Virat Kohli scored his 48th ODI century in a seven-wicket win over Bangladesh in the World Cup

Virat Kohli hit his 48th ODI century to lead India to a seven-wicket victory over Bangladesh in the World Cup on Thursday. Kohli’s brilliant performance included an unbeaten 103 off 97 as India reached 261/3 in just 41.3 overs in reply to Bangladesh’s 256/8 in 50 overs. KL Rahul, who completed an unbeaten 34 on the ticket, supported him.

The 34-year-old reached his century in dramatic fashion; There was a drastic change in strategy as Kohli approached the three-figure mark in Pune. Needing 19 to win and Kohli’s collection total, the batsman chose to hit a boundary to continue.

Match man D gave up some easy singles opportunities to keep hitting. Kohli looked to have lost his chance as some extras were added, but he persevered and was bowled full at the crease by Nasum Ahmed to start the celebrations in Pune.

After the win, Rahul opened talks with Kohli as he approaches his century. The star batsman revealed that Kohli was pragmatic about his ton; The 34-year-old believes he will not be at his best at any stage of the World Cup. “He was really confused. He said: ‘It won’t look good if we don’t win, it’s still a World Cup match. It’s a big stage and I don’t want to look like I’m stepping. But I said, “I won’t win, but we will win anyway, if you can get to this stage, why not?” I said. Must try’. Then he did, and I won’t either! Rahul told Star Sports.

Rahul was also asked about umpire Richard Kettleborough’s somewhat unusual decision not to call the final. At that time, India needed 2 runs to win and Kohli needed 3 runs to reach the ground. However, Rahul decided not to back down from the decision. “It used to come out slowly. It’s hard to answer.”

Kohli is entering an important phase

Kohli is now just one century away from equaling the record of 49 ODIs held by his compatriot Sachin Tendulkar. This marks Kohli’s 78th international century in all formats, but only his third in the World Cup since 2011. With this win, India have eight wins from four matches and overtake New Zealand to second in the points table. operation speed.
