Virat Kohli will attempt to surpass batting legend Sachin Tendulkar's record of 49 hundred in One-Day Internationals when India plays the Netherlands in their last World Cup group stage encounter on Sunday.
India, who topped the table, advanced to the semi-finals and will play either New Zealand, Pakistan, or Afghanistan to secure a spot in the summit match.
India trounced South Africa last week behind an unbroken century from Kohli. With an average of 108.6 and 543 runs in eight matches throughout this tournament, the former captain of India has been in incredible form.
But since their matchup with the Netherlands is meaningless, Kohli and other prominent players may have a rest before the semifinals the following week.
After learning about an odd social media trend during a recent conversation on Star Sports, Kohli was left perplexed.
The presenter asked Kohli to say "My delulu is the only solulu" to join the trend.
The host's request was acknowledged by Kohli, but he was surprised that the words "delulu" and "solulu" actually existed.
"Who talks like that? Aise kaun baat karta hain," Kohli asked the presenter.
Despite its current media attention, the Delulu movement originated in K-pop fandoms back in 2014.
The term "solulu" refers to a solution, but "delulu" is slang meaning illusion.
On X, previously Twitter, Tendulkar spearheaded the praises to the legendary Indian cricket player Virat Kohli, stating, "Well played Virat." I turned 50 (years old) earlier this year; it took me 365 days. In the next few days, I hope you break my record and progress from 49 to 50. Many congratulations.
Tendulkar's childhood hero, legendary India opener Sunil Gavaskar, meanwhile questioned who was responsible for writing Kohli's "incredible script".
