A man of many firsts, Virat Kohli broke and created numerous records during India’s 2023 ICC World Cup semi-final match against New Zealand, which is being played in Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium.

The most notable record broken by Virat Kohli, certainly, is that of Sachin Tendulkar’s 49 ODI centuries. He became the first player in cricket’s history to score 50 centuries in this format of the game.

Most ODI centuries:

  • 1. Virat Kohli – 50

  • 2. Sachin Tendulkar – 49

  • 3. Rohit Sharma – 31

  • 4. Ricky Ponting – 30

  • 5. Sanath Jayasuriya – 28

But besides this achievement, he also scripted history in numerous other aspects. Let us have a look at all of them:

Kohli became the first player in history to score north of 700 runs in a single edition of the ODI World Cup. Here as well, Kohli broke Sachin Tendulkar’s record – that of the Master Blaster’s 673-run tally at the 2003 World Cup.

Most runs in a single ODI World Cup edition:
