Sachin or Virat? This is a question that has crossed every cricket lover’s mind at least once. Sachin Tendulkar, known as the ‘God of Cricket’ among Indian fans, is India’s modern day batting master Virat Kohli Sachin has already broken many records and is on his way to breaking more.
With 46 ODI centuries, the 34-year-old star Indian batsman is just four centuries away from surpassing his idol and becoming the first batsman to score 50 ODI centuries. It is extremely difficult to choose between the two as they have different legacies and have played in different eras.
So, when the Australian Test captain, Pat Cummins, was asked to choose between the two great Indian batsmen, he gave a funny answer. During the teaser for the second season of Amazon Prime Video’s documentary ‘The Test’, Australian batsman Usman Khawaja posed the same question to his Test captain.
Khawaja asked, ‘Sachin or Virat?’
To which Cummins replied, “What? cooking? I think I played Sachin only once in T20. So I will tell Virat.”
Cummins also got a chance to put Khawaja in a spot and the pacer didn’t let the opportunity slip away. He came up with a few questions for Khaja. He asked him to rank the famous Fab 4 of the Indian batting line-up.
To which Khawaja replied, “I will go, Tendulkar, one. Dravid, ‘The Wall’, II. Three, grandfather. Ganguly, unfortunately it’s hard for me to say the same for Laxman, I like to watch Laxman bat, but before lefties.”
The captain came with another question. He asked Khawaja to pick two Indian players he would like to see in Australian colours. In response to the same, the Australian opener replied ‘Kohli (Virat) and Pant (Rishabh).’
Meanwhile, Australia is coming to India to play a Test series after six years. Last time Australia toured the Asian nation, they gave the hosts a tough fight and the scoreline was 2-1. Current world no. 1 Test team Australia have not won the Border Gavaskar Trophy in the last three editions, including two series on their home soil.
