When a fan commented on David Warner’s post on X about hoping to see Virat Kohli play the ODI World Cup in 2031, the Australian cricketer agreed with the sentiment. The 37-year-old stated that Virat Kohli “is very fit and loves the game so much,” which could fuel him to play the quadrennial event at the age of 43.
Last month, David Warner played a crucial part for Australia in lifting the ODI World Cup trophy for the sixth time in history at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad after defeating the hosts India in the final by six wickets. This was the second time in the illustrious career of David Warner that he won the coveted CWC title in the Australian colours after taking home the trophy for the first time in 2015.
As far as Virat Kohli is concerned, the Indian cricketing superstar is a former ODI World Cup winner in his own right, achieving the glorious feat during the 2011 campaign at home. He was one step away from repeating the same feat during the CWC 2023, but for Australia’s domination on the night of the final.
“Hope virat too plays till 2031 wc,” a fan commented on David Warner’s post on his official X account, which led to the Australian cricketer's response, “No reason why he can’t, he is very fit and loves the game so much.” It’s important to note that while David Warner might get proven right with his comments, a cricketer taking part in the highly competitive tournament like the ODI World Cup, at the age of 43 or more, has happened only three times in history.
