Virat Kohli achieved the milestone on the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai with the legendary Sachin Tendulkar himself in attendance.
Virat Kohli grew to become the primary batter within the historical past of the sport to rating 50 ODI centuries. He overtook his idol Sachin Tendulkar during the World Cup semifinal towards New Zealand in Mumbai on Wednesday. Tendulkar, who was additionally current during the match, has now reacted to Kohli’s new report.
Taking to Twitter, Tendulkar wrote that he couldn’t be happier that an Indian broke his report for many centuries in cricket. “The first time I met you in the Indian dressing room, you were pranked by other teammates into touching my feet. I couldn’t stop laughing that day. But soon, you touched my heart with your passion and skill. I am so happy that that young boy has grown into a ‘Virat’ player. I couldn’t be happier that an Indian broke my record. And to do it on the biggest stage – in the World Cup Semi-final – and at my home ground is the icing on the cake,” Tendulkar tweeted.
The first time I met you within the Indian dressing room, you had been pranked by different teammates into touching my ft. I couldn’t cease laughing that day. But quickly, you touched my coronary heart together with your ardour and ability. I’m so comfortable that that younger boy has grown right into a ‘Virat’ participant.
