As far as I am concerned, playing more cricket when I am done, I don't think I am in that zone to be honest," the 30-year-old said ahead of the opening ODI against Australia on Saturday. <p></p> <p></p>Retired cricketers such as <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ab-de-villiers/">AB de Villiers</a> and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/brendon-mccullum/">Brendon McCullum</a> are regularly seen playing in T20 leagues such as the IPL and BBL but Kohli says he isn't interested in joining the bandwagon. <p></p> <p></p>"I have played enough cricket in the last five years and I cannot comment on even the first thing I do when I retire because I don't feel like I am going to pick up the bat again," he said. <p></p> <p></p>"I will be spent, the day I finish I will be totally spent and that's the reason I am going to stop playing cricket. So I don't see myself coming back and playing again. Once I am done, I will be done, and I won't be seen around the scene," Kohli said. <p></p> <p></p>The skipper was all praise for his team's batting line-up and said the line-up looks strong heading into the ODI World Cup starting May 30 in England. <p></p> <p></p>"In the last 12 months, our ODI batting has been very strong and openers are a very big factor in that. There was a phase in the middle when we addressed the issue of middle overs and from 25-40 overs we tried to change our batting style," he said. <p></p> <p></p>"Where our batting is at the moment, the team management and I are very comfortable because we have results in ODI cricket and performances have been very good as well." <p></p> <p></p>In fact, Kohli felt the Indian team is perfectly balanced in every aspect. "The bowling has been balanced too. In one-day cricket, any team can beat you on any given day. But as a team you have to give your best and take your strongest eleven. And we feel as a one-day team we are on the right track, and are on our full strength," he said.
