In a witty incident, Australian batsman and opener David Warner backed Virat Kohli to continue playing the World Cup till the 2031 edition. By that time, Virat Kohli will be 43 years old, an age where most of the cricketers retire. Most of the players play their last World Cup around the age of 39 or 40, but Warner’s hilarious take on Kohli’s World Cup journey seems to give an array of hope to the Indian fans.
In the 2023 World Cup, Virat Kohli was the leading run-getter smashing 765 runs in 11 innings so far. He hit a total of two hundreds and six half centuries to lead Team India to swashbuckling wins. He also broke the record of India’s Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar who smashed 673 runs in the 2003 World Cup. The 35-year old batter was named as the Player of the Tournament in the 2023 World Cup, a milestone indeed for Virat Kohli.

On David Warner’s official Twitter handle, a fan replied to David Warner “Hope Virat too plays till 2031 wc” with David Warner replying “No reason why he can’t, he is very fit and loves the game so much.” His witty reply seems to win the hearts of the Indian fans as everyone knows about his level of dedication to fitness.
