Virat Kohli has proven his mettle.

“The way he is playing, Virat can well become the greatest ever Indian batsman,” Sangakkara told TOI.

“In terms of Sachin’s legacy both in terms of cricket and the way he has dealt with pressure, he is unique. But Virat is well on his way to match that. He is comfortably the best in the world of his generation and with time, he will mature even more. If he understands himself a bit better and keeps improving his game, he will break quite a few records,” Sangakkara said.
