Virat Kohli crossed Sachin Tendulkar in terms of followers in facebook. Currently, Indian batting sensation Sachin Tendulkar has 26,787,104 million fans while Sachin Tendulkar has 26,782,911. However, Tendulkar still is the most followed sportsperson on twitter. He has 10. 4 million fans while Virat Kohli has 10. 3 million.

Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar started his career in 1989 when there was no social media, not the internet so Sachin Tendulkar spent his prime before social media become popular among young generations of India.  On the other hand, Virat Kohli’s cricket career started when facebook and twitter have been very popular among young generation.

As Sachin Tendulkar retired from international cricket in 2012 his popularity reduced a little bit as Virat Kohli’s match-winning performance and his relationship with Anushka Sharma.

Virat Kohli’s recent performance in T20  helped him surpass Tendulkar on facebook.

The right-handed batsman played outstanding innings against Pakistan, Australia and West Indies in the semifinal. Virat is now India’s most celebrated sportsperson in India.

Sachin Tendulkar last played during All-Star Cricket in USA for Sachin Tendulkar XI.  He was the captain of his side.

 

Sachin Tendulkar played outstanding cricket since 1994 New Zealand tour, he showed that Indian batsmen no more bowed down to the seaming overseas bowler. His desert storm against Australia, hundreds of 100, highest runs in Test and ODI cricket and majestic innings in 2003 and 2011 World Cup made him the most popular batsman in India and in the world.

After his retirement Virat Kohli has become the next Indian batting maestro. Virat also is the captain of Indian Test team. He has won two back to back series gainst Sri Lanka and South Africa.
