Star India batter Virat Kohli celebrated his 35th birthday in grand fashion as he scored his 49th ODI hundred against South Africa during Match 37 of the ODI World Cup 2023 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. Kohli played a magnificent innings of 101* (121) helping his side post a massive total of 326/5 in their allotted 50 over.
