As he completed his second run, Kohli celebrated with a leap and a punch in the air, before taking off his helmet, raising his arms and bowing towards the stands where Tendulkar stood applauding the achievement.
In the semi-final, he came into bat in the ninth over of India’s innings, with the score on 71 for 1, and had a 93-run stand with Shubman Gill and a century partnership with Shreyas Iyer. Kohli brought up his half-century off 59 balls and then scored his next 50 runs off 53 deliveries, after seeming to suffer cramps while in his 90s.
