Australia batsman Steve Smith and Team India skipper Virat Kohli are one of the finest players in the current generations. Both the cricketers have created and broken many records with the bat and are battling for the top spot in the current ICC test batsman ranking.

Just like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo's rivalry in football, these two cricketers have their own rivalry in cricket. While the experts are still debating on the issue, former team India skipper Sourav Ganguly doesn't want to compare these two cricketers as he feels both are best in their terms  

"These are questions not to be answered. How does it matter? It's about performance. Virat is the best in the world at the moment. So that's what makes us happy," Ganguly told reporters on the sidelines of Tata Steel Kolkata 25K launch. Ganguly is the face of the event.

Former Australia skipper Smith retained his position at the top of the ICC Test Player Rankings after the Ashes with Kohli sitting behind him on the second spot.

Smith's scores of 80 and 23 have helped him remain 34 points ahead of Kohli with 937 rating points, an incredible effort since he started the series in fourth position with 857 points before his surge that came courtesy 774 runs in four Tests including a double hundred.

Asked about Smith, he said: "His records speak for itself... 26 Test hundreds which is a phenomenal record."

The sixth edition of the $100,000 Tata Steel Kolkata 25K will be held here on December 15.
