“The first time I met you in the Indian dressing room, you were pranked by other teammates into touching my feet. I couldn’t stop laughing that day. But soon, you touched my heart with your passion and skill. I am so happy that that young boy has grown into a ‘Virat’ player. I couldn’t be happier that an Indian broke my record. And to do it on the biggest stage – in the World Cup Semi-final – and at my home ground is the icing on the cake,” Tendulkar posted on micro-blogging site ‘X’.

Kohli and Shreyas Iyer’s centuries helped India post 397 on the board, and in reply, New Zealand were 30/1 in 5.4 overs. Kohli had come into bat at number three after the dismissal of Rohit Sharma in the ninth over. He forged a 93-run stand with Shubman Gill, and followed it up with a 163-run partnership with fellow centurion Shreyas Iyer.
