The former India captain, Virat Kohli, set to celebrate his 35th birthday on November 5, has taken a trip down memory lane, reminiscing about his cricketing journey that began with his debut for India in 2008.
Star Sports prepared a special segment on Kohli and his international cricket journey, just before his birthday. During the feature, Kohli admitted that he never thought of scoring so many runs and hundreds for Team India.
Here’s what Virat Kohli said:
“If you talk about cricket, where my career is right now, God has blessed me with the career span and performances. I never thought it would pan out like this. No one can plan these things.”
“I never thought I would score so many centuries and runs in 12 years. This has been my dream always about how to make my team win and give my 100% always for my team. I always thought to do well for my team and make the team win in difficult situations.”
Virat Kohli has been in brilliant form in the ongoing World Cup 2023, amassing 354 runs in six matches at an impressive average of 88.50. He currently stands as the second-highest run-scorer for India in the competition and is just one century away from matching the legendary Sachin Tendulkar’s record for the most ODI centuries.
