Virat Kohli: 'Once I'm done, you won't see me for a while' | Cricket News

Not just cricket, Virat Kohli has influenced the world of sports like no other over the past decade, which has also played a role in cricket being included in the Olympic program of the Los Angeles 2028 edition. And as the Indian batting icon's thirst for runs refuses to cease, it is only natural for fans and pundits to wonder what keeps him going.
The same question was asked of the former Indian captain at RCB's royal gala dinner ahead of their do-or-die IPL match against Chennai Super Kings in Bengaluru on May 18.

Kohli and RCB skipper Faf du Plessis were on stage, when Kohli answered a question on what makes him hungry and wanting more.

“It’s quite simple,” said Kohli, 35. “I think as an athlete we have an end date to our career. So I just work backwards. I don't want to end my career thinking 'oh, what if I had done that on that day ' because I can't go on forever, so it's just about not leaving any unfinished business behind and not having regrets later, which I'm sure I won't do.
Kohli also hinted that he will take a long break before thinking about what's next, once he retires from cricket.

“Once I'm done, I'll leave, you won't see me for a while (smile). So I want to give it my all until the moment I play, and that's the only thing that keeps me going,” he said.
Kohli currently tops the current run-scorer rankings IPL2024. He has scored 661 runs in 13 innings so far at a strike rate of 155.16 and an average of 66.10. His count includes five fifty and one hundred.
