Virender Sehwag thinks highly of India's batting mainstay Virat Kohli, but feels that that the youngster will need to play at least five years to go anywhere near Sachin Tendulkar's record.
"Virat has been doing what everybody was expecting from him. He is scoring runs and winning matches for India." Asked about views of some experts that Kohli may break some of Tendulkar's records if he continues in the fine form he is currently in, Sehwag said, "He has just started and Tendulkar's records are far away. Virat will need at least five years to go anywhere near Tendulkar's records."
On struggling Yuvarj Singh and Shikhar Dhawan, Sehwag said they should be given some time to prove themselves.
"It's true that Yuvi is facing bad days. But he has not scored in just two matches (in the ongoing World T20). Everybody knows he is a match-winner. So he should be given some more time. I hope he does find form in the semifinal and the final," Sehwag said of Yuvraj.
"Dhawan is a young player and he should be given some more time. I also did not score too many runs when I started playing for India but I got the backing of team management. I hope Dhawan hits back to form," Sehwag said when asked about Dhawan who has taken his opening slot in the Indian team.
