Travellers are stunned as Virat Kohli boards a domestic flight. The Video Has Gone Viral

Virat Kohli was spotted boarding a domestic airline, and his presence startled the other passengers.

On Sunday, India batter Virat Kohli equaled Sachin Tendulkar’s world record for the most number of hundreds in one-day international cricket. Kohli maintained his great form in the Cricket World Cup 2023, slamming his 49th ODI century against South Africa. On his 35th birthday, Kohli delivered an outstanding performance as India remained the only unbeaten team in the championship. Kohli made headlines again on Monday when he was recorded boarding a domestic flight, causing fellow passengers to go crazy. The passengers seated near the former India captain soon recognised him and began shooting photos and videos inside the plane.

Kohli equaled Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 one-day international hundreds as India bowled out South Africa for 83 in a 243-run defeat, with the superstar batsman describing his achievement as “the stuff of dreams.”

Kohli reached the milestone in 119 balls, including 10 fours, at Kolkata’s famed Eden Gardens, which was filled with approximately 70,000 supporters on his 35th birthday.

It took him 277 innings to score 49 hundreds at this level, compared to more than 450 for teammate India 2011 World Cup winner Tendulkar.
However, Kohli stated that Tendulkar is still in a league of his own.
“It’s a huge honour to equal my hero’s record,” he told reporters.
“People like comparisons; I’ll never be as good as him.” He is batting perfectly. It’s a difficult time.”
Kohli’s 101 not out was the highlight of India’s 326-5 before their formidable attack cleaned up as Rohit Sharma’s side won their eighth championship in a row.
After India captain Rohit won the toss, Kohli and Shreyas Iyer (77) compiled a third-wicket partnership of 134.

India, fresh from dismissing Sri Lanka for 55 in a 302-run hammering of the 1996 winners, caused another collapse by dismissing South Africa for 83.

It was South Africa’s second-lowest ODI total, trailing only their 69 against Australia in Sydney in 1993, and their lowest at a World Cup.

Left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja grabbed 5-33, ensuring India’s top rank at the end of the pool round, while South Africa lower-order batsman Marco Jansen’s 14 was the highest score of the innings.
