Meanwhile, since Kohli made his debut, there have been comparisons with him with the little master. However, Raj Kumar Sharma believes that the comparison is not right since they belong to two different eras.
“I don’t want to make any comparison. Sachin was a great batsman and has many records to his name. But the way Virat has shown consistency in all three formats is a big achievement. Sachin was Virat’s idol. Since both of them played in two different eras, they cannot be compared,” Raj Kumar Sharma told ANI.
“The T20I format suits them (West Indies). They can be dangerous. We saw the glimpses of this during the initial matches of ODIs and now after Andre Russell, Carlos Braithwaite and Keiron Pollard return, this will be an uphill task. These players can snatch the match from your grasp on any given day. Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit must fire on all cylinders since the middle-order is fragile,” Sharma added.
“You have to play aggressive cricket in Australia and considering the ball comes on to the wicket, Virat can play nice strokes there. There is bounce in the wicket but it does not deter him,” he concluded.
