Virat Kohli just created history in the semi final match of the cricket World Cup between India and New Zealand, by becoming the first batsman in the history of cricket to score fifty ODI centuries. He broke the previous record of 49, which was held by Sachin Tendulkar.

The century also took his total tally across all three formats to 80 centuries. Several celebrities soon took to social media to share their excitement, as well as congratulate the cricketer on his record breaking feat. SS Rajamouli took to social media, and wrote:
