Re: Tendulkar vs Kohli comparison

On the other hand Kohli has not slowed down his style of batting and still plays strokeplay in the same manner or even better than when he began to play cricket .

In chases in limited overs cricket , there is no doubt that Tendulkar used to come under mental pressure while chasing and that he was not as great a chaser as Kohli . Kohli on the other hand seems to revel under chasing pressure and it brings out the best in him .

This comparison is however tilted heavily in side of limited overs cricket as strokeplay is more needed here . In test cricket Tendulkar is probably ahead of Kohli .
Kohli is ahead of Sachin in LOIS.
Sachin did not play so many match winning innings as Kohli has done already.

In Tests however, Sachin is ahead of Kohli by some margin. But Kohli's has started bridging that gap and if he continues, he can be ahead of Sachin in this format as well.
