The debate surrounding Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar is not new, as fans and experts worldwide have been discussing it for quite some time.
Despite varying opinions, there is a unanimous agreement on the exceptional talent displayed by both these cricket icons.
Chaminda Vaas shared his perspective on the matter, highlighting that Kohli still has ample time to achieve the monumental feats achieved by Tendulkar.
He emphasized that records are meant to be broken, and both players have excelled in their respective generations, impressing with their outstanding performances.
In summary, Vaas’ stance acknowledges the uniqueness of each player’s era while recognizing their remarkable cricketing abilities.
“Records are there to be broken, you know, you can’t keep records all the time. Different eras, different players, but the way I see it, Kohli is still young and has a lot of time. Age is just a number, and the way he’s performing, I’m sure he will do well for Indian cricket. We have seen different generations in which India has produced excellent cricketers,” Vaas said to Hindustan Times.
Earlier, the legendary West Indies cricketer Sir Garfield Sobers praised Kohli as well
“I think he is a good player. He has got the right approach, right attitude, and he plays very well. I’ve never been surprised by the amount of runs he makes,” Sobers said to Revsportz.
When questioned about Kohli’s potential to break significant records in cricket, Sobers offered a word of caution.
“Well, I wouldn’t say that because sometimes the game can become very funny. You can have some bowlers that are good too. And you have players who can do certain things with the ball at times that you don’t even think about. You have been playing often against these types of players, and if you are good enough, eventually you will rise.”
