To get the estimated number of centuries, Virat will make, in his career prior retirement, we will have a certain assumption. Below are the assumption we have considered-
Virat’s current age is around 31 years & we will assume that he will play till the age of 38 Years (18 years of cricket career), i.e for next 7 years till 2026.
For the next 3 years (2020, 2021 & 2022) he will be on the peak of his career, so his performance will be as like 2017 to 19.
In the next 2 year after 2022 (I.e. 2023 & 2024) his performance will be moderate & there after 2 years will not be very good for Virat Kohli.
From the last 3 years (2017-2019)- an Average number of ODI innings he plays is 22 & Avegare number of Test Innings he plays is 18 innings, so we will consider that this is going to continue for next 3 year and slightly decline after that.
