While Virat Kohli is the toast of world cricket today, Sachin Tendulkar is considered to be one of the greatest batsman of all time. So, comparisons between the two are inevitable.

But how Shane Warne has juxtaposed Kohli and Tendulkar might just surprise you.

The legendary Australian leg-spinner has claimed that the current India captain is simply the best while chasing – even better than Tendulkar – and that he will be spoken about in the same breath as the latter once he calls a time on his career.

“I think the way Virat plays and you look at his numbers and it’s uncanny how many times he has got hundreds in ODI cricket chasing totals down,” Warne was quoted as saying by India Today.

“I don’t think anyone, not even Sachin could do what Virat’s done.

“We know Sachin and Brian Lara were the two best players of all time in our generation. But Virat and AB de Villiers; it’s very difficult to separate those guys.

“Virat is as good as anyone that I have seen play the game. Wonderful, terrific player, I love his energy and passion.

“I am sure when he finishes in ten years or so he will be spoken about in the same breath as Sachin.”

Kohli is currently participating at the Indian Premier League, leading the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
