Former Pakistani speed sensation Shoaib Akhtar reckons that Sachin Tendulkar would have scored more than 1.30 Lac runs if he had played in this era.
Shoaib Akhtar was never been Sachin Tendulkar’s fan during his playing days but since ever his retirement Shoaib Akhtar have never seen short of praising Sachin Tendulkar in any sort of time period. In his latest YouTube Video Shoaib Akhtar has revealed that if Sachin Tendulkar had played in this era, he could have scored more than 1.30 lac runs which is huge, in fact impossible achievement.
It is almost 34000×5 what he has achieved in his career. Sachin Tendulkar was the one man who stood for team India when they had no any special batsman in their team, but later on they got many players namely Virender Sehwag, Saurav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, MS Dhoni, VVS Laxman, Yuvraj Singh and few other names but before them, India had only Sachin Tendulkar.
Some Indian also have said that India were too much dependent on Sachin Tendulkar when he was used to play because he was so consistent batsman in their team.
It is the reason why people always compare Virat Kohli to Sachin Tendulkar because have had same consistency with the bat. Virat Kohli even is so much closer to Sachin Tendulkar’s international records. Sachin Tendulkar may see Virat Kohli replace him in few years. As Virat Kohli already has scored many runs and 70 centuries just 30 away from Sachin Tendulkar.
Some people call Virat Kohli as greatest ever batsman in the history of the cricket while some believe that there is only one Sachin Tendulkar and other won’t come ever again.
It is the reason why Shoaib Akhtar reckons that he could have scored more runs than these but he had faced more difficult bowlers than Virat Kohli. In Sachin Tendulkar era, there were bowlers like Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Shoaib Akhtar himself, Brett Lee, Glen McGrath, Mutiah Muralidharan, Donald, Shane Warne, Chamida Vaas, Lasith Malinga, Umar Gul, Dale Steyn, Morne Morkal and many other big names while Virat Kohli has faced only few names in his career.
There are many reasons why Sachin Tendulkar have been rated over Virat Kohli as better batsman, this was the only reason we have mentioned, although we could have named few more bowlers but let’s talk about Virat Kohli, he has faced Dale Steyn, Morne Morkal, Trent Boult, Mitchell Starc, Lasith Malinga, Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz, Imran Tahir, Pat Cummins and some others.
