"As sportsmen, we do have an end date to our careers. I'm just working backwards," Kohli said.

"I don't want to finish my career thinking of what if I had done this on that particular day. I can't keep going on and on forever. It's just about not leaving any undone business behind and not having any regrets later, which I'm very sure I won't have," he said with a smile.

Kohli further added that he wants to give everything that he has in his remaining years.

"Once I'm done, I'll be gone. You won't see me for a while, so I wanna give everything I have till the time I play, and that's the only thing that keeps me going," Kohli promised to his fans,.leaving them emotional.
