Sri Lanka captain’s absurd reaction upon learning of Kohli’s 49th century was, “Why would I congratulate him?”  On his 35th birthday, Kohli tied Tendulkar’s record for the most ODI hundreds as India defeated South Africa by a commanding 243 runs in Kolkata.

The most certain answer was revealed on Sunday evening, capping up a long-awaited suspenseful event in international cricket. On his 35th birthday, Virat Kohli tied Sachin Tendulkar’s record for the most ODI hundreds while en route to his undefeated 101 in India’s convincing 243-run victory over South Africa at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. 

Well wishes flooded in from all across the world to congratulate the legend of the modern period on his incredible World Cup 2023 performance. When told about Kohli’s record, Kusal Mendis was therefore expected to react similarly, but the Sri Lankan captain had an absurd response.

Following Rohit Sharma’s explosive opening performance of forty runs in 24 balls on a challenging Kolkata track, South Africa recovered to take two wickets in only 28 balls as India lost both of their openers. 

Subsequently, Kohli and Shreyas Iyer joined forces for a third-wicket stand of 134 runs, during which the former captain of India reached his second World Cup century and his 49th ODI century. Meanwhile, Iyer slammed 77 from 87 in his second fifty-over match as the hosts set a target of 327 runs.

After Mohammed Siraj opened the floodgates in the second over and claimed five wickets as India defeated South Africa for just 83 runs in 27.1 overs, Ravindra Jadeja responded by tearing through the middle order.

With one game remaining before they go to the semifinals, India’s unbeaten league record is up to eight out of eight thanks to the victory. The Netherlands will be India’s next opponent on November 12 in Bengaluru.
