Kohli will bounce back depending on the pitches, if the pitches are bouncy/ seaming then the chances are very slim.

19th Test Century, My Lord. I think he will easily surpass Smith's Test Centuries.

He is only 29, can play for 8/9 years and get over 40 test hundreds.

I hope from now on people won't even put Kohli and Amla in the same category. Amla has a far better ODI average while playing on tougher pitches and not playing Sri lanka every other series. And let's not even compare them as test cricketers, Amla averages over 50 , while Kohli is in the 30's

4 consecutive failures, the law of averages after he hit something like 5 tons in 6 matches early last year.

Amla is the silent run machine.
Goes to show what focus and dedication can do.

Kohli will be regarded as one of the greatest flat track king/ poor bowling basher (SL, BD, WI etc) of his era. All his great performances have come on the flattest of pitches and usually against poor bowling like SL, only one hundred outside Asia.

Same reason mediocre bowlers like Zaheer who averages over 30 is compared with the legend that is Wasim Akram. Because he is Indian and it pays to compliment them when it comes to cricket. Utterly trash bowlers like Ashwin are compared to Swann.. lol

Still not convinced by Kohli's test credintials. Maybe he will have Ganguly like career.

I have always rated ABD ahead of Amla in every format.

kohli is certainly on his way in tests, now averaging over 45 with 6 tons in 24 matches and consider he didn't score his first test ton until his 8th match well he's certainly doing well now and for me he's done enough to prove he's going to be one of the best test bats of his generation.

amla i've always been a bit iffy on, still a terrific player though and has the numbers to back him up, i to have always rated AB higher in all formats.

Now Kohli Is Improving with test av is 46 odi 51.
Amla test 50 odi 53
last 1yr amlas av was only 35 in test.in 2010-2012 amlas av was always 60 in both format.

ABD is already in the top 5 SA run scorers all time for every format whereas amla doesn't make the top 5 in any of them yet. of course amla is only 30 so will still climb those positions but ABD is just about the same age and he's ahead in every format so far. amla will hit the test top 5 for SA this year no doubt (has less than a couple of hundred runs to hit that mark, same for t20s) but in ODIs he has a lot of runs to score, though the players between him and the top 5 are all retired now so they're numbers aren't moving but de villier's is currently #5 and he's likely to pass kirsten (the #4) in the next year or so which means amla will have to pass kirsten to reach the top 5 and that means amla still has greater than 2000 runs to achieve before reaching the ODI SA top 5.

both ABD and amla should end their careers as SA all time greats and potentially world all time greats.

Kholi is such a good batsman to watch. I reckon he will surpass Tendulkar stats wise by the time he retires.

He have the age on his side and ha ve dedication for it unlike other top cricketers around the globe.

Especially in ODIs. Dunno about Tests...partly because we don't know how many Tests he'll get to play in roughly 15 years
