This was from July 22nd, 2012 when I opened this thread: -

Both are also excellent T20I batsmen set to captain their countries in the future in all 3 formats of the sport.
Kohli is the best limited overs batsman in the game today on all surfaces. I'm sure he'll stamp his authority in tests also. Still just 25.5 and averaging 47 (tests), 52 (ODIs), and 44 (T20Is), he's a class apart in the middle. And with 19 ODI 100s already, I see him race past SRT in the format. He's a proven match-winner who dominates the 50-over game the way Sir Viv did.

Amla just turned 31 and being as fit as he is physically and mentally, I see him batting at a very high level until he's 40. Now averaging 51 (tests), 53 (ODIs), and 25 (T20Is), this late bloomer is still getting better despite the occasional and brief hiccup. I won't be surprised if he finishes his career with 40+ test and 20+ ODI 100s, and a T20I average close to 35.

Both are sublime to watch and make you love the game the way ABD and Clarke also do but this thread isn't about those blondes.

I won't be surprised if Kohli averages 50+ in all three formats. Tough to get him out in T20Is and I anticipate lots of not outs.

The rat's average almost sub 40 now. Definitely seems a product of the BCCI hype/PR machine right now. A high score of only 119 indicating a lack of temperament for the longer format. Puj's avg in the low 50s now as well. Only Rahane has maintained or increased his reputation.

The rat is still a beast in limited overs.

Kohli is no doubt the best batsman in the World atm. But i wonder if he can hold on to the title if he keeps playing in foreign conditions?

I think Kohli will overcome foreign conditions it's just a matter of how long until he gets there. Meanwhile guys like Samson, tiwary and jadhav just had a really good A team tour down under, I'm not sure pujara is the long term #3, I'm not writing him off at all but are there other better indian batsmen on the rise? And can rahane keep up this sort of work outside of the SC? Kohli is potentially the long term #3 imo with Samson coming in as the long term #4 assuming he doesn't keep. Pujara could open unless someone like chand or jiwanjot or even reddy step up I reckon pujara and dhawan would make a good opening duo even though dhawan is on the outs atm and vijay is performing.

Best limited overs batsman. In tests there are many better than him. De Villiers, Amla, Clarke, Bravo Jr, R Taylor, Sanga, etc. His numbers just aren't there.

Amongst youngsters I'd put Williamson and Root and Rahane ahead of him too. Heck atm, even B Taylor is outdoing him.

Not for me. In Tests he isn't even Top 10. Across all formats de Villiers, Sangakkara and Amla are better.

Kohli's deficiencies have been exposed by England. He is tentative outside the off-stump when the ball is doing just a little bit. He needs to work on leaving those deliveries. He is very strong mentally and I'm sure he'll overcome this lean patch.

it's just a poor form, he lacks confidence because he himself never went through this, Eng bowled smartly to him.
Otherwise Koheli is a proven cricketer outside sub continent,in tests he got a 119 & a 96 in JoBurg,a 116 in Adelaide, a 105 in Wellington.

Lesson from this series - Kohli's got miles and miles to go before he can be compared to Amla in the longer format. That said he is a top notch limited over batsman like Gayle. I just hope this is not the beginning of a long drawn out lean patch like the one Cook endured.

The likes of Amla, Sanga, Clarke, Jayawardena, Chanders and ABD are just on a different level as the rest and are all time greats. Kohli gets put in the same sentence often mainly because he's got such a great record in ODIs and naturally people put him in the same ranks but it's unfair to put him with them.

Like others have said, he's still got a very long ways to go before he can be in the same ranks as those players. He might actually never be but he can still be a very good batsman when it's all said and done.

he's an ATG ODI batsman and has the potential to be a very very very good longer format batsman but yeah he's not on the level of those you mentioned.

Depends on your criteria for great, sehwag and jayawardene probably just under ATG level due to the wholes in their records.
