Virat Kohli avoids singles in ODI century chase, according to KL Rahul

<p>By striking the decisive six against Bangladesh with the help of KL Rahul at the other end and turning down easy singles, Virat Kohli reached his 48th ODI century.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-246417″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/theindiaprint.com-virat-kohli-avoids-singles-in-odi-century-chase-according-to-kl-rahul-download-202.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com virat kohli avoids singles in odi century chase according to kl rahul download 202″ width=”1008″ height=”662″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/theindiaprint.com-virat-kohli-avoids-singles-in-odi-century-chase-according-to-kl-rahul-download-202.jpg 277w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/10/theindiaprint.com-virat-kohli-avoids-singles-in-odi-century-chase-according-to-kl-rahul-download-202-150×99.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1008px) 100vw, 1008px” title=”Virat Kohli avoids singles in ODI century chase, according to KL Rahul 6″></p>
<p>During the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup in India in 2023, Kohli may still surpass Sachin’s all-time record of 49 tons thanks to his 48th ton in the format.</p>
<p>The 34-year-old’s hundred is his third in an ICC Cricket World Cup and his 48th in ODIs, although it seemed to everyone that he would fall 19 runs short of the century when India needed 19 runs to win and Kohli himself was still 19 short.</p>
<p>But he was brilliantly assisted by Rahul at the other end, who continued the strike-through to the conclusion of the innings and helped him attain his goal by hitting a maximum that also ended the game.</p>
<p>Rahul admitted that his intention to not take singles was to allow Kohli to keep strike and increase his chances of getting a century after the game, which India won by seven wickets with 51 balls remaining.</p>
<p>“He was perplexed. He said it wouldn’t seem too great, not to take the single, and that it was still a significant platform for the World Cup. According to ESPNcricinfo, Rahul said to Star Sports, “I don’t want to appear like I am simply trying to attain the milestone.</p>
<p>“But I responded, ‘I mean, it’s not won, but I still believe we’ll win very handily.’ If you can reach the milestone, why not? You have to try. In the end, he really did it. In any case, I wasn’t going to run the singles,” he said.</p>
<p>The Indian superstar beat Sachin Tendulkar’s previous mark by 33 innings as he approached his century and set a new record for the quickest batsman to 26,000 runs in international cricket.</p>
<p>With Kohli’s undefeated 103 against Bangladesh on Thursday, only India skipper Rohit Sharma remains in first place in the Most Runs leaderboard with runs scored in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023.</p>
<p>With their win on Thursday, India and New Zealand are now equal in terms of points. In the tournament’s first four games, both teams are still winless. However, owing to their better net run rate, New Zealand presently tops the leaderboard.</p>
