It is the human instinct, that opinion may vary from time to time and person to person when we move forward in life. The reason behind this statement is that the toughest batsman, the great Brain Lara has expressed his fresh opinions on his favorite cricketers.
On speaking to this at the event of Brian Lara said, “He (Virat Kohli) is a (run) machine. But sorry to say Sachin Tendulkar is my (choice),” he said after being conferred the Doctorate in Science (Honours Causa) by the D Y Patil University in Nerul here.
Lara added, “But getting back to your question, no doubt there is a huge gap between Virat Kohli and the rest of the world in all forms of the game. Rohit Sharma might have got four centuries in this World Cup, (Jonny) Bairstow or whatever, if you want somebody to bat in T20, T10, 100 balls (cricket) or Test cricket, it is going to be Virat Kohli today”
Lara who scores 22358 runs in the cricket expressed his views as, “The (impression) Sachin left on the game is just unbelievable because he sort of bridged that period, where you felt that when Indian batsman leaves Indian soil, Indian pitches, they are not that good. But Sachin Tendulkar was good on every surface and all of the Indian batsman are good on every single surface today, I think simply because they took a page out of his (Sachin’s) book”
