sachin ruled the past era of cricket there Virat is ruling it out now. And on a fine day in future, someone other will do that and succeed Virat. Virat is just a successor of Sachin. No one is less no one is more they both are the legends of our country and we proud of our heroes!
