After so far another successful chase on Sunday, ODIs and T20Is Indian captain Virat Kohli match former cricketer Sachin Tendulkar’s 17 centuries while chasing. Other than, while Tendulkar made 232 innings to achieve it, Kohli has completed it just in 96 papers.
Kohli match-winning 122 on Sunday during the first ODI against England was his 27th in generally.
Comparisons with great Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar crop up now and then Kohli made it clear that it will be impossible to achieve the impressive numbers of ‘Master Blaster.’
Kohli said “I might not play that long (24 years). 200 Tests, 100 international centuries. Those are incredible numbers and will be impossible to achieve. But yes, I want to make a difference and always believe that I must leave the game on a better note.”
He also added that one of the top secrets of his incredible success is “not having to many close people” in his life which adds obstacles such as “distractions” and “time management” on the path of glory.
In an interview for bcci.tv, Kohli said to former England captain Nasser Hussain “Luckily, I don’t have too many people in my life that I am close to. I think that helps. If you have too many people and too many friends you speak to, you get distracted and your time management becomes impossible.”
Kohli feels that one should not edge his aims, he said “I think, somewhere as sportsmen, we somehow already limit ourselves to what we do without even knowing how much we can do. That’s something I never put a limit on.”
“I always love to explore my maximum ability as far as my intensity in the field is concerned. And even with managing time, the day I get burnt out is the day; I start cutting down on things. I never put any limitations on what I want to do in life.”
“You just got to create a good balance and move forward. It’s been fine till now. I am able to maintain a balance as of now I can say,” he said.
