Sorry but there is no comparison of Viv with VK. Some of the reasons are @Yasir Hasan. A part from them, the biggest one is the all time game changing rules of ODIs. I am sure that if Viv was given such Indian batting paradises with such ODI rules, he may have scored 8000 or 10000 runs in equal number of matches. Anyway... once again good work Satish....nice cartoons and expressions.

@CricketFanInCA its your love that is talking, else virat is not good as sir viv.

Wow I thought it was only Indians who didn't have a sense of humour! I think not having a sense of humour seems to be an essential qualification for following the game.

On a different note, great cartoon. Wonderful facial expressions! :-)

@SamRoy - couldn't agree more

@SamRoy Virat has more or less same aggression like VIV... If he need to face Mitchell Johnson in Perth even without bat, he will do it... The way he played yesterday on 99 was fearless and impressive... he might fail for a game but that is the way to mentally kill the opponent... I hope he don't lose the mental strength...

First Virat must face Mitchell Johnson without a helmet in Perth and then I will consider Virat being Viv's equal. Until then..........

Going on mere stats may make Kohli greater than everyone, may be Bradman... but the kind of pitches he has played his cricket on and kind of opposition.... Even Sachin or any modern day great cannot compete with Viv on that front... Not saying Kohli is not a great player, neither I am saying he does not hold the potential to compete him, but he has to play many match winning innings in tough conditions for that... Not hundred every alternate inning on dust bowls...

@ODI_Bestformofcricket ... Well said ... I don't know what makes people think VR was better than VK in ODIs? Statistics at present show that they are on par ... feel proud about that

This one is in poor taste. I am sure even Virat would agree!

Hahaha, look how Sathis has drawn up Viv's facial expression in the second one! Obviously Kohli doesnt wanna bald up like Viv.
