AFG vs IND: Virat Kohli exceeds Sachin Tendulkar to set another World Cup record.

Virat Kohli broke Sachin Tendulkar’s World Cup record with a masterful half-century. Bangladesh was destroyed by India by 8 wickets.

With his blistering century against Afghanistan, India captain Rohit Sharma broke multiple records in the match. Meanwhile, former captain Virat Kohli reached a significant milestone on Wednesday with his hard-working half-century in match No. 9 of the ICC World Cup 2023. When India traveled back home for the second game of the ICC tournament at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, local star Virat Kohli broke Sachin Tendulkar’s record for most runs scored in a World Cup of cricket.

At the 50-over and T20I ICC World Cups, the 34-year-old surpassed all previous scorers in history. At the ICC World Cup, in his 53rd innings, Kohli overtook Tendulkar. In World Cup cricket, the former captain of India has surpassed Tendulkar’s record of 2278 runs. The batting legend played in his first World Cup in the 2011 ICC tournament. India, the reigning winners twice, last raised the World Cup trophy at the 2011 competition.

Kohli smashes the two records held by Tendulkar.

In just nine innings, Kohli scored 282 runs during the 2011 World Cup. The batting legend against Bangladesh in his first World Cup match at Mirpur produced a magnificent century without a loss. Kohli is the only Indian batter with more World Cup runs than batting greats Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly when it comes to participating in the One Day International (ODI) format. Five T20 World Cups have included the legendary batsman Virat Kohli. He is the most prolific run scorer in T20 World Cup history. The former captain of India has scored 1141 runs in 27 T20 World Cup matches.

By making his 46th 50-plus score in an effective run chase for India in One-Day Internationals, Kohli also overtook Tendulkar. The batting great Tendulkar helped India win ODI run chases with 45, 50, and more knocks. Speaking of the just-finished World Cup match between Bangladesh and India, Virat Kohli struck an undefeated fifty-five off fifty-six balls to ensure a convincing victory for the Men in Blue. India managed to chase down the 273-run target with 15 overs remaining, thanks to an explosive knock of 131 off 84 balls from captain Rohit, who scored 55 off 56 balls.
