Kohli hit a half century against the Dutch to move past South Africa’s Quinton de Kock who managed 591 runs in nine innings.

After his 56-ball 51, Kohli had 594 runs in the tournament at an average of 99. He hit five half-centuries and two hundreds. Kohli, however, fell short of becoming the third Indian batter to hit 600 runs in the World Cup.

Rohit Sharma, in 2019, and Sachin Tendulkar, in 2003, are only Indian batters to cross the 600-run mark.

Kohli, as well as de Kock, will have one more innings to add to their run tally.
