Virat Kohli, the Team India batter achieved a milestone that players can only dream about. He completed his 50th ODI century during the ODI World Cup semi-final. This knock was crucial for him and the team as this powered the side to a massive total in the first innings.
He chose the perfect situation and scenario to write this epic story. In front of a packed Wankhede stadium along with the presence of his wife Anushka Sharma and his idol Sachin Tendulkar. The batter has been performing his role admirably till now and will most likely finish as the leading run-getter of the ODI World Cup.
Former Pakistani wicket-keeper batter believes that Babar Azam can be the one to break Virat Kohli’s record of 50 ODI tons. He discussed how youngster Shubman Gill can also be the one to get behind this record sooner rather than later.
Kamran Akmal said on ARY news, “Vo (record) top-3 waale he tod sakte hai 50 hundred ka. Middle-order batsman nahi tod payega. Hamare paas Babar (Azam) hai vo kar sakta hai. Top-3 mein khelta hai. Unke paas abhi (Shubman) Gill hai, vo peeche lag sakta hai is record ke.”
“I’m trying to dig deep” : Virat Kohli on his role in the team
Virat Kohli spoke about his achievement and how Sachin congratulated him. He said, “The great man just congratulated me. It feels like a dream. Too good to be true. Big game for us and I played the role so that the guys around me can come and express themselves.”
The former Team India skipper added, “As I said, for me the most important thing is to make my team win. I’ve been given a role this tournament and I’m trying to dig deep. That’s the key to consistency – play according to the situation and play for the team.”
The right-handed batter spoke about his wife, Anushka Sharma and his idol, Sachin Tendulkar being in the stadium during this moment. He said, “It’s the stuff of dreams. Sachin paaji was there in the stands. It’s very difficult for me to express it. My life partner, my hero – he’s sitting there. And all these fans at the Wankhede. To get to 400 is amazing; a lot of credit needs to go to Shreyas. KL finished it with a flurry [of boundaries].”

Pakistani’s think they are more developed than India. Pakistani’s think they they can take over Kashmir. Pakistani’s think Babar Azam can break Virat Kolhi’s record of 50 ODI hundreds.
