Cricket fans started comparing him with legendary batsmman Sachin Tendulkar.
England opening great-turned commentator Geoff Boycott has offered a ‘reality check’ for the die-hard supporters of the batsman. The 76-year-old believes that ‘Kohli mania’ is also a by-product of human tendency to be prisoners of the moment.Check out what he said in his in interview with Star Sports Network:-
“We’re all human. What we see on TV, we think that it’s the best ever. Is Kohli better than (Sunil) Gavaskar? Hang on. The kid’s going to be a great player. But Gavaskar and (Sachin) Tendulkar were great players too. It’s easy to say ‘long live the king.’ ‘The king is dead.’ That’s what happens to us all. We’re all: ‘Was that Tendulkar, did he really play and get a 100 hundreds?’ ‘Was he really better than Kohli?’ We focus on what we see because we’re human,” Boycott said while speaking at a Rotary club of Bombay Midtown meeting in Mumbai on Wednesday (December 14)
