Who is Better- Bradman, Gavaskar, Tendulkar or Kohli

Cricket is a game of statistics. So, let us peep into the career statistics of the three players- Bradman, Sachin and Kohli. Of Course, Bradman is great but he is certainly not the greatest. But, a choice between Kohli and Sachin is imperative to find out the greatest. I think, Tendulkar is the greatest, but Kohli is slowly and steadily overtaking him.

The day is not far off when Kohli will make all records of all past cricketers a joke. He is the only batsman in the world who is averaging 50 plus in all formats of the game save IPL. He and Tendulkar have scored everywhere and against all opponents.

Compared to the two Indians, Sir Don Bradman lag behind. He had played against Englad, West Indies India and South Africa. He had never played against all countries and in all conditions. He was never tested in Asian conditions.

The modern day cricket is out and out rofessional in character and spirit. The fielding now is so sharp that taking a single is quite difficult and what about scoring a boundary or a six. Even the best of shots land in fielder’s hands. I don’t think Sir Bradman would have scored as freely in recent times as in the past.

However, Bradman was a genius  to score 28067 first class runs at a staggering average of 95.14 with 117 centuries inclusive of 37 doble and six triple hundreds. His test record is  that in 52 tests, he scored 6996 runs at 99.96 with 29 centuries which include two scores of 300+,one 299 and nine scores beyond 200.

Modern cricketing heroes are more wholesome, atheletic and agile.The bulging belly and clinging to the creaseo more exist.
