India and Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli has a ton of information to his title in worldwide cricket. Kohli has notched up over 20,000 worldwide runs within the three codecs of the sport on the age of simply 32 years and would possibly even go on to break loads of information set by Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar.
However, former Pakistan paceman Mohammed Asif believes Kohli is nowhere close to Sachin Tendulkar however Pakistan captain Babar Azam actually matches the Indian maestro.
“Kohli is a bottom-hand player. He is doing well because of his fitness and it is supporting him. The moment he will face a decline, I don’t think Kohli can make a comeback. In fact, Babar is an upper-hand player like Sachin. His bat movement is fluent like Sachin. People say Kohli is better than Tendulkar. I say no. Virat does not even come close to Sachin. This is my opinion,” Asif mentioned on CoverDriveCricket’s YouTube channel.

Hailing Tendulkar for his fluent cover-drives, Asif reckoned only a few know in regards to the legendary Indian’s all upper-hand approach whereas Kohli is a bottom-handed player.
“The way Sachin played was all upper hand and a very few people know about this technique. Be it coaches or anyone player. Sachin was so fluent with his cover drives, on drives pulls and cuts. No doubt Kohli has strokes as well, but his is all bottom hand,” mentioned the previous Pakistan pacers.
India will face off in opposition to arch-rivals Pakistan within the upcoming T20 World Cup on October 24. It would be the first match between the neighbours after the 2019 World Cup. Pakistan has by no means defeated India in a World Cup recreation.
