Cricket is a game where there are superstars and record breakers in all the formats. There have been so many comparisons by the media and fans on various cricket stars and this is something that will continue till cricket is an active sport item in the world.
Initially there were some comparisons, which were in the search of the answers such as whether Virat Kohli or Sachin Tendulkar is the best. There were also comparisons regarding the best Indian captains and this was mainly between Saurav Ganguly and MS Dhoni.
There are so many online debates regarding the same since a long time, but the recent comparison between Steve Smith and Virat Kohli has really created a storm on various social media platforms.
After England's 2019 ODI world cup triumph, a lot of fans are seen backing England's Joe Root to the considered as the best contemporary batsman for his stellar performance in the ongoing Ashes series.
On the first day of the Ashes test series, the England pacers such as Stuart Broad and Chris Woakes really rattled the Aussie batting line up, but could not contain the Australian captain Steve Smith, as he had some different plans for the day. Smith scored a solid 144 runs under the odd batting conditions to bring up his 24th Test ton. He thus became the second fastest to reach 24 centuries in the lesser amount of innings. He just took 118 innings to score his 24th century in test matches and is 5 innings fewer than that of Virat Kohli's.
One of the fans on Twitter even stated that Steve Smith has 9 hundreds in Ashes tournaments and Virat Kohli has none. But, in the current scenario, India cannot participate in Ashes series and Virat Kohli can never expect scoring a century in this prestigious tournament.
