Kohli’s outstanding performance, with his 48th ODI century, was a key factor in India’s win, supported by a disciplined performance from the bowlers. The photo featured a one-word caption that quickly went viral on social media. Rohit captioned it “Together,” and he posted this image on his Instagram account.
In the meantime, Virat Kohli expressed his delight at playing in a Cricket World Cup hosted in his home country. His unbeaten century helped India secure a commanding seven-wicket victory over Bangladesh and brought him within striking distance of Sachin Tendulkar’s record for ODI hundreds. Kohli’s 48th one-day international century left him just one short of matching Tendulkar’s all-time record of 49 hundreds at this level. His innings, which included 97 balls, six fours, and four sixes, marked his third score of over fifty in four innings, following contributions of 85 and 55 not out against Australia and Afghanistan.
Kohli shared his thoughts after the match, stating, “I’ve had a few fifties in World Cups and haven’t converted them, so I just wanted to finish the game off this time around. The pitch was pretty good, it allowed me to play my game and just hit the gaps.”
India’s victory in this match marked their fourth consecutive win in the tournament.
