On his 35th birthday, Virat Kohli marked a historic moment in cricket, equalling Sachin Tendulkar’s world record of 49 ODI hundreds during India’s World Cup match against South Africa in Kolkata.
Achieving this milestone in his 277th innings and 289th match, Kohli surpassed Tendulkar’s innings record of 451. Scoring an unbeaten 101 off 121 balls, he led India to a formidable total of 326. In the 2023 World Cup, Kohli has notched up two centuries and four half-centuries, making him the second-highest run-scorer in the tournament.
With over 1000 runs and five centuries in 2023, Kohli’s stellar ODI performance continues, breaking Tendulkar’s record of seven instances of scoring more than 1000 runs in a year.
India, with seven consecutive wins, secured their spot as the first team to qualify for the World Cup semi-finals.
