Not Sachin Not Virat, Former Pakistani Pacer Named Greatest Indian Batter

Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli, titans of Indian cricket, have long held the mantle as two of the greatest batters in the sport’s history. With records that speak volumes about their prowess, the debate surrounding who deserves the title of the greatest Indian batter has been emotional. However, an unexpected voice has entered the fray, as out-of-favour Pakistani pacer Junaid Khan boldly declares Rohit Sharma as the epitome of batting greatness in India.

Sachin Tendulkar often hailed as the “Little Master,” etched his name in cricketing folklore with a plethora of records. Holding the record for the most centuries in Test cricket (51), Tendulkar’s era-defining performances have made him a cricketing deity. His sheer volume of runs in both Tests and ODIs, coupled with an array of strokes, has long been a benchmark for aspiring cricketers.

Virat Kohli, the modern maestro, has taken the art of batting to new heights. Recently surpassing Tendulkar’s record for the most centuries in ODIs, Kohli’s consistency across formats has made him a symbol of reliability in the Indian lineup. His aggressive yet calculated approach to chasing targets and setting benchmarks makes him a formidable opponent for any bowling attack.

Junaid Khan, currently out of the Pakistani cricket setup, threw a curveball into the debate in an unexpected turn of events. When asked to choose between Tendulkar and Kohli, he chose the current Indian team captain, Rohit Sharma. Junaid highlighted Rohit’s diverse range of shots, his record-breaking innings, including the historic 264 in ODIs, and his prowess in hitting the most sixes.

“I will say Rohit Sharma (when asked who’s the better batter between Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli). He has all kinds of shots in his arsenal. Virat is a great player. But the way Sachin batted in a different era, he would have scored more than 100 centuries in today’s time. Everybody calls Rohit ‘The Hitman’ because of his incredible 264. He has also scored multiple double-hundreds (in ODIs). This is rare because he has done it more than once. ” Junaid said on Nadir Ali Podcast that he has also hit the sixes.

Rohit Sharma, affectionately known as the ‘Hitman,’ has left an indelible mark on limited-overs cricket. His ability to convert starts into big scores, multiple double centuries in ODIs, and a preference for demolishing bowling attacks with an array of shots make him a unique force in Indian cricket.
