Kohli’s century against Pakistan broke or equalled a flurry of batting records held by former Indian captains.
Virat Kohli became the first Indian to score a century against Pakistan in a World Cup match. He broke Sachin Tendulkar’s, who scored 98 off 75 balls against the Pakistan in the 2003 World Cup at Centurion on March 1.
Kohli also became the first Indian to score a World Cup century in Australia. Mohammed Azharuddin’s 93 versus Australia in Brisbane on March 1, 1992 was the previous best. Kohli’s second World Cup century – his first was against Bangladesh in Dhaka in 2011 – was his 22nd ODI ton, a number achieved by Sourav Ganguly.
