Virat Kohli, who’s prepping for the 2023 World Cup starting October 5, has his fans buzzing with questions about his participation in the 2027 World Cup in South Africa. When that tournament rolls around, Virat will be close to 39 years old – a significant factor considering the demands of international cricket.
AB de Villiers, Virat’s former IPL mate from Royal Challengers Bangalore, shared his thoughts on YouTube. He feels it’s tough to say whether Virat will play in the 2027 World Cup. AB suggested that if India clinches the 2023 World Cup, Virat might consider retiring from ODIs to focus on Test cricket and enjoy a bit of IPL action, alongside cherishing family time.
So, the big question about 2027 remains unanswered, with AB hinting that Virat himself would likely prioritize the upcoming World Cup before thinking about the next one.
