It is unbelievable. Growing up, I could never imagine a team without Tendulkar but someday, one needs to take that (retirement) decision," the 23-year-old batsman told <em>NDTV</em>.<br /> <br /> In a lighter vein though, he said that Tendulkar insisted that a self proclaimed 'hip hop' and R&B lover like him had to listen to old english songs.<br /> <br /> "He loved a selected few songs. He is a great fan of Kishore Kumar but he made me listen to old english songs with meaningful melody. As far as I am concerned, I am listening to Swedish House Mafia a lot these days apart from popular Punjabi numbers."<br /> <br /> Kohli feels that one quality that he wishes to imbibe from his skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the art of "staying calm" in pressure situations.<br /> <br /> "One thing I like about him (Dhoni) is his calmness. I wish I could have some of it. He is someone who doesn't disclose too much which would let opposition know about what's going on in his mind. Wish I could get some of it," Kohli said.<br /> <br /> He termed <a href="/tags/Yuvraj-Singh/post" target="_blank">Yuvraj Singh</a> as "an elder brother" whose courageous comeback to international cricket after fighting a rare germ cell cancer was an "inspiration."<br /> <br /> "Courage and mental strength are two things one can learn from Yuvraj. The challenges that he has faced in life and career is something that one can learn from."<br /> <br /> <a href="/tags/Sunil-Gavaskar/post" target="_blank">Sunil Gavaskar</a> has compared him with Nawab <a href="/tags/Mansur-Ali-Khan-Pataudi/post" target="_blank">Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi</a> stating that the youngster has the same "flair and panache".<br /> <br /> "You feel humbled when you are compared with a legend like Nawab of Pataudi by another legend Sunil Gavaskar."<br /> <br /> Although there weren't too many questions on the team's performance in recent tournaments, Kohli felt that the new ODI rules will be "helpful for batsmen in the sub-continent" while "bowlers will find it beneficial outside the sub-continent."
