Team India are fairing pretty well in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 after winning three of their 4 games while sharing a point with New Zealand after the match gets abandoned due to rain. On Sunday, India extended their unbeatable win record in World Cups against Pakistan (7-0) after thrashing them by 89 runs (DLS).
Indian captain Virat Kohli’s passionate celebrations on the cricket field are well documented, and against Pakistan in the ICC World Cup game at Old Trafford in Manchester he was his usual self.
After the emphatic win, Indian skipper Virat Kohli tweeted a picture of himself doing the same celebration as he did against Pakistan when he was a small kid. He captioned, “Doing it since the early 90s.”

During the match Kohli became the fastest batsman to score 11,000 runs in ODI cricket when he reached 57-run mark. He broke Sachin Tendulkar’s record and became the fastest to 11,000 ODI runs. Tendulkar needed 276 innings to reach the landmark while Kohli completed it in only 222 ODI innings. He is only the third Indian after Tendulkar and Ganguly to do so, and also only the ninth cricketer in the world to reach 11,000 ODI runs.
Team India will next face Afghanistan in their ICC World Cup 2019 tie on Saturday, June 22 at the Rose Bowl, Southampton. India, after playing four matches, are sitting at the third place on the points table with 7 points.
