This is not a debate and hasn't been in the longest time

 

Kohli is a far superior OdI batsman than Sachin and has left him in the dust

 

These kinds of threads are an insult to India's greatest ever batsman Kohli. He is above comparison to Rohit or tendy or whoever

 

Kohli and MsD are India's two greatest OdI batsman. Case closed

:nervous: And we may still loose the game at home against second string Windies despite the two batting superbly at top strike rate.

 

Hang On, Commies said it was 400 pitch

Sachin never dominated the game, as his peers also have similar average records.

 

kohli is dominating the game and is the true legend of this format.

 

Everybody wants the glory of Sachin, yet every player would rather work to emulate Kolhi skills and work rate.

yes, His peers used to score mega 100 runs in first 30 overs and 220 runs in 50-60 overs.

Kohli around 60 average is the only one. Who is really competing with that? Zaman is just started the game whereas the rest of competition is much below.

 

Whereas Sachin has many peers of similar averages like Ponting, Sanga, Sarwan, Yousuf, Chandrapaul, Hayden, Kallis.

 

Take away the childhood memories or the emotions associated with sachin, one has to admit his records are based only on longevity. Relatively not many winning innings and unability to differienate himself from his peers....

Most are. Sachin is the most overrated batsman purely based on longevity but did't play that many match winning innings. He wasn't even most feared in the team. Everyone wanted Sehwag's wicket and then Yuvi. 

 

Kohli, MSD, ABDV all average 50+ wiht big sample size. Definitely better ODI batters than Sachin

date of birth please

Let virat finish his career then we can discuss. Right now he is at peak. Virat has seen sachin and improved what mistakes sachin might have done or try to do better than him. If same rules are applied for next 100 years there will be more batsman who will break even virat's record and might avg 80 in odis. This will keep going on. But i doubt rules will be same which are now. This are probably easiest odi conditions in history of odi cricket. I would want to see how good kohli performs till end & how long his peak will be.
