Record-Breaker Virat Kohli’s Stunning 2023 ODI World Cup

Virat Kohli broke records after records in the men’s ODI World Cup 2023. The Indian star batter was absolutely spellbounding.

VK amassed a massive 765 runs in ODI World Cup 2023, which is the highest run scored in a single World Cup edition.

He is the first ever cricketer to have crossed the 700-run mark in a single edition of men’s ODI World Cup.

He broke the previous record of 673 runs, held by veteran Indian player, Sachin Tendulkar, which he scored in WC 2022.

Virat also overtook Indian skipper Rohit Sharma, who was previously at no. 3 on the list. Ro scored 648 runs in WC 2019.

Not only in this season, but he is the highest scorer even if ODI World Cups 2011-2023 are taken into consideration. 

He broke Ricky Ponting’s all-time tally by scoring 1795 runs in just 37 matches.

Virat broke Sachin’s record of most ODI centuries. Kohli scored his 50th century during the semi-final match vs NZ at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.

Kohli is at no. 4 in the list of players with most centuries in a single World Cup edition, equalling Sourav Ganguly, Mark Waugh and Matthew Hayden’s 3 tons.
