In order to become the next master blaster, you need to score a similar number of centuries which is made by Sachin Tendulkar. In the new era of the Indian cricket team, Virat Kohli is one of the biggest names among all the other international cricketers. There are lots of people work raising Virat Kohli for the win over our rival Pakistan. The legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar is the master blaster of cricket. Although before we get to decide about the next master blaster, you should know about both of them in comparison. Both Kohli and Tendulkar great batsman who are having a passion for the cricket. They have always tried harder to bring their country to the front line and make us proud of them.
Even both of them are having wonderful strike rates, the only difference is that Tendulkar is calm and quiet when it comes to pressure. Whereas Virat Kohli is aggressive and focal against others when it comes to pressure. There will always be a huge difference between both of these players, in order to compare them completely, we need to wait for the retirement of the only.
Although the Sachin Tendulkar is having more than 200 international wickets with his bowling scale, where was Virat Kohli does not have the skill two ball like Sachin Tendulkar. There are many cricket matches won by Sachin Tendulkar with his bowling abilities, so it is safe to say that Sachin Tendulkar is one and only master blaster with superb bowling ability which currently is not fulfilling by the Virat Kohli. Although there always room for improvement and catch up with the legend, as per Kohli’s performance he can become the next master blaster of cricket.
Many experts think that Virat Kohli is having great potential, but it is a situation when you have to face the pressure of captainship which may affect his game.

In the past master blaster, Sachin Tendulkar was also given the captainship to lead team India, but due to the pressure of captainship, he left it due to the performance issue. Compared to that period Kohli is well aware of handling responsibility as an Indian cricket player as well as Indian cricket team captain.
If he continues to show this much potential then we can surely see him in the position of a master blaster of the Indian team in the future.
