Indian skipper Virat Kohli has put all the batting records in danger with his brilliant batting. The 29-year-old makes it difficult for the opposition to get rid of him. He puts a price tag on his wicket and that's why he is on the elite batsmen list of the current era. 

Harbhajan Singh, who is also a Virat Kohli admirer thinks that bowling to Sachin Tendulkar was more difficult than Kohli. 

The veteran off-spinner praised Virat for his 20th Test hundred and said, "Sachin and Virat are different batsmen. It won't be fair on Sachin. Nobody is like Sachin and there will never be another Tendulkar ever in world cricket. I've bowled to both batsmen and I feel getting Sachin out was impossible."

"Virat is a great batsman, in great form and has been dominating for the past 4-5 years but I feel Tendulkar is on another level," the 37-year-old added.

Kohli is in the prime form and he is scoring back-to-back centuries. Recently, he became the fastest to stack up 52 international centuries in 350 innings going past South African Hashim Amla's record of 378 innings.

Indian skipper is in golden touch explained Harbhajan, "He was a 10,000 player (in terms of Test runs) before and now he is a 20,000 player. He is doing what others have not done before."

However, the Jalandhar cricketer mentioned that former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly is the best, "I feel Ganguly is the biggest-ever captain of India. He did a very good job to take the team here after the match-fixing scandal and all... Virat is only taking the legacy forward."

"Virat always had the hunger and any person who has the hunger, he doesn't look back. He is a champion player and is a role-model for all young players. Virat is a great batsman, in great form and has been dominating for the past 4-5 years but I feel Tendulkar is on another level," Harbhajan concluded.
