Raja asked Man of the Match Virat Kohli how it feels to handle the burden of expectation, because Kohli is “kind of a new Sachin Tendulkar” for the Indian fans.
And has India already accepted him in that role?
Labour laws aside, both Tendulkar and Kohli showed promise at a very early age. Tendulkar and Kohli made their international debuts at the age of 16 & 19 respectively.
Before their respective call-ups, Sachin had only a season of Ranji Trophy action under his belt, while Kohli had played a meagre eight List A matches.
