Virat Kohli scripted history with a huge milestone in ODI cricket after scoring a hundred against New Zealand in the World Cup 2023 semi-final on Sunday, November 15. Kohli became the first-ever cricketer to score 50 ODI hundreds and broke Sachin Tendulkar’s long-standing record for most centuries in 50-over international cricket.

The former cricketer broke Sachin’s record of 49 hundreds at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens during a league stage game against South Africa on his birthday, November 5. He finally ended a wait by smashing a sensational century at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium with Sachin in his presence. 

Kohli took 106 balls to reach his hundred and celebrated a hundred with a jump in the air. The crowd at Wankhede erupted in a wild celebration, including his wife and Bollywood veteran Anushka Sharma. Sachin also applauded with claps and Virat acknowledged his icon’s reaction by bowling down. 

New Zealand Playing XI: Devon Conway, Rachin Ravindra, Kane Williamson (c), Daryl Mitchell, Tom Latham (wk), Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Mark Chapman, Tim Southee, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult
