In the 2023 Cricket World Cup match between India and the Netherlands, Virat Kohli equaled yet another record set by Sachin Tendulkar.
The legendary batsman Virat Kohli, who was unable to earn his 50th ODI century, still equaled Sachin Tendulkar’s record with a second half-century in Sunday’s Cricket World Cup 2023 match in Bengaluru between India and the Netherlands. With this half-century, Kohli matched Sachin Tendulkar and Shakib Al Hasan as the batter with the most half-centuries in a single tournament. This was his seventh half-century in the Cricket World Cup this year. With five deliveries, five fours, and one six, Kohli scored 51 runs in the end.
