Virat Kohli is on the verge of clinching his second ICC ODI World Cup trophy, and former Indian cricketer Suresh Raina is firmly supporting the veteran to mark his 51st century in the final of the ICC World Cup 2023.

The highly anticipated final, slated between India and Australia, is scheduled to take place at the Narendra Modi Stadium on November 19. India secured their spot in the final by overcoming New Zealand in the first semi-final, while Australia earned their place by eliminating South Africa in the second knockout.

In the semi-final showdown against New Zealand, Kohli showcased his batting brilliance by achieving his 50th century in the fifty-over format. Raina, recognizing Virat’s exceptional performances throughout the global tournament, expressed confidence in witnessing him reach his 51st century in the final against Australia.

“Virat Kohli is a stalwart player and has consistently delivered in crucial matches. He secured his 50th century in the semi-final, and there’s a strong possibility we’ll see him notch his 51st in the final against Australia. He has a penchant for performing against the Aussies, having played eight ODIs against them. I am confident he will shine in the title match,” remarked Suresh Raina in an interview with RevSportz.

Raina also shared his insights on the outstanding bowling display by Mohammed Shami, praising his excellence in attacking the stumps and delivering unplayable deliveries. He highlighted Shami’s impeccable seam position and strategic approach, particularly when facing left-handed batters, as Shami adopts a round-the-wicket bowling style. Raina credited Rohit Sharma for Shami’s success, commending the captain for providing aggressive field placements to the pace bowler.
