    Wink Any' or 'any other'

    Which one is correct?

    1- In a span of nine years, Virat Kohli has earned more reputation than any cricketer has ever done in history.

    2- In a span of nine years, Virat Kohli has earned more reputation than any other cricketer has ever done in history.

    Re: Any' or 'any other'

    I'm not sure I like 'earned more reputation', but that isn't your question. Apart from that they're both possible but 1 includes Virat Kohli and 2 doesn't. In 2 it would be possible that he 'earned more reputation' than any other cricketer but not as much as he had earned himself in another nine year span.

    Re: Any' or 'any other'

    I'm afraid, "earned more reputation" doesn't work for me at all. Consider, e.g., "built a better reputation" instead. Why is that span of nine years important?

    Thank you for the correction, 'the span of nine years' is not important. "Virat Kohli has earned a better reputation than any cricketer/any other cricketer has ever done." Which one should I use now?

    Re: Any' or 'any other'

    Consider:
    Over the relatively short span of nine years, Virat Kohli has earned a better reputation as an international cricketer than any other player has done before.
