CWC 2023, India vs New Zealand: Anushka Sharma calls Virat Kohli's "god's child".

The entire country cannot stop celebrating as Team India has made their entry into the final of the ongoing Cricket World Cup 2023. The Rohit Sharma-led side defeated New Zealand by 70 runs in the first semi-final at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on Wednesday. Virat Kohli scripted history on the all-important day as he played a knock of 117 runs off 113 balls. With this, Kohli broke the record of his "hero" Sachin Tendulkar and he now has the most number of ODI centuries (50).

Virat Kohli's wife Anushka Sharma was also in attendance for the match, and she was spotted blowing kisses from the stands as Virat Kohli completed his 50th ODI century. 

Anushka also praised her husband, and she referred to him as "god's child." 

"God is the best scriptwriter. Utterly grateful to him for blessing me with your love, and to watch you grow from strength to strength and achieve all that you have and will, being honest to yourself and to the sport always. You are truly God's child," Anushka Sharma wrote on Instagram Story.

After India's innings came to an end, Virat Kohli gave an interview to the official broadcaster, in which he talked about breaking the record of Sachin Tendulkar, and how it felt to have Anushka Sharma in attendance for the match.

“As I said stuff of dreams. Anushka was sitting right there, Sachin paaji was here too. Difficult to explain this. If I could paint a perfect picture I would want this to be the picture. My life partner, the person I love the most is sitting there, my hero is sitting there and I was able to get the 50th in front of all of them and all these stands in Wankhede as well, such a history venue so it was amazing," Kohli told Star Sports.

“Most important thing is to make my team win and whatever it takes to do that I am ready to do that. Whether running singles and doubles, hitting boundaries… whatever the team wants me to do. I have been given a role this tournament and I have been trying to play that to the best of my abilities – try to dig deep and bat long so the guys around me can play around me and have that confidence in the later overs where I can dominate with the bat as well,” he added.

Talking about the match, batting first, Team India posted 397/4, owing to knocks of 117 and 105, respectively, by Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer. 

Mohammed Shami then registered the best ODI bowling figures by an Indian bowler as he returned with a spell of 7-57, and as a result, New Zealand were bowled out for 327, losing the match by 70 runs. 

Daryl Mitchell's knock of 134 runs went in vain.
