Internet Desk: India skipper Virat Kohli aims to play for another 10 years’ if he remains fit till that point of time. In about two months he will turn 29. According to the Indian captain, at times many players don’t understand where to stop while training.”Lot of us don’t actually know how far we can push ourselves. May be at times, without knowing, we are only able to realise 70 percent of our potential. Therefore it is necessary to push yourself until you are done. For example, if I train as hard as I train now, I will possibly play for another 10 years,” Kohli said during a promotional event.
The India skipper through his ‘Virat Kohli Foundation’ (VKF) in association with the RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group, will award scholarships to the individuals who have undertaken exceptional initiatives to promote sports at the grass-root level.
The VKF has pledged a minimum of Rs. 2 crore to be utilized every year on the beneficiaries of the scholarships. The shortlisted athletes/initiatives will be tracked through the year and their progress monitored.
“India has made rapid strides as a sporting nation. The days of being a one-sport country are behind us. The time is just right to introduce an institution that will recognise and reward our top sporting achievers and put the spotlight on those who are expected to do the country proud in the years to come,” Kohli said at the launch of the RP-SG Indian Sports Honours.
“Initially, we are investing Rs 2 crore but the amount can go up depending upon the performance of the athletes. I wouldn’t have been anything without cricket. It has made me what I am today and if I can touch people’s lives, it will be a great thing,” Kohli said.
