Former England captain Michael Vaughan has compared the Rohit Sharma-Virat Kohli duo to one of the best opening duo of all time, the Sachin-Sehwag duo. “Of course they are like Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar. They will start attacking Virender Sehwag from the first ball in their partnership because he knows that Sachin Tendulkar on the other hand has batted with a good strike rate and a lot of off foot, on foot, front foot and so on. He had options and that is what Virat Kohli is doing for India now, ”said Michael Vaughan.
“If Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are at the crease, the opposing teams will be scared because of their batting style. They will bat easily. You can’t throw short balls. In the first few matches, Archer and Wood bothered the Indian batsmen with shortballs.

Kohli, the series’ top scorer, is the Man of the Series. It was the nineteenth Man of the Series award of his career. Sachin Tendulkar is the only man to have won more Man of the Series awards in international cricket. Tendulkar has been the star of the series 20 times. If Kohli becomes the star of the series once again, he can join Tendulkar. With more time left in his career, Kohli is more likely to surpass Tendulkar’s record.
Former South African star all-rounder Jacques Kallis, one of the greatest batsmen the world has ever seen, tops the list. He has starred in the series 15 times. Pace all-rounder Kallis is a genius who has proved his mettle by playing in the IPL. Kohli also won the Man of the Series award in the T20 format. Kohli has won seven Man of the Series awards, including in the England series. Pakistan captain Babur Assam and former captain Mohammad Hafeez are in second place with four each.
