Does anyone know at what age lord Krishna was killed by the hunter (rebirth of Bali)?

Are there any scripture references available for this?

Krishna lived for 125 years; in the Srimad Bhagavatam, Brahma tells Krishna that it is time tor his life on earth to end:

O Supreme Personality of Godhead, O my Lord, You have descended into the Yadu dynasty, and thus You have spent one hundred twenty-five autumns with Your devotees.

There's one more popular way to calculate his age: the Matsya Purana is said to contain a reference to Krishna being 89 years old during the Mahabharata War, and the Mausala Parva of the Mahabharata says that Krishna died 36 years after the war, which adds up to 125 years total.

@Keshav Srinivasan: Can the word 'killing' be used as in question? I think the Bhagavatha does not say like that.Could you please add some info on that too? –  A_runningMind Jul 12 at 16:21

Lord Krishna birth Date was 18th July 3228 BCE and Death date was 18th February 3102 BCE (the start of Kali Yuga) according to DrikPanchang

@KiranRS true and mahabharatha was happened when Shri Krishna was of age around 90 years. It was common back at that time. –  Mr_Green Jul 9 at 15:38
