In a historic moment during India’s World Cup match against Afghanistan at Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium, Virat Kohli, the renowned Indian batter, surpassed the legendary Sachin Tendulkar’s combined record of most runs in ODI World Cup and T20I World Cup. Tendulkar’s record stood at 2,278 runs, which included six centuries and fifteen half-centuries. Kohli, however, now holds the new record with 2,311 runs across both formats of the World Cup, having scored two centuries and 22 half-centuries.
India clinched victory against Afghanistan by 8 wickets, thanks to an outstanding performance by Rohit Sharma, who contributed significantly with his remarkable 131-run knock. Kohli played a crucial role, remaining unbeaten on 55 off 56 balls, steering India to their second consecutive win in the World Cup.
