Sachin’s career is over. We have the stats. He can’t improve them anymore.


Kohli has just taken off. We have to watch him for the next 10 years to conclude if his present brilliant performance is just a flash in the pan or he will end up among the Gods of cricket like Sachin.

And also if Sachin was greater than Bradman.

These players belonged to different eras. Comparisons are impossible. Bradman and Gavaskar played during the times when helmets were not worn by batsman facing some of the world’s most awesome fast bowlers. They never got so many matches to play which Sachin got and now Virat is getting. Bradman played in an era where the Umpire was God. There were no TV replays to help taking decisions.

So it is really pointless comparing them. Statistics can be used only for comparing batsman playing in the same era, and not when their playing years are separated by several decades.  Check Virat Kohli's 10 most amazing innings here.

Sachin was great.

Kohli is now becoming great.

Virat is a star, Sachin is an emotion!
