“Kids nowadays days spend more time on phones and i-pads. In our days, we used to be out and spend more time playing some on the fields, streets. I remember in my childhood, if anyone of my friend had an imported game, we used to plan that one day we all will go to his house and play,” he said at an event in New Delhi.
Kohli and RP-SG chairman Sanjiv Goenka have joined hands to launch Indian sports Awards to honour sports-person for their outstanding achievements.
Kohli, who continues to get better by the day, emphasised on fitness and said that if a player wants to achieve his goals, he needs to be physically fit. Ever since making his international debut in 2008, Kohli has proved his worth across all formats with the bat. The 28-year old said that more cricketers should come up and help India achieve the tag of a ‘sporting nation’.
“With another 8-10 years of cricket more left in me, I want to keep my game at the peak. We limit ourselves even before we try. Most of the people stopped at 70 per cent, so we need to push until it’s done. Thus, I want to contribute to the betterment of the sports until I am connected to the same.”
“So, I really train hard in my cricket life because rest of the life I won’t be playing sports. So, we need to make the most of the day. Small things matter to me. What I eat, how I train etc,” he added.Via
