    There are no moderators on ICF now. So you have to decide how it goes.
  6. 5 years back no one would have imagined that SRT can be compared any other batsman in ODIs so soon. For years this discussion has been avoided saying that Kohli has long way to go. But now Kohli is already halfway through in terms of number of runs and smashing all records left and right. He has got 32 centuries and it seems that he will easily surpass SRT's ODI 100s record. SRT Matches: 463 Runs: 18426 Avg: 44.83 SR: 86.23 100s: 49 50s: 96 HS: 200 v SA Kohli Matches: 202 Runs: 9030 Avg: 55.74 Avg: 91.73 100s: 32 50s: 45 HS: 183 v Pak First let's see their overall ICC ODI ratings Recently Kohli achieved highest ever ODI batsman ranking for Indian batsman surpassing SRT's 887. Right now Kohli is ranked 1 batsman with 889 points. So let's start with simple question - who's better batsman in ODIs - SRT or Kohli?

    How can we reach to that conclusion? A person can have enough time even on scheduled cricket tour.

    Khawaja faced visa issues earlier. https://www.smh.com.au/sport/cricket/pakistanborn-khawaja-refused-indian-visa-for-t20-tournament-20110809-1ikz4.html And other recent news https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2018/dec/04/cricketer-usman-khawaja-brother-arsalan-arrested-terrorism-hitlist How did being cricketer helped his brother? What did ACB do in this case? Being cricketer means nothing when it comes to scrutiny for nationality and origin.

    What's the basis of saying that they aren't professional and not applying common sense? You're expecting that since they play domestic cricket in England they would have already been vetted by cricket board at all levels. Cricket boards restrict their checks to eligibility only. So this isn't unprofessional, unless there is some special clearance and actual goof up. Till now it seems standard process.

    Sachin Tendulkar v Virat Kohli - who is better ODI batsman?

    And in that case you're suppose to report the post. Please go through rules of site, if you haven't already. I would suggest avoiding posting on forum before reading and understanding those since you're a new member.

    Hashim Amla Breaks Virat Kohli's Record With 27th ODI Hundred Yet another example showing how much centuries and centuries per inning are inflated this decade and doesn't necessarily mean equivalent inflation in quality.

    Sachin Tendulkar v Virat Kohli - who is better ODI batsman?

    So, the question is batsman who is so much ahead while chasing, should be at similar level batting first. Why is there a difference? When you have such discrepancy in stats, it shows that either one type of condition is tougher (like 4th inning in tests) or other type has been very easy (like Mahela's stats in Colombo).

    Sachin Tendulkar v Virat Kohli - who is better ODI batsman?

    I mentioned reason for better chasing. But why his batting hasn't been comparable batting first?
  17. Trichromatic

    Sachin Tendulkar v Virat Kohli - who is better ODI batsman?

    Difference of 800 runs and avg difference of 10. But if Kohli is better and batting has improved then why this isn't reflected in batting first. Any reasons? After all scoring is getting higher only since 2012.

    Sachin Tendulkar v Virat Kohli - who is better ODI batsman?

    Slightly ahead. That's far ahead and it shows that batting hasn't been massive upgrade from previous generation as some posters claim here. Otherwise it was the case you would have seen at least comparable number, not such huge difference. Inflated number during chases and way lower during batting first clearly shows that while mental toughness has played a big part, batsmen know that they won't be facing slower pitches and old ball to put a brake in their innings in later stages and can play normally. When this luxury goes missing batting first and they are forced to take risk, it mental toughness, better ability of hitting has taken backseat. Consider SA v Pak match yesterday. What was one poor innings from Amla would have been good knock in chase if SA were chasing similar total and they had won it even in 50th over.

    Batting first - SRT Fielding first - Kohli WC - SRT Finals and knockout matches - SRT Overall you now know whom to choose.
  21. What's the use of bowling at 140+? Aaron bowls at 150, should he replace Shami?

    Batting first Kohli Matches: 91 Runs: 4060 Avg: 49.51 SR: 90.50 100s: 15 SRT played 91 ODIs batting first since 2001, his performance was like: Matches: 91 Runs: 4846 Avg: 58.38 SR: 88.07 100s: 18 What Kohli has been doing batting first now, far better level was easily achieved SRT when he started playing in batting friendly conditions in 2000s.

    They travel a lot and their verification has already been done probably multiple times. It's people with Pakistani ancestry who get into trouble and delay.
