Virat Kohli, the iconic former captain of the Indian cricket team and the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB), recently shared his post-retirement plans, indicating a desire for a well-deserved break before considering his next chapter beyond cricket.

Kohli’s monumental impact transcends the cricketing realm, even contributing to cricket’s inclusion in the Olympics for the 2028 Los Angeles Games. Addressing the question of what propels his unwavering dedication, Kohli, speaking at RCB’s Royal Gala Dinner in Bengaluru, emphasized the importance of leaving no room for regrets once his cricketing journey concludes.

“I’m simply looking ahead,” expressed the 35-year-old Kohli, reflecting on his career’s finite nature. “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 having any regrets later, which I am sure I won’t.”

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