Virat Kohli has raised his standard in Indian cricket so much that now these two are starting to be compared. While Virat Kohli represents modern cricket, Sachin Tendulkar brings the memories of the golden era of Indian cricket to the minds of cricket lovers.
Suresh Raina has been a player who has played cricket with both players. In the 2011 World Cup playing team, both Sachin and Virat Kohli were with Suresh. In an interview, he shared his experiences with both the veterans and told how these two players are different and how they both have different views.
Suresh Raina said that both Sachin and Virat have scored very high centuries. Virat Kohli wants to win every match, while Sachin wants everything to be comfortable. Raina said that playing with Sachin is to remain calm and comfortable overall. It was Sachin, due to which we won the World Cup. It was Sachin, due to which every player of the team started believing that we can win the World Cup. He was like the other coach in the team.
About Virat, Raina said that he has been very brilliant in all three formats. He is a very good captain. He is hitting the ball brilliantly. He is very fit and positive. I am happy that I played with both captains.
Raina compared Sachin Tendulkar with FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi and said that I am a big fan of Messi. Messi is very polite. When it comes to taking care of people around you, both Sachin and Messi are awesome because in the game you really have to be polite.
