Emotional moments among sportsmen is one of the fabulous things to watch if you are a great sports fanatics. The top players in the history of sports do share their emotional moments and usually, it ends in tears. In the history of cricket, we have had more emotional moments and one of the latest and recent emotional moments among cricket players was the one between Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli. Virat is always thought to be the next Sachin by many Cricket fans in India, and thus, it does not surprise me if the two had emotional moments that led to the Legend shedding Tears.
The Emotional moment between the two occurred in 2013 when Sachin had just given his acceptance speech. This speech was after he had his final test in a match against the West Indies. It was after this event that Virat approached the legend and gave him a thread of good luck that was given to him by his father as a symbol of good luck. He handed him the thread and touched his feet to symbolize respect and how special he was. This is because the thread of good luck was supposed to be handed to someone special. This made the legend remain numb and speechless before tear rolled down his cheeks.
Sachin is an Indian Cricket Team veteran who has recorded a sizzling performance for the Indian team including defending 6 runs that made the Indian cricket tea reach the finals. After playing the 72 test innings Sachin has recorded an averaged 52.5. The innings test he has played has allowed him to face the world’s top bowlers who have recorded fantastic performances in the history of Cricket. This includes Ambrose, Akram, McGrath, Warne, Muralitharan, etc.
On the Other hand, Virat Kohli who is currently the Indian Cricket captain has recorded incredible performances in the world of cricket. He featured in the Indian team that won the 2011 world cup. He also led the under 19 Indian team to victory by being their captain. He has won the various BCCI International awards including being the ICC ODI player of the year in 2012. He also scooped the international cricket of the year award.
Trying to compare Virat to Sachin is quite dimmable since it’s like comparing a teacher to a student. Virat has got a long way to go to be the Next Sachin. The popularity of the cricket in India has grown up due to the versatile performance of Sachin that is why it’s quite dimmable to compare the two sport personalities. After featuring in 72 test inning Sachin has recorded an averaged 52.5 while Virat has got 44. The only thing that Virat is supposed to do is to fill the sport left behind by the Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar. This is absolutely a cricket veteran who has really inspired the Indian cricket team to rise to the top ranks in the ICC Cricket ranking.
