“Virat Kohli or Sachin Tendulkar”- Pat Cummins picks India’s best batter

“I’ll Go For…”- Pat Cummins Names the Best Batter Between Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar
“I’ll Go For…”- Pat Cummins Names the Best Batter Between Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin has set many records in the game that are just impossible to touch in his glorious 24-year-long career. But if there is anyone who can come close to him or can touch his records, that is Virat . That’s what makes this comparison more exciting for cricket lovers. And now, the Australia Test team captain, Pat Cummins, has also opened up on this comparison.

Recently, he was asked on Prime Video to pick the best Indian batter between Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar. To which he replied, “I’ve only ever played cricket with Sachin Tendulkar, so I’ll go by the name Virat Kohli.” Although he couldn’t name anyone exactly, which was reflected in his answer. Both of these Indian greats have achieved great success in their international careers and are admired by many former and young cricketers. However, Virat himself has declined such a comparison and said that Sachin is his idol and there is no comparison between him and the legend.

Speaking of the record, the “Master Blaster” ended up with 100 international centuries across formats. He is the only player in history to set that record, and behind him is Virat with 74 international centuries. He needs another 26 hundred to touch him. But in ODIs, it looks more convincing. Sachin has 49 ODI hundreds, while Virat has made 46 and needs only four to surpass the Indian legend. And based on his current form, it appears that he may do so this year.
