Is Kallis the combination of Sachin and Zaheer?

This question came in my mind a long time ago, I couldn’t decide that whether it is true or not ? So here I’m providing you some stats and you’ll tell me that it is true or not ?? 

If I’m talking about Sachin, so you all know that people called him as the God of Cricket because of the runs that he scored, records that he made but also because of his image that he created in everyone’s mind with his sportsman spirit towards the game of cricket whether I’m talking about his reaction when umpire gives the wrong decision or while replying to the sledging only with his Bat. In India, not only people but the players like Dhoni, Kohli, Sehwag and many more started watching cricket because of him. Once Australian cricketer Matthew Hayden said –I have seen God, he bats at number 4 for India in test.”

Now here are the career stats of him:-

 Zaheer is the best bowler India has ever produced. He played in the era where batsmen like Kallis, Sangakara, Ponting, Sanath Jayasurya and many other great players had played. He was not played against them but also got them out. He also has the distinct record of dismissing Graeme Smith, Kumar Sangakkara, Matthew Hayden and Sanath Jayasurya- some of the games most feared left hand batsmen- over 10 times each in international cricket.

Once Dhoni said,” Zaheer is the Sachin Tendulkar of Indian Bowling.”

Here are his career stats:-

 Kallis is regarded as one of the greatest allrounder of all time this game has ever produced and South Africa’s greatest batsman as well. As of 2020, he is the cricketer in the history of game to score more than 10,000 runs and take over 250 wickets in both ODI and Test match cricket. He also took 131 ODI catches and 200 test catches.He has been described by Kevin Pietersen and Daryll Cullinan as the greatest crickter to play the game. 

Once West Indian cricketer Kemar Roach said, “Kallis is probably the hardest batsmen I ever bowled to.”

Here are his career stats:-

Here is one of the images that I had from one of the test matches comparing Sachin + Zaheer = Kallis

Hope you find it good enough.
