Yuvraj Singh worried even after India’s world record win, said ‘Is ODI cricket coming to an end?’
Speaking to India Today, Indian legend Sunil Gavaskar said ‘If he plays for another 5 or 6 years, he will reach 100 hundreds. It doesn’t have any message. He averages around 6-7 hundreds in a year. If that happens then definitely he can add 26 more hundreds (27 hundreds) in the next 5-6 years, if he plays for 40 years.
During this, Sunil Gavaskar also talked about the fitness of Virat Kohli and also said that Sachin also played cricket while maintaining his fitness till the age of 40.

Gavaskar further said, ‘Sachin Tendulkar also played till the age of 40 and he had maintained his fitness. Kohli is very conscious about his fitness. He is still the fastest runner between the wickets in this Indian team. When Dhoni was there then only you could say that Dhoni was fast. Today at this age he beats the youth. He is a champion at turning 1 into 2 and 2 into 3. So with this kind of fitness, it would not be surprising at all for him to play for 40 years.
