It is a common occurrence to compare athletes from same sporting discipline. However, when it comes to sporting heroes from different fields, comparison doesn’t hold relevance. A new comparison has surfaced and the players in focus are Indian batting legend and god of cricket Sachin Tendulkar and the GOAT of football world Lionel Messi.
It all started when a Twitter account with the name God had tweeted about Lionel Messi following his sensational hat-trick in Barcelona’s La Liga clash against Sevilla. “I’m leaving. Messi, take over.”
I’m leaving. Messi, take over.

This tweet, however, didn’t go down well with Bollywood actor Ayushman Khurrana who wrote Sachin’s name in his response.

Tendulkar is considered to be the best cricketer of all time while Messi enjoys the same status in the hearts of football fanatics. The former Indian captain is the only player to score 100 international tons in his 24-year career.
