India’s run machine and cricket legend Virat Kohli has spilled beans on his post-retirement plans. The former RCB captain said that he would take a long break once he is done playing cricket.

The living legend, who has been into the gentleman’s game since childhood, believes that he would spend most of his time with his family. Regarded as the greatest batsman of this generation, Kohli who made his India debut in 2008 continues to be the fittest cricketer even at 35.

He is an inspiration for budding cricketers with his consistency in the batting and being one of the highest run getters at the highest level. During a chat with his IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB), Kohli revealed that he doesn’t want to have any regrets as a sportsperson once he is done playing the game.

“I think as a sportsman, we do have an end-date to our careers. So I am just working backwards. I don’t want to finish my career thinking ‘oh, what if I have done this on that particular day’ because I can’t keep going on and on forever. So, it’s just about not leaving any undone business behind and not have any regrets later, which I am sure I won’t,” Kohli said at RCB’s Royal Gala Dinner.

He further added that he would take a long break and spend quality time with his family after his retirement before deciding on his next chapter.

“Once I am done, I will be gone, you won’t see me for a while. So, I want to give it everything I have till the time I play, and that’s the only thing that keeps me going,” he ended.
