Legendary Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne has said current India and Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli is better than Sachin Tendulkar when it comes to chasing totals on ODI cricket.

Kohli has scored 35 centuries in ODIs and out of those 19 have come in successful chases, which is the highest in the world. Kohli has reached the milestone in just 208 ODIs, whereas Tendulkar scored 49 tons in his career from 463 ODIs. In all, 14 of Tendulkar’s centuries have come in a winning cause.

Many already consider Kohli as the best chaser in ODI cricket and Warne too believes the Delhi batsman is in a league of his own.

“I think the way Virat plays and you look at his numbers and it’s uncanny how many times he has got hundreds in ODI cricket chasing totals down. I don’t think anyone, not even Sachin could do what Virat’s done. We know Sachin and Brian Lara were the two best players of all time in our generation,” Warne was quoted as saying by India Today.

“Virat is as good as anyone that I have seen play the game. Wonderful, terrific player, I love his energy and passion. I am sure when he finishes in ten years or so he will be spoken about in the same breath as Sachin,” Warner added.
