Indian batting star Virat Kohli's wife Anushka Sharma couldn't keep her calm as her husband completed a significant landmark of 50 centuries in ODI cricket. The Bollywood actress had a massive smile on her face blew flying kisses to the right-handed batter as he sank to his knees after letting out a roar at the iconic venue on Wednesday.
The incident occurred in the 42nd over of the innings as he helped one to the deep-square leg region and ran hard to complete a double. Thr right-handed batter hammered his 49th hundred in the 2023 World Cup clash against South Africa at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Below is the reaction of Anushka Sharma on Kohli hammering 50 ODI hundreds:
Virat Kohli gets a reprieve from Glenn Phillips but Devon Conway holds on to a catch:
Meanwhile, the 35-year-old was offered a reprieve in the 44th over of the innings as Glenn Phillips dropped one at deep mid-wicket. The former Indian captain rubbed salt into the visitors' wounds a delivery later, thrashing one into the stands.
However, Tim Southee, who had earlier dismissed Rohit Sharma, got the better of Kohli as Devon Conway took a fantastic low catch. The wicket also ended the partnership of 163 with Shreyas Iyer. Nevertheless, the Delhi-born cricketer took India closer as ever to a score of 400.
