Adam Gilchrist opens up on comparison between Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar

Who is better, Sachin Tendulkar or Virat Kohli? The latest to answer this billion dollar question is legendary Australian wicket-keeper batsman Adam Gilchrist who gave a brilliant analysis but not confirming which player is better than the other.

Recently, Gilchrist was in Mumbai for a promotional event and he showered high praises on the current Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli, even comparing him to batting legend Sachin Tendulkar.

Here’s what Gilchrist said,

“They are different types of players. Virat is the ‘next generation’ player. As an opponent you may feel like he will offer you a chance, but that comes with a risk too. He can take it away from you quickly. Sachin, on the other hand, was so clinical. So often you felt like you just won’t get him out, dislodge him. He would just build, build, and build. He is the best player I have played against, but I think by the end of Virat’s career, his record and the way he is regarded in the cricketing world will right up there, close to Sachin.”
