A day to remember for Virat Kohli on Wednesday when he broke India’s World Cup semi-final against New Zealand in Mumbai. When Kohli reached his century in 106 deliveries against the Kiwis, he broke Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 ODI centuries. The 35-year-old now has 50 ODI tons, the most by any batsman in the history of 50-year-old cricket.

Sachin paaji was there in the stands. It is very difficult for me to express it. My life partner, my hero – he’s sitting there. With all these fans at the Wankhede,” Kohli said.
