  • Rohit can surpass Sachin in terms of ODI sixes

Indian skipper Virat Kohli has broken legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar's 17-year record, becoming the fastest-ever to reach 10,000 one-day global runs.

Windies could have removed Kohli for 44 but captain Jason Holder dropped a chance off the bowling of McCoy running towards the long-off boundary.

"If I were you, I would visit the bookstore and pick up the Oxford dictionary", Shastri had said after a Kohli century guided India to victory over South Africa in February.

Centurion Hope said his aim was to just put bat to ball in the last delivery after the final-ball boundary helped West Indies steal a draw from India in the second ODI here Wednesday.

The milestones continued to tumble as Kohli also became the quickest to reach 4,000 runs on home soil in ODIs.

Speaking about batting with Hetmyer, he said, "It's pretty different with him, he likes to keep the scoreboard ticking".


Kohli´s fresh heroics came at the back of his 140 in India´s opening win on Sunday.

Rayudu took stock along with Kohli after India lost their openers for 40 as the batting duo rebuilt the innings and counter-attack.

He made the touring side pay by hitting 13 fours and four sixes in his 129-ball knock. The next year in 2017, Kohli maintained an average of 76.84 in 26 innings to score 1460 runs.

India squad for last three Windies ODIs: Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Rishabh Pant, MS Dhoni (wicketkeeper), Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh Yadav, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey.

"Really good game of cricket played by both teams". Full house and credit to the West Indies team as well, they showed great heart.

The third match is slated for Saturday in Pune. As many as four WI batsmen struck half-centuries and with a brilliant 63 off 45 balls from Daren Sammy, the visitors won the match with two wickets remaining.
