In a recent interaction on social media platform X (formerly Twitter), Australian cricket sensation David Warner shared his insights on the future of Indian cricket icon Virat Kohli in World Cup tournaments.
Virat Kohli’s stature in Indian cricket
Kohli, often hailed as one of the best batters in the history of the game, has been a pivotal figure in the Indian cricket team for over 15 years. With a World Cup victory in 2011 and a stellar performance in the 2023 final against Australia, Kohli has etched his name among the cricketing greats.
Looking ahead after 2023 World Cup
Despite the heartbreak in the 2023 World Cup final, both the Indian cricket team and its fanbase are gearing up for future challenges. The upcoming T20 World Cup in the USA and West Indies in June 2024, and the ODI World Cup scheduled four years later, present new opportunities for Team India.

Future in World Cups
As Kohli recently celebrated his 35th birthday, questions arose about his participation in the next ODI World Cup in 2027. However, Australian cricket star Warner expressed a unique perspective during a lighthearted exchange on X (formerly Twitter).
David Warner explains why Kohli can play 2031 World Cup
In response to a fan’s query about his own World Cup aspirations, Warner humorously stated that he might even play the 2031 World Cup. This prompted a fan to express hope for both Warner and Kohli’s presence in the 2027 World Cup. In a surprising twist, Warner backed Kohli’s potential participation in the 2031 edition, citing the former Indian skipper’s exceptional fitness and deep love for the game.
In a tweet, Warner stated, “No reason why he can’t, he is very fit and loves the game so much,” expressing confidence in Kohli’s ability to continue representing India in World Cup tournaments beyond 2027.
