Virat Kohli on his life and family: The Indian captain was vocal about his ambitions in life after an eight-year period.
There is no hiding to the fact that India captain Virat Kohli is the best contemporary batsman across formats. Having surpassed several greats of the game and broken numerous records, there are times when he seems invincible with the bat in hand.
Having led India to Test and ODI series victory during the recently concluded tour of Australia, Kohli became the first Indian captain to do so highlighting his skills as a captain.
During the recent conversation on his official mobile application, the 30-year old laid emphasis on priortising his family eight years down the line. “Eight years down the line, priority would be family. Priority would be myself, Anushka and our family by then.

“Cricket would obviously be a part of my life always but I think family should be priority at all times because nothing is bigger than life. Cricket is a part of life, nothing should be bigger than life,” Kohli was quoted as saying.
Kohli sounded firm with his words when he said that the greater picture should always be life. “I know people take life too seriously and be like…’if you don’t take cricket too seriously, then you’re not committed enough’. I don’t believe in all that. The larger picture always has to be life because whatever happens and may happen, you always come back home,” he said.

Admitting that cricket will remain a special part of his life, Kohli said that it isn’t the most important thing in his life. “So I think the priority will be family, should be family. Cricket will be a very special part of my life, but it’s not the most important thing in life is the way I see it.
“I am blessed to be able to do it right now, it has to end one day. Eight years down the line, I think I will be totally focused on my family,” he added.
Having reached New Zealand, Kohli will now lead India in the first ODI to be played on Wednesday at Napier.
