Virat Kohli hit a record-equalling 49th ODI century and shared a 134-run partnership with Shreyas Iyer as India enthralled the Eden crowd, piling up 326 for five against South Africa in their World Cup match

Virat Kohli equalled Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 one-day international hundreds when he reached three figures in a World Cup match against South Africa on Sunday.

Kohli, on his 35th birthday, got to the landmark in 119 balls, including 10 fours, at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens.

Continuing with his high-risk game, Rohit Sharma gave India a flourishing start but South Africa pegged the hosts back by removing the captain and his opening partner Shubhman Gill in their World Cup match, here on Sunday.

Rohit hit a 24-ball 40 and shared a 62-run opening partnership with Shubman Gill (23) but the Proteas left them fighting at 105 for two after 15 overs.

Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bat first at the historic Eden Gardens stadium in Kolkata. No change for India while the Proteas make one change in their playing XI. Bavuma has opted to play an extra spinner in the side, hinting that the surface at Eden Gardens could be a dry one. The IND-SA clash is likely to be an enthralling one with the two teams sitting right at the top of ICC World Cup 2023 Points Table.

Former India captain Virat Kohli has the chance of a lifetime to score his 49th ODI century on his birthday. If Kohli achieves this milestone, he will join his idol Sachin Tendulkar as the players with the most centuries in the 50-over format.

In a series of firsts, India are the only team to have officially qualified for the knockout stages of ICC World Cup 2023. The Men in Blue are also the only side to have remained unbeaten in all their 7 matches so far. 

India, who have missed the services of star all-rounder Hardik Pandya in recent matches, finally received the bad news that the Indian vice-captain will not be part of the 2023 World Cup campaign due to the ankle injury he suffered in the Bangladesh game.
