Can Kohli break Sachin's 'many' records? Wasim Akram has his doubts

LAHORE: Former Pakistan skipper and mythical fast bowler Wasim Akram has his doubts on whether or not Virat Kohli can smash Sachin Tendulkar's 'many' information, even though he feels the India captain and ace batsman will cross puts.

"I'm a straight shooter; I say what I feel. I can't compare them both but I think, Virat Kohli will go places and he will break so many records. Can he break Sachin's record? I doubt it. He has far too many records. He's getting there but there's still time," Akram instructed former India opener Aakash Chopra on his YouTube display 'AakashVani'.

"He (Virat) is a modern great. Compared to Sachin, two different players altogether," stated Akram who has had many memorable duels with the Little Master and has watched Kohli develop as a batsman from close.

"He's (Kohli) very aggressive, as a person, as a batsman -- positive aggression. Sachin was calm and yet aggressive; different body language. So as a bowler you read that as well," Akram stated.

"Sachin knew that if I would try and sledge him, he would get even more determined. This is my take and I might be wrong. If I am to sledge Kohli, he will lose his temper. So, when a batsman gets angry, perhaps he will attack you and that is when you have the maximum chances of getting him out," he opined.
