    Kohli has a better shot than cook. Cook opens the innings in tests, a light dip in form can put him out of contention. If both of them breaks the record the world will remember Cook and Tendulkar's records only, Kohli won't get the same fame.

    Phenomenal stats.
    I think Cook is better batsman than Kohli, because what he is doing is in Tests, not ODIs.

    Virat is a different breed - he 'll definitely break SRT's ODI record. For him, the ultimate is putting value to the wicket. He never gets tired of batting, never gives easy wicket & most importantly has a habit of making start count. Recently, he seemed to be out of form, but even then, once passed the initial nervous period, did converted the 100.

    Cook is going through his golden patch. Since ENG plays most no. of Tests, & puts highest value to Test Cricket & he doesn't indulge his game with the porn version, chances are that, he 'll end up playing well over 200 Tests if he carries till 38. So, another 120+ Tests & I think he 'll cross 52 Centuries.

    Tendulkar was a beast of a player in both formats, you rarely find that. Ponting came pretty close to Tendulkar's standards while Lara was bit of an underachiever in ODIs. Current crop of players is pretty weird though, some are excelling in limite dovers and failing in tests and some are excelling in tests and being average in limited overs. KP is right up there as a complete player but he started late and will always struggle to get near Tendulkar, Ponting's amazing numbers.

    The volume based records will be hard to beat because Sachin started playing at the age of 16 and is still playing at 40. With the world moving towards T20s, I believe the future generation will not beat these records.

    Imran, Wasim, Ponting, Lara didn't need to be Indian. They were all special players and drew huge crowds wherever they went. Even India itself has not produced many of those, Tendulkar was simply a one off for a generation of Indian cricketers. Kohli can get there if he gets going in tests big time. He needs to take off!

    We perhaps should not want Kohli to be or better than Tendulkar. Let him play and evolve as a player and get the best he can.. even if he takes time.

    At the end of his career, he should not be judged on whether he overtook Tendulkar.

    Kohli has already taken off in tests.

    He has boomed his averaged to the 40's now and I believe in a couple of years, he'd be averaging 50+ in both formats.

    Shows how difficult it is to break Tendulkars records. Cook's avg has now taken a dive. It will be very difficult for Cook to recover from the hammering.

    IMO no one will break most of his records. The only way would be by playing more tests.

    With Kallis gone and Cook on a decline, its very unlikely that his test centuries record will be broken in the next 20 years at least.

    His ODI centuries record is under threat from Kohli but still a long way to go.

    His combined tally will never be surpassed.

    Simply put, its always been difficult to fill his shoes. Whenever Tendulkar has been sidelined, the other guy has simply been unable to hold on to the numero uno tag. The pressure gets to them and they fall apart. Ponting had it on the plate in 2007 with SRT on verge of retirement and him establishing himself as best. Whatever happened to Ponting mysteriously after that is history now, just never recovered. Kallis also fell apart in last year. Cook was supposed to be another legend, his averages have taken a massive dive ever since the India series.

    Don't under estimate Cook, He will score heavily against our trudlers in 5 match series, By the way England plays very good amount of test cricket so he's allowed to have some bad series.

    Yahh, ICC should have two separate record books.

    People are talking about stats here not quality. Your centuries counts as far as stats goes. Lighten up.

    Give the lesser blokes some chance, otherwise Tendulkar, Lara are simply untouchable if we're only gonna be talking about quality runs. That kind of one sidedness is detrimental to fair analysis.

    We bullied him in England, the only flat pitch he found though, he hit a triple. lol

    Cook's average is suffering. Its 46 something now, the standards are really dropping. Seems like he's gonna really have to drag himself to get there.

    We bullied Cookie last time in England until the last test when he hit nearly a triple.

    Well, it'll be real difficult for him to catch up to the master blaster, dare I say near impossible.

    Cook has more runs than Tendulkar at the same age. Remains to be seen whether he can match his performance from now on though.

    Someone once said that no one will beat Sachin's record of 100 international centuries like no one will ever beat Bradman's average of 100.
    I tend to agree with this statement.

    No one's ever going to beat Sachin record, let alone reach it. You would have to have similar skill, and come into the game at the same age to make sure you have enough matches/innings to even give yourself a chance. I don't see it happening

    Kallis gave up the wrong format imo. He had a real chance at going past 51 centuries record of Sachin.
    Cook is still 30 but the Ashes will decide his fate I think.

    Pak Warrior, agree with you. Even if someone has the age and skill on his side, he will need to have the temperament, consistency and hunger for runs to give himself a chance to surpass those numbers.

    Doesn't hold true for English players.

    That's what I'm saying man, there's a lot that goes into constructing a quality innings in tests and to build centuries, to do it consistently is very very difficult against great teams bc of the strategy and quality of bowlers. I haven't seen any player as consistent as Sachin in their career, even with the expected slump that hits players in their later years. The man was truly something else, to be the best bat in the history of india...a country that has produced some of the ATGs is ridiculous!!!

    The only thing that doesn't hold true for them would be the age thing bc it can be offset with the vast number of tests they play. But I still don't see a player with the same ability, temperament, and consistency as Sachin in England. Cook is in good rhythm now, but I doubt it will last long enough to reach the Master Blaster.

    Well said mate. What surprises me most about him is the humbleness with which he carried the weight of expectations of 1 billion+ fans for 24 years. It's rare.

    Cook needs a massive purple patch to get back in contention again.

    Right now, there doesn't seem to be any threat for the next fifteen-twenty years.

    What's there to catch? I'm sure the vast majority of batsmen would prefer being better at batting than Tendulker instead of having more runs than him.
