New Delhi/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has congratulated Indian sporting icon Virat Kohli for scoring his 50th ODI century in the first semi-final of the ICC World Cup 2023 at Wankhede Stadium here on Wednesday.

PM Modi posted: "Today, Virat Kohli not only scored his 50th ODI century but also exemplified the spirit of excellence and perseverance that defines the best sportsmanship. This remarkable achievement is a testimony to his enduring dedication and extraordinary talent. I heartily congratulate them. May he continue to set a benchmark for the coming generations."

Virat Kohli scored a heroic and memorable hundred to shatter cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar's record to reach the 50th ton of his 50-over career during the ongoing World Cup semi-final clash against New Zealand in Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium. Sachin Tendulkar was present in the stadium at the historic moment.
