King Kohli: Virat Kohli Surpasses Sachin Tendulkar for Most ODI Centuries

Virat Kohli hit another milestone in his stellar cricket career, notching his 50th ODI hundred against New Zealand in the World Cup semi-final in Mumbai. He reached the landmark in the 42nd over, smacking eight fours and a six off Lockie Ferguson’s bowling. This was Kohli’s first-ever century in a World Cup knockout match. He also surpassed Sachin Tendulkar’s record for most runs scored in a single World Cup edition, achieving the feat in the 34th over.

This was Kohli’s 3rd century of this World Cup tournament, after scoring hundreds against Bangladesh and South Africa earlier. His ton versus Bangladesh came during a successful run chase in Pune, while his century against South Africa helped set up a match-winning total at Eden Gardens.

The rest have all been in this 2023 tournament. Cricket Legend Sachin Tendulkar congratulated Virat Kohli in a Twitter Post later on.


Kohli has been in scintillating form during this World Cup. His first four tons led to Indian victories, and this latest century has set India on a path to a big total against New Zealand.
