Star batter Virat Kohli, who is leading India’s run chart in the 2023 World Cup with 354 runs in 5 matches, shared his success formula. He emphasized his focus on personal growth, aiming to be a better version of himself every day.
Kohli kicked off his World Cup journey with a match-winning 85 against Australia in Chennai, followed by an unbeaten 55 against Afghanistan.
Despite a minor setback with a 16-run dismissal against Pakistan in Ahmedabad, he’s now just one century away from matching Sachin Tendulkar’s all-time ODI record of 49 hundreds, making it seem likely he’ll achieve this milestone in the World Cup.
“My focus has always been on self-improvement, be it in every practice session, every year, or every season. That’s what’s sustained my longevity in the game and my performance,” Virat said.
Kohli emphasized, “Without the mindset of continuous improvement, consistent performance is impossible. Setting performance as the ultimate goal might lead to complacency and a halt in personal growth.”
He revealed his approach, saying, “I’ve always aimed for betterment rather than chasing an elusive idea of excellence. The concept of excellence is indefinite, without a clear standard to define when you’ve truly achieved it.”
Kohli will be keen on continuing his good run when India take on England in their 6th World Cup 2023 match in Lucknow on Sunday, Octoer 29.
