After breaking Sachin Tendulkar's record to become the fastest in 10,000 ODI races, Virat Kohli said his method remains the same: work hard in every race and never take things for granted.
"Even after playing for 10 years" I do not feel like I have a right to anything here, "said Kohli BCCI.tv ." You still have to work hard for every race that qualifies internationally while you play for your country because there are many people who want it very much and when you are in that position, you must have the same hunger and passion. "You should never take things for granted, never take it easy at any time."
Capturing India is a difficult task, especially because the world's number one hitter, as Tendulkar discovered, but at the same time has not had a stopover. Heights as a batter is a tribute to Kohli's mental determination, as well as physical fitness. Furthermore, despite the constant shining of the spotlight, Kohli's approach has rarely deviated, highlighted by the 20 hundreds of ODI in successful pursuits.
"I have been able to improve my physical and mental abilities just to concentrate on what" The needs of the team, and in that process have been scored more races than I might have otherwise had if you were thinking of me own hitting or something, "he said." So I focused on the situation and I'm glad I could help the team by contributing the bat. My duty is to score races and have done that for a long period, everything has gathered for this moment, but the intention must always be in each game, in each situation, look for what the team needs and only score as many races as possible "
But, above all, his greatest source of joy is still more homelike in nature – having been able to play the game for so long, with a few years remaining in the tank.
"Understand that you've arrived so away in your career playing for 10 years is something very special for me because I love "Practice a lot and you want to play more and more, and that is the most important thing for me, so I am happy to play for so long and I hope that many more years to come, "he said. . "I never thought I could achieve this feat or I would reach this stage, I always thought that I only wanted to play for India, I never thought that this day would come and it just tells me that if you are focused on the process and the right things, then these things they become irrelevant after a while.
