The never-ending debate of who's better between current India captain Virat Kohli and the legend Sachin Tendulkar keeps going on with new opinions every time. From cricket experts to fans, the 'Kohli vs Sachin' debate is never out of trend even though when there is no cricket going on.

The latest to share his view on the debate is Pakistan cricketer Umar Gul. Fortunately, the pacer has got an opportunity to bowl against both the Indian cricket big names, Virat and Sachin.

In a conversation with Sawera Pasha on her YouTube channel, Gul picked his favorite batsman. He said the master blaster, Sachin used to be his favorite but now it is Kohli. 

“It was Sachin Tendulkar but currently Virat Kohli. In the last 4-5 years, the way Virat Kohli has been performing, he is my favorite batsman. The way he has changed himself. His behavior on the field when he started playing against us to now has totally changed. All his concentration now is on his performances. The way he plays, I enjoy watching his batting.”

Kohli looks unstoppable with the bat every time he takes the field. A rough patch in his career doesn't last long as he finds a way to get over it every time. No wonder the 31-year-old is called the modern great.
