Virat Kohli is an absolute genius. He has class written all over him and is currently one of the best batsmen of the modern era. It’s difficult to predict how many more records he would break before he decides to call it a day, as going on what he has achieved so far, he might just overtake Sir Sachin Tendulkar.

We don’t believe in making comparisons as Tendulkar played in a completely different era and means an emotion to the entire country. Having said that, Virat Kohli can only play the opposition and conditions he is given and that is not his fault either. Hence, as we mentioned before, we don’t believe in comparisons.
Other than being talented, Kohli also believes in keeping himself as fit as possible which has been a major factor in his success. From having butter chicken every second day to sticking to a strict diet plan and burning it out in the gym for hours, it is certainly not easy to be a Virat Kohli.
There is always one question though on every cricket lovers mind- With the amount of cricket being played these days, how long will Kohli play for? Interestingly, Speaking at the launch of a promotional event Kolhi threw a bit of light on that aspect by estimating that he would play for around 8- 10 years more.

The Current Indian Captain quoted, ” A lot of us actually don’t know how far we can push ourselves. Maybe at times, without knowing, we can only push ourselves 70 of our potential. Therefore it is necessary to push yourselves until you are done. For example, if I train as hard as I train now, I will possibly play for another 10 years”.
Kohli is 28 at the moment and considering the fact that he always gets a full 21 in the yo-yo test, we will not be surprised if he goes on to play that long. For the moment, lets focus and pray for the upcoming 31st Hundred against Australia. We would also like to take this opportunity to salute the entire Indian Cricket Team for their wonderful performance against Sri Lanka and wish them all the luck for the Australia series.
