Virat Kohli, on Sunday (November 5), equaled Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 ODI centuries as India thrashed South Africa by 243 runs to make it eight wins from eight in the ongoing ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023.

With the former India captain celebrating his 35th birthday, the fans were expecting something special from him and he did not disappoint. He went on to play a sublime unbeaten knock of 101 runs on a tough Eden Gardens track to put India in the driver’s seat after Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted toe bat first.

India made a quick start thanks to Rohit’s 24-ball 40 runs knock before losing his and Shubman Gill’s wicket in quick succession. Virat Kohli, however, did not let the Proteas make further inroads in the game. He shared a 134-run stand with Shreyas Iyer (77) for the third wicket before going on to complete his century and ensuring that India cross the 300-run mark.

India’s performance with the ball was equally impressive. Left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja blew the Proteas away by picking up a stunning five-wicket haul. He finished the game with figures of 5 for 33 while Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Shami took two wickets each as South Africa were bowled out for a paltry total of 83 runs.

Virat Kohli dances on Anushka Sharma’s song:

It does not matter whether Virat Kohli has a bat in his hands or not, he rarely fails to disappoint the fans when he is on the field. And he was at it again on Sunday. After entertaining the fans with his stunning century, the right-handed batsman entertained them by dancing on the field.

The DJ played his wife Anushka Sharma’s ‘Ainvayi Ainvayi’ song, and Virat Kohli couldn’t resist dancing, much to the delight of the crowd.

Speaking at the end of the game, he also spoke about equaling Tendulkar’s record, saying: “It is all too much for me to take in now, to equal my hero’s record is something special for me. He is perfection when it comes to batting. It’s a very emotional moment for me. I know where I come from, I know the days I have watched him on TV. Just to get that appreciation from him means a lot to me.”
