    Kohli is such a gun that people think 442 runs @ 55.25 with 5 50s in 9 innings was a poor return from him in the WC. and tbf it was below his career average, so fair enough.

    Yeah, it is average for Kohli, such are the standards he's set for himself.

    Also, worth bearing in mind that he got out slogging towards the end in a few of those knocks, he doesn't play to protect his average unlike Dhoni.

    It probably demonstrates how vital Dhawan is to India and to Kohli even more. You cannot have 2 slow starting openers in your team.

    Dhawan either gets out quickly and lets Kohli do his thing because of how many overs are left, or he makes some quick runs and then lets Kohli ride that momentum.

    It shows how easy is Batting now ,

    and ABDV declined in this decade , yet he avgs 65 ish at close to 110 SR . Statistically a league above Kohli , in Kohli's prime.

    Sachin
    Viv
    ABDV
    Kohli
    Dhoni

    Yes. ABDV is not active now.

    43 centuries in 230 innings is unreal.

    Kohli is either the ODI GOAT or he is going to end up as the ODI GOAT

    And to think about it, he is 5 years younger than Sachin in scoring his 43rd hundred. Never thought some one is going to surpass him by that extent. Unreal player.

    Kapil Dev was arguably a better batsman once you adjust for tougher attacks, lower scores, difficult conditions.

    You are giving far too much emphasis on era adjustments.If a player of the past used to score a hundred in 10 innings, it does not mean he will score one in 5 innings these days. Cricket does not work like that. Kohli has lost plenty of opportunities in the recent past because a couple of very good openers batted a good number of overs before he even got a chance to bat. Same could be said about Viv, Ponting or some other great middle order bat.

    Who do you think was a better batsman between Kapil and Bradman? Pretty hard to split imo.

    Probably Kapil. He scored 31 @ 80 strike rate. Bradman 99 @ 65 strike rate. Given that batting was 40% easier in 1980s as compared to 1930s, Kapil just about beats him. Sobers next.

    No

    Check Sachin career in different eras

    Possible

    Same could be said about Viv, Ponting or some other great middle order bat.//

    Agreed.

    Whatever , it's far more easy now.
    Since 2015 , Rohit and kohli scored 22 X 100s . Kohli in 92 innings , Rohit in 91.

    A declining ABDV scored 7 X 100s in 49 ,

    Warner 15 in 65.

    Sachin scored 7 X 100s in last 45 innings iirc.

    We are talking about Kohli's whole career though. Guys you have mentioned score a hundred in 4-5 innings for a noticeably short period. Kohli has done that for a decade. And ABD was not declining when he left.
