Speaking to media persons ahead of the Bushfire relief game on Sunday, Tendulkar said, "I think I'd leave Steve Smith to be in the other side. Virat has been my friend. I would pick Virat. I basically don't like getting into comparisons, people have tried comparing me with a number of guys and I've said, 'just leave us alone,' and that's what I maintain. Let's not get into comparisons and enjoy what both those individuals are doing. They are entertaining the entire cricketing world. It's a joy to watch them but when it comes to picking someone I think let an Indian pick and Indian guy."
