The legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar feels that he doesn’t see any similarities between him and Virat Kohli. He also believes that every batsmen are different nature of batting.
Sachin Tendulkar also praised Virat Kohli for his performance as a Test captain for Team India. He said, “I don’t see similarities in the playing style. He (Kohli) has his own style. He likes to flick the bat in hand before every ball. It’s part of his preparation. I never did that, each batsman does things differently. I feel the new generation has more awareness about health.”
“All the things are changing when it comes to approaching any sport. There’s more study behind everything, whether it comes to diet, or your training pattern. That’s clearly showing,” he added.
Virat Kohli is now at his top form in the ongoing Test series against England. He is also the leading run scorer of this series. Due to his consistency in batting, he is now at the rank 3 in ICC Test Batsmen rankings.
Tendulkar also believed Kohli is always been hungry and a good student of the cricket. His commitment has been very good, he’s surely taken the ‘fitness factor’ to a different level. It’ll have a good effect on the team.
“He was a very open-hearted guy, and was hungry to learn, and was passionate. When you play for India, you need to be passionate. That’s what he embodies. He has discipline, dedication and concentration,“ Sachin told.
