Watch this video before you compare Sachin with Virat
Sachin Tendulkar is not just another player on the cricket field; he is a part of our homes, an integral constituent of our everyday life.
Sachin is not just another legend, he was a myth troubling every bowler until they came face-to-face with the man. At 5 foot 5 inches, Sachin sent shivers down longer spines and even starred in nightmares of certain renowned bowlers.
Harsha Bhogle once said, “If Sachin bats well, India sleeps well”. This statement has no exaggeration. For a lot of people in India, Tendulkar means life. There have been so many people who fasted when Sachin batted. Many people celebrate his birthday as if it is their own. A lot of people relate their life’s incidents to Sachin’s scores. Sachin is like a son to a lot of fathers and mothers; a grandson to a lot of elderly citizens.
Sachin inspired a lot of cricketers of the current generation. Not only Indians, many international legends of the game have said that they were inspired by the Master Blaster.
The fact that Kohli was inspired to play cricket by the man himself tells how invalid his comparison with Tendulkar is. Tendulkar is not a legend, he is not an icon, he is not an idol.
He is an emotion. An emotion, which people who have witnessed his career, will never forget. No Kohli can replace him. No one can replace him.
