Overtaking Jayasuriya, Virat Kohli is currently the fourth-highest run scorer in ODIs.

Virat Kohli, an Indian batsman, is now the fourth-highest run scorer in One-Day Internationals.
India defeated New Zealand by four wickets in the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup in Dharamsala thanks to Kohli’s 95.
In the process, the Indian player passed Sanath Jayasuriya of Sri Lanka in terms of ODI runs.
In order to tie Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 ODI tons, Kohli needed to score five more runs.

Observing the match recap
After choosing to field, the Indian seamers had a good time in the first Powerplay for their country.
Rachin Ravindra and Daryl Mitchell led New Zealand from 19/2 to 178/2 before collapsing.
India held New Zealand to a total of 273/10 as Mohammed Shami took a wicket.
After a 71-run opening stand, India lost wickets at regular intervals. But they won thanks to Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja.

It’s Kohli’s 69th ODI fifty.
After India lost Rohit, who had opened the game alongside Shubman Gill for 71 runs, Kohli entered the game.
Kohli constructed the knock in his own unique way. He drew out sporadic boundaries while continuously rotating the stroke.

After Tendulkar (49), the Indian hitter has the second-most ODI tons with 48.
No other player has scored more than 31 hundreds in ODIs.

Mitchell continued to play aggressively, slamming the Indian bowlers with contempt as New Zealand reached 200 in 36.1 overs, seemingly unaffected by Ravindra’s wicket.

When Kuldeep had New skipper Tom Latham LBW with an incorrect one, he finally experienced success after being under pressure for the first time in the competition.
