In a recent episode of Koffee With Karan, the duo of KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya appeared as the guest. We all know KWK is quite controversial. Ranbir Kapoor once said, “Karan Johar made us reveal the things that we have to clarify for the rest of our life”. In the same way, Hardik and KL Rahul said something that brought the Twitterati against them.
Virat Kohli Vs Sachin Tendulkar
Virat Kohli, who is one of the finest batsmen of this era, is breaking records after records. Therefore he is usually compared to the master blaster Sachin Tendulkar. Moreover, he is often pronounced as “better than Sachin Tendulkar”.

During the rapid fire round, Karan fired a question at the cricket duo. He asked, “Who is the better batsman between Sachin and Virat?” Hardik Pandya wasted litter time and answered “Virat”. Moreover, KL Rahul had the same opinion about this one.
Twitter Slammed Them
Lol that is why KJO gets paid the king's ransom.These two should have dodged the question diplomatically.
They are part of the Indian cricket fraternity and can't give away some foolish statements. Imo it's just lack of class and disrespect to the Sport in general.

More than the answer, it was stupid of KJO to ask such question. The answer was pretty obvious and rapid but asking such questions on National television is pretty much nonsense

This brought a tsunami of melancholic comments on twitter. The Twitterati were not pleased by that. Many of the Twitterati took a dig at KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya while some others called blamed Karan Johar for asking such a dumb question. A twitterati wrote, “More than the answer, it was stupid of KJO to ask such question. The answer was pretty obvious and rapid but asking such questions on National television is pretty much nonsense”. While another twitterati wrote, “Lol that is why KJO gets paid the king’s ransom. These two should have dodged the question diplomatically. They are part of the Indian cricket fraternity and can’t give away some foolish statements. IMO it’s just lack of class and disrespect to the Sport in general.”
No Point In Comparing The Two

Admittedly, there is no comparison between the two batsmen who belong to the different eras. We could probably give it a thought if Virat and Kohli were playing in the same era but that will be foolish to compare them now. The game of cricket has changed in the meantime. To illustrate, the shorter boundaries and the fielding restrictions have put the game in batsmen’s favor a bit.
Well, what do you say? Tell us in the comments.
Also, check why Hardik Pandya hid his car when he has no money.
