Indian Captain Virat Kohli who is the world's no.1 Test and ODI batsman said that though cricket is an important part of his life but it is not his priority.
Indian Captain stated on his official app that Cricket his first priority but the family still remains his biggest priority. 30 year old said, “"Eight years down the line the priority would be my family, priority would be myself, Anushka and our family only by then. So that would be the priority for us. And cricket would obviously a part of my life always but I feel that family should be a priority at all times because nothing is bigger than life. Cricket is a part of life and nothing should be bigger than life. He further added that I know people will take things a bit too seriously that if you don’t say cricket is your life then you are not committed enough, I don’t believe in all that. If I am committed to talking right now about something, I am committed to this.
Saying that family is more important than his professional life, Kohli said, “So I think, the priority will be family, should be family and cricket will always be a very special part of my life but it is not the most important thing in life, it is the way I see it. But I think eight years down the line I will be totally focused towards my family.”
Recently, Kohli leaded team through a historic tour of Australia, during which the team won the Test and ODI series by 2-1 and settled with a 1-1 draw in the T20I series.
