But when someone that you have looked up to in some ways, passes away like that, it does put things in perspective,” Kohli mentioned on the eve of the primary ODI in opposition to New Zealand right here. “…at the end of the day, life can be so fickle. It’s so unpredictable. I think a lot of the times we get too caught up in the pressures of what we have to do tomorrow…we really forget living life and enjoying life and just appreciating and being grateful for the life we have,” he added.
Kohli mentioned a tragedy like this makes one realise that nothing will be extra essential than having fun with each second of existence.

“You begin issues from a special perspective out of the blue and also you need to take pleasure in each second you’re going by. You realise that what you’re doing on the finish of the day shouldn’t be an important factor. The most essential factor is life itself,” Kohli signed off.
