‘I hadn’t thought I’d score so any hundreds’

Kohli, however, has revealed that he never thought about scoring these many hundreds.

“I’ve always dreamed of doing this, but I never thought things would turn out exactly like this. Nobody can plan these things, the way your tour is going, and the way things come in front of you,” Kohli said on Sports star.

“I never thought I would score so many hundreds and so many runs in these 12 years,” said the 34-year-old.

Kohli, who turns 35 on November 5, revealed how he made changes in his discipline and lifestyle to become a better cricketer.

“My only focus was for the team to do well and win games for the team in difficult situations. So, I made quite a few changes along the way in terms of discipline and lifestyle.”

“I always had the drive, but I didn’t have the professionalism. Now, I have a single-minded focus on how I want to play the game, and after that, the results I have achieved are from playing anyway,” he said.

The Delhi cricketer also said that it is the effort a cricketer puts into his performance that helps him get recognition.

“The game recognizes effort. Honestly, that’s what I’ve learned from my career.

“I played cricket giving my first percent on the field, and God has given me the blessings I got from him, and I never thought things would turn out like this,” he said.

Kohli has amassed 13, 437 runs from 287 ODIs at an average of 57.92. He holds several records in international cricket, including the third most runs scored in a calendar year, having amassed 2818 runs across formats in 2017.

India are off to a 100 per cent start to the 2023 World Cup, having won six out of six matches, including wins against Australia, Pakistan, New Zealand and England. The Men in Blue’s game against Sri Lanka on Thursday will be followed by games against South Africa (November 5) and the Netherlands (November 12).
