Sandeep Patil has added fuel to the fire about who the better batsman amongst Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli is. According to Patil, Rohit is a better player in the limited-overs format, while Kohli is way ahead in Tests.

Speaking to ABP news, Patil said: Virat Kohli fans might not like it but I have to say Rohit Sharma is currently the better batsman.Virat is definitely a great batsman, no doubt about it. He is India s best Test batsman but when it comes to limited overs cricket, Rohit is ahead of him.”

Patil was of the opinion that Rohit has time and again proved his worth whenever he is given a chance.

He said: I m sure Virat s going to come back from the break and score lots of runs in South Africa but when we talk about limited-overs cricket this year, Rohit has been unbelievable. People may say he has played more matches against Sri Lanka but so has Virat. Whether he is playing only as a batsman or as captain Rohit has proved he is best at the moment.

Both Rohit and Kohli will be seen in action during India’s tour of South Africa 2018.
