Brian Lara also stated the Virat Kohli should not bother about comparisons. The legendary southpaw added that everyone grows in their era and people should appreciate it.

If you talk about Sachin and me – you read a lot about it and you hear about the comparisons and it was not a significant thing (for us),” he said.
I am sure Kohli also does not pay much attention to these things. I think everyone gets it wrong. Everyone grows up in a different era and you have to appreciate what anyone brings to the table,” Brian Lara added.
