The young Indian cricketers, KL Rahul, and Hardik Pandya were the latest guests in the famous chat show Koffee with Karan. On the very expected lines, Karan Johar, who hosts the show, asked some controversial questions to the duo and they did not hesitate in answering all of them. One of those questions was to pick the better batsman between the legendary Sachin Tendulkar and modern maestro – Virat Kohli.

Ever since Kohli has started breaking the batting records, the debate over who is better between the two is started in the cricketing world. While Tendulkar is arguably the most accomplished batsman of all time, Kohli is well on his way of becoming one of the legends of the game. However, with time everyone will get to know that how much limitless Virat’s achievement will be by the end of his career but if he continues to bat in the manner he is doing currently, he can probably retire as the best batsman the cricketing world has ever seen. 

At just 30, the Indian skipper has already broken records which were not even thought of. Last year, he broke Tendulkar’s long-standing record of fastest to 10,000 ODI runs as he took just 208 innings to achieve the feat while Tendulkar had taken 259 innings to get there. He has also scored a staggering 38 centuries in ODIs and 25 in Tests. He averages over 50 in both Tests and ODIs which is the best testimony of his consistent batting.

On the other hand, Tendulkar hanged his boots only after breaking all the major batting records to his name. He finished his illustrious Test career with a record 15,921 runs in 200 matched with the help of 51 centuries and 68 fifties. His ODI career was even more impressive where he played 463 games, scoring 18,426 runs and made 49 centuries, each of them a world record.

Not surprisingly, the majority find it tough to pick one between Tendulkar or Kohli. In most of the cases, the cricketing personalities end up giving diplomatic answers. However, Rahul and Pandya had no hesitation whatsoever as both of them chose Kohli over Tendulkar without thinking much.

However, Rahul and Pandya’s answer has not gone down well with the fans. As a result, the fans took to Twitter to vent their anger and frustration. Here are some of the reactions:
