“Virat (Kohli) may be a terribly intense cricketer. He likes to require on the responsibility and expects constant from his team. That has very worked well and also the team has performed on the far side expectations,” Harbhajan said throughout a session at the ‘SporTale’ – sport themed literary festival.
While talking concerning the comparison between Tendulkar and Kohli, Harbhajan said they played totally different|in several|in numerous} eras and faced different bowlers and comparison would be unfair.
“Still I’ll place Sachin Tendulkar more than Kohli as a result of the kind of bowlers he faced were higher than what they’re currently,” said Harbhajan and mentioned that the quality of bowling has fallen over the years.
“Overall cricketing standards have gone down over the years (since T20 began taking lead). In a T20 match a team takes 4-5 wickets in ten overs so expects constant in a one-day match.
“On English pitches, one has got to look forward to perhaps 30-35 overs to induce 2 wickets,” said Harbhajan reminding that the players required to alter their approach to the game consistent with the place they’re enjoying.
Harbhajan was of the opinion that boundary lines have shortened with the flow of T20 matches, particularly with the Indian Premier League (IPL).
“We began to challenge the best groups within the world and registered wins too. This can be one thing that was carried forward to successive teams. Thus what Virat Kohli has at hand may be a task that’s possible given the sort of aura this team has created over the last few seasons,” said Harbhajan.
