Indian captain Virat Kohli’s ardent celebrations on the cricket field are well recorded, and against Pakistan in the ICC World Cup game in Manchester he was seen doing the same. Kohli had a lot of chances to try his full range of celebrations as Pakistan was under pressure and India recorded an 89-run win.
The day after the win the Indian skipper posted a picture of himself doing the same celebration as he did against Pakistan when he was a small kid in the 90's.
The win against Pakistan will be special for Kohli as he became The fastest batsman to score 11,000 runs in ODI cricket. He surpassed Sachin Tendulkar's record and became the fastest to 11,000 ODI runs. Tendulkar took 276 innings to reach the landmark while Kohli reached the mark in only 222 ODI innings. He is also the only third Indian after Tendulkar and Ganguly to do so. He is also only the ninth cricketer in the world to reach the mark.
Kohli also completed 1000 runs in ODIs in England. His fifty was 51st in ODI cricket. It was also his fourth half-century against Pakistan and 3rd in a World Cup.
Kohli however, could have added to his score of 77 had he not walked and rather reviewed an appeal by Mohammad Amir when the score was at 336/5 because replays showed he his bat didn't touch the ball as told by umpire.
Kohli and his boys will face Afghanistan on Saturday (June 22).
