India Beats Bangladesh in World Cup 2023 as Virat Kohli Hits 48th Century

Virat Kohli continued his stellar form in the 2023 World Cup with his 48th ODI century, leading India to a comfortable victory over Bangladesh by 7 wickets. Kohli’s unbeaten 122 off 112 balls was the cornerstone of India’s chase, as they reached the target of 257 with more than 10 overs to spare.

Bangladesh’s batting innings:

Bangladesh got off to a solid start, thanks to a 93-run opening partnership between Litton Das and Tanzid Hasan. However, they suffered a mid-innings slump, losing four wickets for 36 runs. Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah Riyadh steadied the innings with useful contributions, but Bangladesh could only manage 256 for eight in their allotted 50 overs.

India’s batting innings:

India started their chase cautiously, but Kohli soon took charge. He played some sublime shots all over the ground, and reached his century in just 105 balls. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan also chipped in with useful contributions, as India cruised to victory.


India’s victory against Bangladesh was a dominant one, and it takes them to the top of the World Cup points table. Kohli’s century was the highlight of the match, and he is now just one century away from equalling Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 ODI centuries.
