This astonishing achievement also eclipsed the previous record for concurrent viewership in India, which was held by the 2022 FIFA World Cup final.
Lionel Messi's Argentina faced Kylian Mbappe's France in a high-stakes match, and it drew 3.2 crore (32 million) viewers in India through the JioCinema app. However, Kohli and his team's brilliance in Dharamsala surpassed this record by a significant margin.
As the cricketing world continues to marvel at Kohli's outstanding performance and the overwhelming response from fans, the anticipation for the upcoming World Cup matches has reached a fever pitch.

India's next match is against England, who are currently struggling, and fans eagerly await another display of Kohli's cricketing prowess.
The match in Dharamsala will be remembered not only for the cricket played but also for setting new milestones in online sports viewing.
Virat Kohli's masterclass has created an indelible mark on the world of sports, with fans from every corner of the globe tuning in to witness this historic moment in cricketing history.">
