Virat Kohli went past Sachin Tendulkar to script world record and achieved multiple feats with a fifty vs PAK

IND vs PAK: On Sunday, the world saw one of the best innings that could ever have been played in a tricky chase in the history of the game, and it was none other than the real “Chase Master” who did it once again for India. Virat Kohli pulled off an incredible win for the Men in Blue against Pakistan at the MCG.

Chasing the target of 160 runs, when India lost four wickets for just 31 runs, not many would have thought that India could even come close to the target. But the fifth wicket partnership between Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya (40 off 37) helped India come close.

Still, it didn’t look that easy as India required 48 runs in 18 balls. But Virat showed his power-hitting ability that came at the right time and India won the game on the very last ball of the match.

IND vs PAK: Virat Kohli breaks massive record of Sachin Tendulkar

Virat remained unbeaten till the very end and made 82* off 53 balls, including six fours and four maximums, to help India win the game. He almost single-handedly won the game for India and was awarded “Man of the Match” for his half-century. With this knock, he also surpassed the “Master Blaster” Sachin Tendulkar and created a massive record.

Notably, before this innings, Virat and Sachin had both had 23 fifty-plus scores in the history of the ICC white-ball tournament and Virat’s half-century on Sunday has helped him go past Sachin and now he is the top batter with the most 50+ scores in the history of the ICC tournaments.

On the other hand, Kohli also went past the Indian skipper, Rohit Sharma (3741 runs in 143 T20Is) and has become the leading run getter in T20 internationals. Virat Kohli has now scored 3794 runs in 110 games. Apart from this, Kohli has also become the leading run-getter in the T20 World Cup as an Indian and third highest overall. Virat has 927 runs in 20 innings and is behind Chris Gayle (935) and Mahela Jayawardene (1016).
