Virat Kohli or Sachin Tendulkar? England legend reveals who would he pick to win a game

Virat Kohli does not like being compared to Sachin Tendulkar. However, this has not stopped fans and experts, or even Team India coach Ravi Shastri, from talking and debating about these two.

Former England cricketer David Lloyd recently joined the debate and said that while Sachin was great, Kohli is the “more damaging” batsman.

He said that if he had to pick someone to win a game, he would go for Kohli.

“Sachin Tendulkar was aesthetically very pleasing, easy on the eye. But if I had to win a game I would have banked on Brian Lara and I see that trait in Kohli. He is somewhat similar to Viv Richards as well — he can completely rule a time. Sachin was a great player but Kohli can inflict more damage,” Lloyd was quoted as saying by Times of India.

Kohli is as of now driving his group in England in the progressing five-Test arrangement and has scored 440 keeps running in three matches with two half-centuries of years and the same number of centuries years.

Calling Kohli a “broadcaster’s delight”, Llyod said that the Indian captain is very polite off the ground but he is very animated on it. Llyod also termed Virat Kohli a ‘natural leader’.

“He obviously gets the respect because he is a fabulous player, but you can see that the emotion apart, he is very honest with his players as well. “There’s been a monstrous turnaround in this Indian group in the manner in which snappy bowlers have assumed control totally and I feel Kohli is the ideal man to create them. He looks a natural leader.”

When asked about India’s chance to win the series, he did not write off the visitors’ chances but said that it would be a difficult task.

India are trailing 2-1 in the series. They had lost the first two tests but came back to win the third match by 203 runs.

“The fourth Test between the two sides will be played in Southampton, beginning from August 30.”
