There is no doubt that great Indian hitter Virat Kohli is among the best in the world. Over the years, the 34-year-old has delivered numerous outstanding performances and reached the height of his profession. Kohli, as one of the most seasoned players on the Indian side, has earned some crucial runs for the country over the years.
Furthermore, the 34-year-old is well-known for his centuries. Kohli has 78 hundreds to his career in 512 games for India across all formats. However, there have been other situations when the top batter came within a whisker of a century but was dismissed in the 90s.
Virat Kohli has been dismissed in the 90s eight times during his career. Six times in one-day internationals and twice in test cricket.
Kohli s brilliance aids India in breaking the curse of New Zealand.
Team India, led by Rohit Sharma, is currently competing in the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023. In the competition, India has yet to lose a game. So far in the competition, the Men in Blue have faced Australia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and New Zealand.
The Indian squad was concerned going into the match against the Black Caps because they had not beaten New Zealand in the ODI World Cup since 2003. Both teams faced up against one other in game 21 of the 2023 World Cup, with New Zealand winning the toss and electing to bat first. Rachin Ravindra and Daryl Mitchell batted brilliantly to help the team score 273 runs in the first innings.
Mohammed Shami took the most wickets for India in the first innings, taking five. Attempting to chase down the objective, ace batter Virat Kohli once again helped India win the game.
Kohli’s 95-run innings in 104 deliveries made history as India defeated New Zealand by four wickets.
