In tests also no comparison between the two, Amla is far better specially in last 2 years. Kohli's odi record is also FAR superior to gayle in odi's even though he is poor in tests. Gayle is massively overrated because of his bullying in IPL, he is nowhere close to being top 10 batsmen in odi's and top 15 in tests. He is a very good batsman but not in the class of Amla, Kallis, AB.
I know Gayle is no where as good as Amla in odis and tests, but in teaTwenties there is no one better than Gayle.
Amla or even Kohli's consistency is just beyond reality but so is Gayles power hitting.
And I dont know what u mean by Gayle beating up in domestic lgs, dont u know that Gayle is the first player to score an international hundred against SA in Tea20 cup,and also not to forget how he treated Brett lee in English conditions,in some T20 match.

Kohli's on 37* at tea and looking set to score a patient, classy and potentially match saving/winning big test by lunch tomorrow.

Kohli finishes the day on 93*. Looking unbreakable and classy, he's well on his way to his second test after playing yet another key innings for India. He has definitely turned the corner in test matches.

Even though I'm not a big fan of India, I'm a huge fan of Kohli. I just love his attitude as well. Every team needs a fiery guy and fierce competitor. I also love the way he just scores his runs regardless of what conditions he's playing in. definitely great for cricket to have a great emerging batsman like Kohli.

I'm a huge admirer of Kohli's batting/fielding/consistency, still don't like him much but doesn't matter, he is awechum.

a youngster performing like this for any team is exciting, a great example for all the other youngsters.

Not even 24 yet, he has temperament and technique of a 35YO veteran playing at his peak. He'll put up genuinely scary numbers in all 3 formats if he manages to sustain what we've just witnessed.

Didn't expect him to fall so quickly after his . Clutch knock nonetheless.

51* delivers victory for his team and takes his test average past 40 for the first time. It won't be long before Kohli cruises past 50. What an amazing 23YO!

kohli is incredibly talented, so mentally tough for a 23 year old and such great temperament and ability to play the way the situation requires.

this is a special 23 year old, most players won't ever be able to be as consistent and high quality as kohli is let alone at the age of 23.

As 23YO batsmen go since Lara-Ponting-Tendulkar, the only other 23YO as special as Kohli I can think of is Michael Clarke, but I think he'll surpass the Australian phenom by some distance in 10 years max if he doesn't go through too many dry patches in a reasonably long career. Kohli already has more ODI hundreds, is a superior T20I player, and has begun to stamp his authority in tests since Perth. Both Graeme Smith and AB Devillers, each very impressive as a 23YO, are still going strong. Alastair Cook, Andrew Strauss and Kevin Pietersen are up there also.

I'm only talking about young batsmen who managed to sustain early success, not relatively late bloomers like Mathew Hayden, Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara or more recently, Hashim Amla.

Shakib Al Hasan has also been very special but from the far narrower context of his incredible value primarily to Bangladesh.

Anyway, here's one way to measure a batsman in terms of the centuries he scores (not including Sir Don, who's in a class all by himself):

1. 30+ centuries per format = legend

2. 20-29 centuries per format = great

3. 15-19 centuries per format = good

I'm guessing you wouldn't use the same parameters for T20Is? Rather than just runs scored, I'd look at 50+ scores coupled with strike rate and games played.

Amla's odi record is freakish and far better than Tendulkar and even Kohli specially in the strike rate department as well as average, he averages 15 points higher than tendulkar. It's just sad that SA play half the number of odi's a year as India, If SA played as many useless odi's as India on mostly flat pitches he would have crushed Kohli's run records by now (still has far better average, strike rate and century ratio)

Amla missed his 11th ODI by just 3 runs, but a match winning innings nonetheless. Great partnership with ABD after Smith, FDP and Elgar went cheaply.

Amla's innings in this tour so far, facing some of the best bowlers in the world:

Tests: 311*, 9, 28, 13 & 121 with an average of 120.5

ODIs: 150, 43, 45 & 97* with an average of 111.7
