Virat Kohli’s latest ton against South Africa was called a ‘selfish’ one by former Pakistan captain Mohammed Hafeez

Virat Kohli has literally owned the ODI Cricket World Cup 2023. In eight matches so far he has scored four half-centuries and two centuries. Virat Kohli’s latest ton came against South Africa, which saw him go level with the great Sachin Tendulkar in scoring 49 ODI centuries. However, former Pakistan batter Mohammed Hafeez made strange remark after the ton. “I saw sense of selfishness in Virat Kohli’s batting and this happened for the third time in this World Cup. In the 49th over, he was looking to take a single to reach his own hundred and he didn’t put the team first,” he said on Top Cricket Analysis show.

The analysis did not go down with several former cricketers like Venkatesh Prasad and Michael Vaughan.

Mohammed Hafeez again took an indirect jibe at India’s star batter Virat Kohli but England’s former cricketer Michael Vaughan came in Kohli’s defence with a hilarious reply.

During England’s clash against Netherlands at the ongoing World Cup on Wednesday at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Ben Stokes struck a crucial ton to power the Three Lions to a score of 339. His 108 in 84 balls set the tone of the game which allowed England to secure their second victory in the tournament.

While commending Stokes for producing an exceptional performance under pressure while also taking an indirect jibe at Kohli calling his ton in Kolkata against South Africa a “selfish approach” Hafeez posted on X, “Saviour of the ship @benstokes38 Good under pressure anchoring the innings where required with aggressive intent to get Maximum runs for the team to win at the end. Sheer example to differentiate Selfish vs Selfless approach.”

Vaughan responded to Hafeez’s comments claiming that Hafeez’s constant jibes at Kohli come from the fact that the Indian batter bowled him during a match between India and Pakistan in 2012.

Virat’s knock against South Africa was quite special as he created history on his 35th birthday by scoring his 49th ODI century, equalling Sachin Tendulkar’s record of most ODI tons, and Ravindra Jadeja’s five-wicket haul, a rampant India ran riot at the Eden Gardens, decimating South Africa by a whopping 243 runs in the battle of one and two in the points table on Sunday.

This marked India’s eighth win in as many matches maintaining their unbeaten streak in the tournament so far. The Men in Blue will now face the Netherlands in the final group-stage game on Sunday.
