Former Pakistani batsman Mohammad Yousuf feels that the likes of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma cannot be compared with the legendary Indian batsmen such as Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid. Yousuf, who played a lot of cricket against the vintage Indian team, said that the modern-day Indian team does not have as classical batsmen as in the past.
“In the past, teams, such as India, Australia, and South Africa, had three-four quality players in the side. India, for example, had players like (Rahul) Dravid, Sachin (Tendulkar), (Virender) Sehwag, (Sourav) Ganguly, (VVS) Laxman and Yuvraj Singh. These six batsmen were playing in a single team.” Yousuf said.
“The current Indian team does not have such batsmen. You can't compare the current players (such as Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma) with the class of Sachin and Dravid.”, he concluded.
Currently, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are the top performers of world cricket. While Kohli owns staggering records, the Hitman has many records to his name including 3 double-centuries in ODI cricket.
