Powered by Firework Australian legend Shane Warne was the latest figure to weigh in on the Sachin vs Virat debate. The leg spinner feels that it is difficult to compare eras and hence it is unfair to compare the duo.Advertisement The Indian cricket team have been blessed with some of the greatest names to ever play the game and while Sachin Tendulkar is widely regarded as the greatest of all time, Virat Kohli is inching his way towards the pinnacle.Image Courtesy: WWONHowever, Warne feels that the comparison between these two is not justified and he went on to state his reasons ranging from the evolution the game has seen to other factors, Warne said to TOI:Advertisement “Very hard to judge when someone is playing and very hard to judge eras. Think about the bowlers in the ’90s. Different surfaces that seamed. Now they’re a lot flatter. The ball swung more. So many invariables.But to think that someone was better than Brian Lara and Sachin – in those mid-’90s – against Wasim, Waqar, Curtly, Courtney, McGrath, Donald, Saqlain, Mushy, Vettori, Murali, myself. You can go on. Virat is breaking all the records, which is great but I want to wait. See, what people miss is this: You can set benchmarks, score those many centuries, an average that high, score a lot many runs. But what people are going to remember you for is the way you played the game,”Advertisement The Aussie legend heaped praise on Kohli’s character and his role in India’s success in recent times. Warne added:“He’s fantastic. I love watching him bat and I love listening to him. I am a big fan. You know what he does? He stands up for what he believes in. He speaks how he feels and he’s real. He’s emotional, a bit too emotional sometimes on the field. But that’s the part of the charm,”Read Also:Suresh Raina rubbishes rumours about car accidentSanjay Manjrekar trolled for stump mic tweet  Advertisementlast_img
