In a video, Virat Kohli scores a century that ties a record, helping India defeat South Africa in the Cricket World Cup.

Virat Kohli celebrated his birthday in a grand manner by scoring a century that tied the record for most centuries in one-day internationals, as India dominated South Africa with a 243-run victory at the Cricket World Cup. Kohli’s unbeaten 101 runs from 121 balls matched the record of 49 centuries set by fellow Indian player Sachin Tendulkar. His impressive performance helped India achieve a total score of 326 for five in 50 overs, while South Africa struggled and were all out for only 83 runs in 27.1 overs at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. This win secures India’s spot as the top team in their group, having won all eight of their matches so far.
