Pudhari Online Desk: Gambhir on Virat Kohli: Virat Kohli made a historic 117 runs in the penultimate match against New Zealand. This was King Kohli’s 50th ODI century. He asked for cricket god Sachin Tendulkar. Yes, Vikram has scored the most centuries in ODIs. When Virat Kohli completed his 50th century, Sachin Tendulkar was also present in the spectator gallery of Wankhede Stadium. After completing his century, Kohli first bowed and greeted Tendulkar in the direction where he was sitting.
Kohli (Virat Kohli) is showered with congratulations from all levels. Or its commentator Gautam Gambhir did not ask for it. Gambhir (Gautam Gambhir) has given a surprising response to Kohli’s record-breaking century. Indian or former players have shared posts regarding this on social media platforms. ‘Virat Kohli, congratulations to you on your 50th century. Sachin Tendulkar’s move forward is a great achievement. I am sure his late father would be feeling very proud today. They will be proud to meet you from heaven. The humor on his face is amazing. Virat, you are the greatest player of this generation. (Gautam Gambhir on Virat Kohli)

Had Kohli (Virat Kohli) scored a century in the first ODI against Sri Lanka in 2009, Gambhir would have scored a century in that match. Gambhirla gave away the official Player of the Match book. When Gambhir came to receive the award, Gambhir would have spoken to Kohli and given him the award he had received. Gambhir would have said about this, ‘Kohli has scored his first century in this match. First century is very special for any player. Mala Kohli would have made his first century memorable.

Gambhir (Gautam Gambhir) and Kohli are often seen bickering on social media. In such a situation, every serious issue regarding Kohli would become a topic of discussion. However, in between, there have been many incidents when Gambhir has admired Kohli’s performance. Or Kramane, when he comes to congratulate him for his 50th ODI century, even after that he looks very happy.
Actually, the promise made between Naveen-ul-Haq and Virat Kohli during IPL 2023 would have been kept by Gautam Gambhir. After that, there would have been a spat between Virat and Gambhir and the differences between the two would have increased, which would not have been the same. In the 2013 IPL itself, there would have been an on-field fight between Virat and Gambhir.
