“Virat Kohli or Sachin Tendulkar – Who is the best?”- Pat Cummins gives an incredible answer

Virat Kohli is among the top names that have played the game of cricket. And in the 150-year history of the game, there have been many superstars who have taken the game to a whole new level. Sachin Tendulkar was another name that took cricket to new heights in his era. He recreated many batting records in international cricket. And as an Indian fan, there has always been a big comparison between the two Indian greats.

And the common question that always sparks a debate is who is better, whether it is the “God of Cricket,” Sachin, or “King Kohli.” Many former and current cricketers, experts, analysts, and fans have shared their views on this discussion. And the most recent cricketer to weigh in on this comparison is Australian Test and ODI captain Pat Cummins.

Pat Cummins picks the best batter between Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar

Notably, whenever this comparison comes up, some say Sachin and some pick Virat as the best Indian batter. It is because of the kind of success these two batters have achieved in their careers. Meanwhile, the Australian skipper Cummins was asked about the same question during an interaction on Prime Video. Cummins answered, “I’ve only ever played cricket with Sachin Tendulkar, so I’ll go by the name Virat Kohli.”

Though his answer indicates that he was finding it very hard to name one player out of these two Indian greats. The former Indian skipper Virat has been in good form since the 2022 Asia Cup and has scored consistent runs, especially in the white-ball format. He scored two centuries against Sri Lanka in the recently concluded three-match series.

He has now scored 46 ODI centuries, while Sachin has 49 ODI centuries. Virat needs four more to surpass the legend. On the other hand, if we talk about the overall centuries, Sachin scored 100 international centuries, while Virat has scored 74 till now and needs another 26 to touch that magical figure.
