Banned Indian cricketer S Sreesanth has joined the never-ending debate of 'who's a better batsman Sachin Tendulkar or Virat Kohli?'.

Recently, Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul were the ones who picked Virat over Sachin during their controversial appearance on the show Koffee with Karan. 

Bigg Boss 12 finalist Sreesanth shared his opinion on the debate and said no one can be compared with former Indian cricket great Sachin. He said no one can come near him. 

“Everybody calls him Sachin bhai but I address him (Sachin Tendulkar) as paaji for a reason. I respect Virat for whatever he has done but Sachin paaji can never be replaced or can never be compared to any other new or old cricketer. Sachin Tendulkar for the next 1000 generation will be someone who gave hope to the small cricketers like me never even thought that I could play club cricket,” said Sreesanth. 

The former Indian fast bowler was part of World Cup 2011 winning side and also the 2007 World T20 winning team. 

Sreesanth also opened up about his views on the controversy of Hardik and Rahul. He said a cricketer is respected because they are somebody on the field.
