Kohli on life after retirement: The Indian captain was vocal about his life after retiring as a cricketer.
India captain Virat Kohli’s press conference ahead of the first ODI of the ongoing India’s tour of Australia at Sydney took a different turn when the cricketer was seen discussing his life-after-retirement.
It is worth mentioning that this is not the first time that Kohli has spoken of retirement. After the presentation ceremony of the first ODI of West Indies’ tour of India last year, Kohli was vocal about the same saying that he has a few years left.

The 30-year old cricketer laid emphasis on not coming back and playing again after he calls it a day at the highest level. “I will be spent, the day I finish I will be totally spent and that’s the reason I am going to stop playing cricket. So I don’t see myself coming back and playing again. Once I am done, I will be done, and I won’t be seen around the scene,” Kohli was quoted as saying.
Having said that, Kohli gave hints of the stance changing in the future. “Look I don’t know whether that stance is going to change in the future. As far as I am concerned, playing more cricket when I am done, I don’t think I am in that zone to be honest,” he further said.

Kohli, arguably the fittest cricketers across the world, has played a substantial amount of cricket in the past. Taking into consideration his time spent in the middle, he has been under a lot of workload.
“I have played enough cricket in the last five years and I cannot comment on even the first thing I do when I retire because I don’t feel like I am going to pick up the bat again,” he concluded.
