Kohli Eyes Milestone Birthday Century as India Take on South Africa in World Cup

virat kohli birthday

The Indian cricket team’s undefeated juggernaut will face a stern test when they take on South Africa in a crucial ICC World Cup match at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Sunday. The top-of-the-table clash between the two strongest teams of the tournament so far will go a long way in deciding who finishes at the summit. 

While India have won all their matches convincingly so far, the Proteas are not far behind with just one loss against the Netherlands. But they would be eager to set the record straight against their formidable opponents. 

Kohli Eyes Milestone Birthday Century on Batting Beauty

However, all eyes will be on Virat Kohli as he turns 35 on the day of the big match. Kohli would be hoping to make the occasion truly memorable by scoring his 49th ODI century, equalling Sachin Tendulkar’s record. The batting-friendly Eden wicket offers him the perfect opportunity to achieve this special milestone on his birthday.

Kohli’s Hunger for Runs Unmatched; Can he Script Fairytale? 

Despite his unprecedented success, the modest Kohli maintains that he never imagined scoring so many runs or centuries. His insatiable hunger for big scores remains undiminished. He already has a ton and three fifties in the World Cup so far. Can he script a fairytale birthday century against the Proteas?

Meanwhile, the iconic Eden Gardens is expected to be packed with Kohli fans, many flaunting ‘Virat’ jerseys that have been the top-selling merchandise. The Cricket Association of Bengal’s plans to distribute Kohli masks have been shelved due to ICC regulations. But there is likely to be a sea of blue in the stands cheering for their hero.

Kohli’s milestone birthday has certainly added extra intrigue and excitement to what was already a marquee World Cup clash at a vibrant venue. Can India continue their winning run? Or will South Africa spoil the party? Sunday promises exhilarating action either way.
