The comparisons between Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli have stirred the cricket world for sometime and now Indian cricketers Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul have revealed their favourite batsman between the two during an interview on a television show.
The young Indian cricketers were speaking with producer Karan Johar in the famous talk show, ‘Koffee with Karan’.
In the rapid fire round, Karan Johar asked the duo who is the better batsman between Kohli and Tendulkar. And both Rahul and Pandya said that Kohli is the better batsman.
A video clip of this rapid fire round has gone viral on social media. You can watch Rahul and Hardik’s answer to this epic question here-
Sachin Tendulkar is considered by many as the best batsman after Sir Don Bradman. The Indian cricketer owned almost every single record for batting in international cricket during his playing days.
He is ODI and Test cricket’s highest run scorer, has scored 100 international hundreds, has smashed the most number of fours and is the only player to feature in 200 Tests.
On the other hand Kohli has been empathetic in all forms of the game and is scoring runs at a better pace than Sachin. If he manages to continue this pace he is sure to eclipse Tendulkar by the time he retires from cricket. However the cricket world has different opinions when it comes to choosing the better batsman between the two.
