I am less special than Sachin Tendulkar, says Virat Kohli

Virat responded to the complement from the Master Blaster himself, after the former single-handedly guided India to a historic victory in the 'virtual' quarter-final match against Australia in the ICC World T20 at Mohali, on Sunday.

Tendulkar led the effusive praise for Kohli, terming his unbeaten 82-run innings last night as a "special" one. "Woooow @imVkohli ...special it was... Great win, fighting all the way! #IndvsAus," Tendulkar tweeted.

Thanks to Kohli's heroics with the bat, India successfully chased down 161 and booked a spot in the semi-finals, where they will face West Indies on March 31 (Thursday) in Mumbai.

The 27-year-old cricketer, who also happens to be the no.1 T20 batsman, with his incredible innings of 82 off 51 balls against Australia at PCA stadium, triggered a debate whether he's a better batsman than Sachin Tendulkar.

But, seems the Delhi-lad himself has decided to put such comparisons to an end with his remarks.
