It was bodyline during Bradman's time, it was fierce fast bowling with minimum protection during Gavaskar's time. It was bad and deliberate umpiring during Sachin's time. And guess what is the challenge in the present day time? Too much cricket, too little rest and lot of computer analysis against each batsman or bowler.The game of cricket has become more like a chess game because of such indept analysis available on each player. Hence it is really unfair to compare players from different eras and demean their achievements. I hope people who are insulting Sachin or Virat or even Gavaskar got their answer.Anyhow, most of the Indians have bad mentality to demean their heroes (both men and women) and it can not be corrected by posting such messages, it will take generations to correct such deep rooted anomaly.
Please do not compare with Don or anyone who has played 15 years ago. Virat is nowhere near ( forget eclipsing and all ) the class of those players. And the bowlers they played against and the protectives they had and with no limit on bouncers, bodyline etc., Kohli is just exaggerated by his media managers. Don is Don, Kapil is Kapil and Kohli is Kohli. Let them remain like that only. Don't unnecessarily try to demean the greats of cricket.
by statistics yaa u can comp;are virat with any one? but where is bowler? please name any one world class fast bowler or spinners. nowadays even Australian pitch is behaving like subcontinent pitch. sorry atleast i can to rate him anywhere near to decades 90's great batsman like lara haq, sachin waugh brothers or desilva or even for laxman and dravid they truly played against the great fast bowler and spinners and on burning track abroad, can anyone can compare the Capetown knocks of 986 of sachin and azhar which was gem of the inngs.sorry guys . compare should be logically not ilogical
