Virat Kohli, the Indian cricket superstar, has etched his name in the annals of World Cup history with a remarkable performance in the ongoing tournament. Over the past few days, he has shattered records and set new benchmarks, cementing his status as one of the all-time greats of the game.
One of the most significant records broken by Kohli was surpassing the legendary Sachin Tendulkar's tally of 673 runs in World Cups. Kohli reached this milestone during the semi-final match against Australia, where he scored a brilliant 96 runs.
This achievement not only placed him at the top of the list of highest run-scorers in World Cups but also showcased his exceptional consistency and ability to perform on the biggest stage.
Kohli's run-scoring spree didn't stop there. He went on to become the first player in World Cup history to aggregate over 700 runs in a single tournament. His final tally of 711 runs is a testament to his prowess as a batsman and his ability to lead from the front.
Kohli's dominance in the tournament extended to his ability to convert opportunities into substantial scores. He became the first player to register eight 50+ scores in a single World Cup. This consistency and ability to make the most of his starts were crucial in India's march to the semi-finals.
In the semi-final against Australia, Kohli produced a masterclass, scoring the highest individual score by a batsman in a World Cup semi-final. His innings of 96 runs was a display of pure class and timing, showcasing his ability to handle pressure and deliver under the most demanding circumstances.
Kohli's achievements at the World Cup have been nothing short of extraordinary. He has not only broken records but also inspired his team and demonstrated his exceptional talent on the global stage. His name will forever be associated with the World Cup, and his legacy as one of the greatest batsmen of all time is firmly established.
