Kohli first sought help from New Zealand, then scored a strong century against them, this video is special

Virat Kohli continued his brilliant streak in the World Cup 2023 and continued his performance in the semi-finals as well. Not only amazing, Kohli created history in the final. Kohli scored a world record 50th ODI century in ODI cricket in the semi-final match against New Zealand on Wednesday 15 November at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. He became the first batsman in the world to do so. Kohli’s shots were not only interesting but he also did something in between which surprised everyone. A substitute player from New Zealand supported him well in this.

Wednesday was a special day for the Indian cricket team and its fans at Wankhede because Virat Kohli did what no one had expected. Kohli scored his third century in this World Cup and also broke Sachin Tendulkar’s world record of 49 ODI centuries. Kohli played an inning of 117 runs in 113 balls, which was also his highest score in this World Cup.

First Kohli asked for help

This innings of Kohli was not special just because he scored a record century. But it was also important because he scored this century in the humid afternoon of Mumbai, tiring the bowlers and fielders of New Zealand. Kohli did this feat without giving any chance to the Kiwi team. Apparently during this period Kohli also felt tired in between.

While moving towards the century, one such occasion came, when during the drinks break, Kohli felt very thirsty and he started drinking energy drink from the substitute player of the Kiwi team. Despite being in the opposing team and being beaten with Kohli’s bat, the Kiwi team did not protest against it and showed sportsmanship. ICC also posted its video on its social media platform, which is being liked a lot.
