He will break all records for sure.The major difference with Tendulkar's record will be they would be more productive as match saving or for side's wins unlike Tendulkar's majority of which were more of statistics.
Well said. No doubt we are proud about Virat as a batsmen & his achievements. Having seen Sobre, adorable gentlemen cricketers like BS chandra & GRV, sometimes it is extremely difficult to appreciate on-field antics of Virat. One very notable comment is of Himanshu..When you look at the achievements of batsmen in these days one will be wondering what about hapless bowlers?? Just look at Hasim Amla who has scored 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000 & 7000 faster than Virat! These days, we dont have bowlers of the calibre of Zaheer Khan even, let alone the likes of Mcgrath, Lee, Akram, Imran, Shaun, Muthaiah, Shane warne, Akhtar & others.. It would be interesting to imagine how Virat Kohli & Rohit would have plate them!!
Batsmen like Ricky Ponting, Brian Lara, Sachin Tendulkar, Jacques Kallis and others had to face Raw Pace Bowlers like Glenn Mc Grath, Brett Lee, Jason Gillespie, Allan Donald, Shaun Pollock, Kallis himself, Lance Klusener, Nantie Hayward, Darren Gough, Andrew Caddick, Andrew Flintoff, Dominic Cork, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Shoaib Akhtar, Imran Khan, Chris Cairns, Dion Nash, Shane Bond, Simon Doull and Danny Morrison, Curtly Ambrose, Courtney Walsh with Extremely Challenging Conditions in Spin with World Class Bowlers like Muttaiah Muralitharan, Shane Warne, Stuart Mc Gill, Mushtaq Ahmed, Saqlain Mushtaq, Daniel Vettori and others who did not give The Batsmen Easy Runs like how the Present Day Bowlers are Leaking Regularly over 300 Runs in Every game today.
In the 1990's even chasing a Score above 250 was Not Easy as The Fielding and Bowling was Incisive, Penetrative, Aggressive and of Exceptional Quality - The Englishmen, Australians, South Africans, Sri Lankans and Pakistanis with New Zealanders & West Indies had Very Strong Batting, Bowling as well as Fielding sides and The Indian Team was Not so Accomplished and Professional back then.
Run scoring was Not so Easy like how it is now with Powerplays and Flat Pitches with Batsmen Favourable rules DRS System was not there and Umpire's Decision was like The Final Verdict !
So The Older Era Batsmen Had The Class to Face them and still score heavily. That sets them apart from Virat Kohli & His Generation of Batsme

one can also predict that he will join politics. one can also predict that he will be a businessman. one can also predict that he will be a teacher. one can also predict that he will be a doctor. one can also predict that he will be deepak kumar sonpar.

Well Sir Vivian Richards never had a great technique to and fast bowling was at its best around the world, still he was the best because of his fighting spirit and never say die attitude. Kohli has the same...he can fail but nobody would deny that he would bounce back even harder. Its futile really to compare players of different era. I wonder those fast bowlers would have survived physically the load of all three format of cricket. look at Stark, Anderson, Styne...they all have had injury issues.
