Amidst this uncertainty, cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar has stepped forward to share his candid views on what lies ahead for Kohli.

He not only surpassed Tendulkar to become the batter with the most ODI centuries but also shattered his long-standing record for the most runs in a single World Cup edition. The sensational outing of the Delhi-born cricketer in the world event showcased his prowess and solidified his status as the preeminent batter in contemporary cricket.
