Sachin – Kohli comparison is obvious. Both are united by their quest for records that make their bios look outstanding. Study of their respective statistics shows how lucky India is to have yet another batting genius on its rolls. Sachin grew on us all like a phenomenon and endured the class almost until the end. Kohli’s innings has been no less than a blockbuster. His rise has been unprecedented. Captaining India in the five day format for about a year or more now, ICC decision to anoint him as World T20 XI leader has demonstrated his all round capability in the highly competitive world of cricket. Now Kohli is set to overtake his idol off field as well. With 10.2m Twitter followers today, he follows Tendular closely at 10.3m. ‘God of cricket’ would only be happy so long as Kohli performs.
