At the age of 34, Tendulkar had played 520 international matches while Virat, as of November when he turned 34, played 477 matches.
At 34, Tendulkar had amassed a total of 25,525 runs in ODIs and Tests combined while Kohli, at the same age, scored a total of 24,350 runs.
At the age of 34, Tendulkar had 76 centuries while Virat when he turned 34 had 71 centuries against his name.
Sachin, who made his debut in 1989, had played 384 ODIs by the age of 34 while Kohli had played 262 ODIs when he turned 34.
At 34, Sachin had scored a total of 14, 847 runs in ODIs while had amassed 12,344 runs by the time when he turned 34.
If Kohli goes on to play like this, he will certainly end up shattering Tendulkar's long standing records.
