Former India skipper and modern-day batting great, Virat Kohli is currently in action for his franchise RCB in the ongoing Indian Premier League 2024. He is currently the leading run-scorer in the current season of the tournament, scoring 661 runs in 13 innings in the current season, with an amazing average of 66.10 and a strike rate of 155.16, hitting a century and 5 half-centuries.

Meanwhile, Kohli himself has opened up about his plans after retirement from the cricket. In a recent meetup during the Gala Dinner hosted by RCB in Bengaluru, Kohli spoke his heart out while discussing his post-retirement plans.

Here's what Virat Kohli said about his post-retirement plans

“It's quite simple, I think as a sportsman, we 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 had 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,” said Kohli.

“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,” he added later.

Kohli will be seen in action for India in the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2024, which will be played in the USA and West Indies starting next month. It will also be his sixth successive appearance in the T20 World Cup since he started representing India in the ICC T20 World Cup 2012 in Sri Lanka.

Kohli is also India's leading run-scorer in the ICC T20 World Cup history. The fans and experts are also speculating that it might be his last appearance in the T20 World Cup 2024.
