On November 5, Virat Kohli celebrated his 35th birthday in a remarkable fashion. He scored his 49th One Day International (ODI) century, thereby matching the record set by cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar for the most ODI centuries.
Kohli's exceptional performance on the field was instrumental in India's commanding total of 326 runs against South Africa in the World Cup match. The South African team, in response, could only manage to score 83 runs, leading to a resounding victory for India by a margin of 243 runs.
In addition to his extraordinary batting prowess, Kohli also caught the attention of spectators with his lively antics on the field. He was seen dancing joyfully to the tune of 'Chaleya', a popular song from the Bollywood movie 'Jawan', featuring superstar Shahrukh Khan. Kohli even replicated Khan's iconic pose, much to the delight of the crowd.
The charismatic cricketer didn't stop there. He was also spotted grooving to the catchy number 'Ainvayi Ainvayi' from the film 'Band Baaja Baaraat'. This film holds a special place in Kohli's heart as it marked the acting debut of his wife, Anushka Sharma.
Virat Kohli's record-equalling century came off 119 balls. It was a special day for him, not just because of the record but also because it was his birthday. He expressed his gratitude for the love from fans and described the experience as "the stuff of dreams."
