New Delhi: He is one of the fittest athlete in the Indian team at the moment but star cricketer Virat Kohli finds Sachin Tendulkar the epitome of fitness and hopes to play with same vigour when he reaches the veteran batsman's current age of 40.




“Hope I can play for the country for such a long span as Sachin (Tendulkar) has and remain as fit as he is. His fitness level is amazing. If I can achieve 60-70 per cent of what he has achieved so far in his career, I will be more than happy,” said Kohli.

“His hardwork is very inspiring for the younger generation,” he told reporters at a function where his endorsement deal with the leading sportswear brand, Adidas was announced here today.

Replying to a query, Kohli said South African speedsters Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel—were the two most dangerous bowlers he has faced in his international career so far.
