Sunday's World Cup match between India and South Africa was no less than a treat for cricket fans. Virat Kohli made a billion people proud by scoring a century to equal Sachin Tendulkar's record of 49 ODI centuries and guiding India to their eighth consecutive win at the ongoing World Cup tournament. What made the occasion even more special was that Kohli achieved the feat at Kolkata's iconic Eden Gardens on his 35th birthday. In no time, the country began celebrating the achievement with posts and videos on social media. Bollywood actor Kartik Aaryan was left no behind. He posted a picture straight from a bakery, featuring how he celebrated Virat Kohli's century. In the photo, the actor was seen holding what seemed to be a red velvet cake. His caption confirmed that he was at the German Bakery in Pune. Kartik wrote, “Virat ki century ho to cheating to banti hai. [When Virat scores a century, Cheating is allowed.]”
