Ponting refused to compare Kohli with legendary Sachin Tendulkar

Regarded as one of the most successful Australian captain, Ricky Ponting refused to compare Kohli with legendary Sachin Tendulkar and said the India captain still has a long way to go in his career.

“Comparisons are hard to make at this stage of his (Kohli’s) career. You are being compared with someone who has played 200 Test matches. What you remember about Sachin is when he was finishing off. You don’t remember when he was in mid 20s,” he said.



“Everyone is saying exceptional things about Virat (Kohli) now but let’s see if he can dominate international cricket for about 10, 12 or 15 years which would be a sign of a real champion player.

“Sachin did that in all three formats. If someone can play 200 Tests its incredible. I myself have played 168 Tests but 200 is something else,” Ponting added.
