No and I don't think he will ever. Those who saw Sachin bat and with some knowledge about cricket know the answer. But Dhoni chamchas who want to take the heat off their idol will find this thread a good opportunity to divert attention. Divide and rule is the mantra of Dhoni/CSK fans. Pit SRT against X, Y, Z, then do the same with Kohli....rinse repeat, not falling for this one @velu Divide all fanbases so that CSK/MSD fanbase alone is in majority, right naa?

Kohli is not even the best batsman in the world today. 

He can still be better than Tendulkar despite not being the best batsman of the world, which will mean other batsman is just even better than the both. 

 

PS: Though I am not saying he is.

my metric for comparing batsman is to compare them to their peers. that's the scientific approach and makes the most sense to my mind. Tendulkar was the best batsman of this time. there was no fab 4 rubbish or fence sitting. he was out there on his own. bradman is better than the rest not because is better in the normal sense of the word 'is' but because he was twice as good as his peers.

can anyone ever remember saying ' Tendulkar needs to rectify this or that'? didn't think so. apart from a few pakistanis that invented the *wit concept of a match winner to elevate Inzamam

in what aspects Tendulkar was so better than his peers? His peers were Ponting, Lara, Kallis, Sanga.

"Indian Cricket got Richest And Respect" because of Sachin while Kohli is taking it back towards bankruptcy. 

The 900 points is down to efforts of Sachin and MSD, but sooner or later, Corporate world will realise, "Kohli is bad Investment".

longevity,more or less uniform record in all countries,more or less uniform record against all countries, a lot of aggressive inns, a lot of defensive inns,  not much difference between home and away record,good track record against all sorts of bowling, great record against best team of their period especially away, brilliant  in one dayers too with almost all said above factors inclusive etc etc .I am sure the list may have a lot other factors too.

his legacy won't change much from here on. 

It could change quite a bit with one monster series with the bat in England, leading India to a series win.

Sachin's batsmanship is perfection in itself. In another thread, I said that if batsmen were automobiles then Sachin is like the Range Rover. It is capable of withstanding and dominating any terrain, any weather and can travel any distance. Same way Sachin's batsmanship is capable of dominating any attack, any format and any conditions. Kohli is no where near this class.

 

But Kohli has more killer instinct than Sachin, I'll give him that. Kohli's technique is far from perfect. He seems organised like Kumar Sangakkara, but he is not.

But Kohli has more willpower than Sachin, I'll give him that. Kohli's technique is far from perfect. He seems organised like Kumar Sangakkara, but he is not. 

 

Kohli has a 10 times better team backing him, and the overall confidence level of the Indian team has changed starting from 2000, which during Sachin's era wasnt there. Had Sachin been batting today with this team, and with this kind of bowlers, it would have gone crazy!
