Indian captain Virat Kohli on Thursday urged young people not to compare Saawe with anybody else and to give them enough space to develop in the form of a cricketer. Saawe made 134 against West Indies in his debut match in Rajkot, after which he started to compare with Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag.
Prior to the second Test against the West Indies, Kohli said at the press conference, "I do not think he should reach any decision right now." You should give this young player enough space to move forward according to his ability. He is very talented and as everyone saw that he is full of skill. "
He said, "We definitely want to repeat the way he performed in the first match. She is keen to learn and is flamboyant. He assesses the situation well. We are all happy for that. "
Kohli also agreed with opener Gautam Gambhir who said on Wednesday that people should not compare the world with Virender Sehwag. Kohli said, "We should not compare it to anyone now. We should not keep him in a situation where he feels any kind of pressure. He should give us the place where he enjoys his game and slowly ready as a player as we all want. "
With the direct broadcast of IPL, India A tour and Under-19 tournament, youngsters are making their mark soon and Kohli has admitted that they are now better prepared to withstand the pressure.
He said, "Certainly this can be a reason because they have played in an environment in which the international matches are played. But there is always pressure to play from the country side. When you wear this cap in the morning you are a little nervous and I feel that everyone feels the pressure. "
Kohli said, "But this pressure is not like 10-15 years ago when you had no experience playing such a cricket and suddenly you had to make a debut in Test cricket from India. ''
