Virat Kohli has equaled the record of Sachin Tendulkar for the most One-day International cricket centuries by scoring his 49th century against South Africa at the Eden Gardens. He remained unbeaten at 101 runs, which he scored in 119 balls including ten boundaries. Kohli achieved this remarkable feat in just 289 ODI matches, which is 173 matches faster than Tendulkar, who achieved the same feat in his 463rd match.
Kohli scored his unbeaten 101 off 121 deliveries. The 34-year-old batter also racked up his 79th hundred for India, 21 short of Sachin’s world record of 100 centuries. Earlier, Kohli became only the second Indian batter after Sachin Tendulkar to score 3000 runs against South Africa in international cricket.
In the match against Sri Lanka at the Wankhede Stadium a few days back, Kohli set the record for most 1000-run years in ODIs in men’s cricket (8), breaking the previous record of Tendulkar, who scored 1000 runs in a calendar year seven times. Kohli has been in great form in the World Cup. He is the third-highest run-getter in the World Cup 2023 with 442 runs, hitting four half-centuries and one century.
