Who is good at chasing: Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar

In the world of cricket, there have been two players who have been at the top of their game for a very long time. Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar are two cricketers who have played for over 20 years.

Virat Kohli has broken many records in his career, including being the youngest captain to win an ICC tournament and leading India to its first-ever Test series victory in Australia. He is also the fastest batsman to score a hundred international centuries in all formats of cricket.

Sachin Tendulkar has not only set numerous world records but he is also the highest run-scorer in both Test and one-day international cricket as well as having scored more runs than any other player in Twenty20 Internationals.

Who is good at chasing, Virat Kohli Or Sachin Tendulkar?

Let's compare both players chasing stats and understand who is better.

Averages when India batted second:

PLAYER

AVERAGE WHEN INDIA BATTED SECOND

Tendulkar

42.33

Kohli

This stat clearly shows, Virat's good average than Sachin, When India bats second i.e while chasing Virat seems to be a very good scorer.

Averages when India batted second and won:

PLAYER

AVERAGE WHEN INDIA WON BATTING 2nd

Tendulkar

55.45

Kohli

83.97

Here both Sachin and Virat seem to be very good performers as above 50 is very good on average, but when we see Virat's stats it seems outstanding and again in this stat Virat takes a leap.

Number of 100 when India was chasing:

PLAYER

NO. of 100s WHEN INDIA BATTED SECOND

Tendulkar

Kohli

When you first look at this data you may say Sachin is far better than Virat to make 100, but that's a half-truth. When we look at the number of matches played by both players then Virat seems to be a good performer, in this stat too Virat is the winner.

50+ when India was chasing:

PLAYER

50+ SCORES IN CHASES

50+ SCORES IN WINNING CHASES

Tendulkar

Kohli

27

In this data, Sachin seems to be a very good performer and he is good at making Fifties. In this case, Virat is a little low compared to Sachin but Virat is still in the game and has a very bright future while playing for India. And we hope he plays very good to make more fifties.

Conclusion

Well, this comparison was requested by one of our viewers, otherwise, there is no sense in comparing legends who play cricket. No matter who is better at making 100 and 50 for themselves, they both play for India and try to win every game and that's why they are Legends, and legends are not compared they are celebrated.
