Renowned batsman Virat Kohli, amidst an extraordinary performance in the Cricket World Cup 2023, has accumulated an impressive 543 runs in eight matches, achieving two centuries. Recently, Kohli reached a significant milestone by matching Sachin Tendulkar’s record for the most centuries in One-Day Internationals, notching his 49th century on his 35th birthday.

The cricketing community, including Tendulkar, flooded social media with tributes to Kohli, expressing admiration for his achievement and anticipating more records in the future.

As India gears up for its final group stage match against the Netherlands, considered a dead rubber, Kohli returned to Bengaluru with the Indian team. Upon arrival, Kohli, accompanied by his wife Anushka Sharma, received a warm welcome at the team hotel from officials.

Virat and Anushka are expecting their second child. News of her pregnancy spread rapidly after a clip showed her cradling her baby bump while walking with the former India captain. For the night out, the actress wore a short flared dress to protect her baby bump. Their first child, Vamika, was born on January 11, 2021.

Known for his on-field tenacity and resilience, Kohli, despite occasional controversies, remains one of the most beloved figures in cricket. Fan interactions, such as pitch invasions for selfies and feet-touching gestures, are common occurrences at Indian venues.

Beyond his on-field prowess, Kohli holds the distinction of being India’s highest-paid athlete, earning $33.9 million primarily from lucrative brand endorsements, according to Sportico’s 2022 list.

Kohli’s cricket journey has witnessed highs and lows, experiencing an extended lean patch since 2021. However, his resilience came to the fore in the 2022 T20 World Cup when he broke the century drought after 1,020 days. Since then, Kohli has sustained his stellar form, reaffirming his status as one of cricket’s premier players.
