India captain Virat Kohli says he has plans to continue playing cricket at the highest level for 8-10 more years.

Kohli, speaking at the launch of the RP-SG Indian Sports Honours- an initiative dedicated to rewarding sporting excellence put the focus on fitness of players and said he has almost a decade in him if he continues to train hard.

“I think a lot of us don’t realise how good we are. We limit ourselves already before we (can) try. That’s what I felt because I only have eight more years, 10 maximum if I really train hard,” said Kohli.

Besides being one of the most talented batsmen of this era, the 28-year-old is also regarded as one of the fittest athletes in the world and it's hard to write him off.

Kohli made his international debut way back in 2008 and already has almost a decade of experience under his belt.

Recently, players like AB de Villiers and MS Dhoni have proved that age is just a number and players can perform at the highest level even in their mid-30s. So why not Virat?

Kohli has played 60 Tests, 194 ODIs and 50 T20Is for India scoring 4658, 8587 and 1830 runs respectively.
