Virat Kohli falls short of Sachin Tendulkar’s century

On Sunday, Virat Kohli scored 95 to lead India to a four-wicket victory against New Zealand, their fifth win in five World Cup matches, however the superstar batsman fell just short of Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 one-day international century. Fast bowler Mohammed Shami took 5-54 to help India bowl out New Zealand for 273, a score India beat with 12 balls to spare at Dharamsala. The Kiwis, who rode Daryl Mitchell’s 130 to record 273, suffered their first loss in five matches and are now second in the 10-team standings, trailing leaders India.

An in-form Kohli, who made 103 not out in the last win over Bangladesh, put on crucial partnerships, including a 78-run stand with Ravindra Jadeja, who hit the winning run.
