5 Stadiums Where Sachin Tendulkar Didn’t Score A Hundred But Virat Kohli Has

Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar are perhaps two of the most successful batsmen in Indian cricket history. Both the batsmen attained the demi-god status because of their powerful performances on the field. Often, the fans have debates over who among the two is the better batsman.

While both batsmen were superior to each other in one or the other aspect, the general belief is that Sachin Tendulkar was a better player than Virat Kohli because the bowling attacks he faced were far more talented. 

However, the current Indian skipper has not only played well against all teams, but he has also fared brilliantly in overseas conditions. There were many stadiums where Sachin Tendulkar played a match, but could not score a hundred. Here’s a look at the five venues where Sachin could not touch the three-figures mark, but Virat has a hundred to his name.
