'Can't Compare Virat Kohli With Sachin Tendulkar'
Virat Kohli has often been compared with Sachin Tendulkar, but Yuvraj Singh and David Warner tell NDTV that any comparison is a futile exercise

Yuvraj Singh has not played in IPL 2016 due to an ankle injury.
Yuvraj could play on May 6 against Gujarat Lions.
Sunrisers Hyderabad are in fifth position in IPL 2016.
Virat Kohli will leave his own mark in international cricket and should not be compared with the legendary Sachin Tendulkar, said Sunrisers Hyderabad teammates Yuvraj Singh and David Warner to NDTV on Thursday.
Yuvraj said Kohli and AB de Villiers "were the best of this generation" but to match Tendulkar's 100 international centuries is still a long way to go.
He may had many run-ins with Kohli but Warner has a healthy respect for the Indian Test captain, who is now leading IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore.
"Virat is a great competitor but can't compare anyone with Sachin. Virat will leave a legacy when he is done playing cricket," said Warner.
Meanwhile, Yuvraj Singh, sidelined with an injury since the ICC World T20, hopes to play his first game for Sunrisers Hyderabad on Friday.
Yuvraj is likely to feature in the playing XI against Gujarat Lions. SRH skipper Warner said: "Yuvraj has an important role to play for Sunrisers with his batting and left-arm spin bowling."
India's 2011 World Cup-winning hero, Yuvraj, still wants to play all three formats for the Indian team.
