Virat Kohli is one of the best batsmen in the world. Be it statistics or his playing style, the right-handed batsman can be seen dominating on all fronts. Despite the player achieving so much in his life through his sensational performances, former India spinner and former teammate Harbhajan Singh feels that Kohli still has some 'unfinished business'. The retired Indian player said that the World Cup trophy drought since 2011 is something that Kohli will regret.

“The IPL is coming and then there is the World Cup. Virat Kohli's bat will make the same noise as before, maybe louder. Of course, Virat has (unfinished business). That World Cup trophy. He last made it then Won when he wasn't. Virat' (great). Won the World Cup in his first attempt but that's the funny thing about luck. But from there, Kohli became such a big player but without a World Cup – he won the World Cup in 2015, 2019. And now 2023 has also been played. But still the trophy has not come home, so he must be regretting it,” Harbhajan said on his YouTube channel.

Kohli was part of the Indian team that won the 2011 Cricket World Cup by defeating Sri Lanka in the final. After that, India failed to win not only the World Cup but also any ICC trophy. Harbhajan said that Kohli can be satisfied only if he wins another World Cup for India again.

“No matter how many records he makes, how many runs he scores, as far as I know, his hunger will never wane. And a big part of that is to lift that shiny trophy. The ultimate dream of every player is the World Cup. Winning cups is a trophy. Your records stick with you till the end. But people don't remember records; they remember trophies,” Harbhajan said.
