Ten reasons why Kohli should not be compared to Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin’s debut at 16: Sachin Tendulkar made his debut at a very tender age of 16 years, an age where most of the Cricketers play the under 19’s. At an age where most of us do nothing other than watching cartoons or TV shows, Sachin represented the Nation.

He had to face the world’s strongest and the fastest bowlers of all-time. Kohli made his first class debut at an age of 18. He played his first ODI in 2008 at 18 years while he played his first test in 2011.

Sachin, the all-rounder: Sachin has always had the love for bowling. He was a good spinner who could provide breakthroughs at critical situations. There are few instances where Sachin won matches for India with his bowling. He loves rolling his arm and does that very often, even after he retired he used to bowl in the nets of Mumbai Indians.

Sachin has two five wicket hauls in ODI cricket, which is a better record than Shane Warne. Sachin used to bowl both leg and off spin.

He would have become one of the best all-rounders if it wasn’t for his shoulder injury, after which he was advised not to roll his arm. Kohli, on the other hand is not a great bowler. Although he rolls his arm rarely, he picked few wickets.
