Kohli is the best batsman in the world.

Kohli said while talking in the pre-match press conference before the first ODI against Australia, “As far as I am concerned playing more cricket once I am done, I don’t think so I am in that zone right now (chuckles), to be honest.  I have played enough cricket in the last five years and look I can’t comment on even the first thing I am going to do when I am going to retire because I don’t feel I am going to pick the bat once again when I am done, to be honest”.

“I would be spent, the day I finish, I would be totally spent and that’s the reason I am going to stop playing cricket. In fact, I don’t see myself coming back again and again. I think once I am done, I would be done and I wouldn’t seen around the scene. A holiday is good but not picking up the bat again”.
