CRICKET NEWS - One of the dominant themes in the series between the Proteas and India is an obvious one.
Even before the tour started, many fans were already licking their lips for the battle between AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli.
Both these dynamic batsmen have made their marks to date.
But who is the best between them?
Two famous captains – Graeme Smith and Sunil Gavaskar – weigh in on the debate.
It’s very difficult to decide between AB and Virat. AB probably has more shots.
He started out a bit like Jacques Kallis early on, being very technically correct, but now he hangs back in his crease waiting for the bowlers to come to him.
He’s the sort of guy who can get a hundred in 50 balls.
Virat is also always looking to take the bowlers on, mentally he loves a contest – you can see that in how many times he has got India over the line, he has an outstanding fourth-innings record.
He seems able to plan exactly how he wants to take a bowler on and he can kill you clinically.
They are both outstanding batsmen.
