    in SA he avgs 25 :shh but in india against SA he avgs 50

    anyway lets stick to the OP.

    Kohli and pujara are going to be the key against SA.

    Yasir Hameed also had legendary stats when he started his career, Atleast in tests, but he never improved his game plus they messed up his batting position

    Tbh Yasir was quite talented and should have been persisted and removed his weaknesses. Instead they changed his batting position and then dropped.. Recalled, played few games and then dropped again.

    Yeah thats a factor too.

    Axing youngsters after 2-3 bad performance and persisting with seniors because of the same have also played in the destruction of many talented players. ..

    I agree Kohli is very good ODI batsman but come on he is not the best batsman present on earth. He is not even the best batsman in ODIs let alone on earth. Hashim Amla Ameer saab says Salaam.

    Hashim Amla 100's/innings in ODIs- 6.64
    Kohli 100's/innings in ODIs - 6.94


    Hashim Amla's S/R in ODIs - 91.19
    Kohli's S/R in ODIs - 87.50


    And on top of this Amla is a far superior batsman in Tests to Kohli.

    So for me the current best batsman in the World is Hashim Amla the Cricketer with zero haters, what a man and what a player. :clap

    Hashim Amla averaging 53.16 outside Asia against the top 8 teams with 6 100s .

    http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/en...rderby=default;template=results;type=allround

    Kohli averaging 47.75 outside Asia against top 8 teams with only 3 100s.

    http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/en...rderby=default;template=results;type=allround


    If you exclude just Srilanka then Kohli average drops even further even in Asia too to 46.90 with 9 100s.

    Please dont compare Kohli with Sachin. No Doubt He is the best ODI player , No doubt he will be legendary but its too early to decide to compare him with Sachin . we need to understanding that nowadays most of the pitches are batting friendly pitches, ODI rules have changed, for ex : Powerplay, new ball rule etc. Its favors mostly batsmen. So therefore I still feel that Sachin was playing at the time when he had to face legendary bowlers from Pakistan, Aus, SA and WI in gritty bouncy pitches.

    He doesn't succumb to pressure while amla is a born choker . you can't expect it from amla to play the innings like kohli played , 183 against pak, that 133 runs against Lanka chasing 320 in 40 overs 52 ball century . Besides amla like most of the saffer batsmen (except devilliers) lacks X factor and is plain boring. now I know the reason why do you like him but please keep that to yourselves and don't shove your opinion down to our throats.
    good day

    Amla is no choker. Kohli IMO is the better ODI batsmen while Amla is the better Test Batsmen. But none of this makes Amla a choker, and you probably think he's boring because you don't like Tests. IPL has corrupted your mind

    You are very wrong if you are thinking that I like Amla because he is a good Muslim. Keeping religion aside he is a very very good batsman too. Currently the best batsman in World of Cricket and his stats is showing this. What do you mean by boring? Because he don't show emotions or he don't swear like the big mouth Kohli does not mean that he is boring. Just look at his strike rate better than Kohli, so how is he boring? I am not at all undermining Kohli but Amla is better than him in both ODIs & Tests.

    In my opinion Virat is a far more better player than Amla, No doubt Amla is class. the statement that Amla is " Boring " was a silly reason to explain his attributes. the way kohli is going, Im sure he will break sachin's record of most 100s in ODIs but than again Sachin being a great cricketer is also a very humble human being and Kohli needs to tone down his attitude.

    I already said that he is better in tests but in ODIs its different ,.as I mentioned earlier you can't expect amla to play a innings like kohli did against a thrilling high tension match against arch rivals Pakistan. He bats good when his team is batting first and there s no extra pressure but kohli is a different beast altogether . just look at the record, 15 centuries out of 16 in win. and yes I like the aggression in him ,maybe its because I m not a parent

    I know dude He is and by the way Galliaan baar baar achi nahi lagthi ek limit par .. im sure when he constipates he swears teri ma , BC @(*@#(@! .... regardless getting out on duck or scoring 100 he's always swearing. Once gavaskar said that he is very talented but he needs to control his foul language if he wants to reach greatness and that my friend is Sachin tendulker ..... take a bow
