  • Kohli smashes Tendulkar's record in reaching 10 000 ODI runs

A record-shattering Virat Kohli became the quickest to reach 10,000 ODI runs on his way to slamming yet another century as India notched up a competitive 321 for six in the second match against the West Indies here Wednesday.

Kohli reached the feat in just his 205th innings while Tendulkar reached the milestone in his 259th innings. He broke Sachin Tendulkar's record to become the fastest man to achieve this record. He bettered the record set by Sachin Tendulkar by 54 innings. Former South Africa skipper AB de Villiers took 91 innings to reach 4000 ODI runs. Looking at the way Kohli has accumulated the runs, it is only a matter of time before Tendulkar's all-time record is broken.

"I am at a loss of words to describe Virat Kohli's performance". India were at a hard position in Guwahati, but Kohli led the team out of troubled waters.

The 29-year-old, who is ranked No.1 on the ICC batting charts, is inarguably the best batsman in the 50-over format now in the world.


Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli who had led entire cricket world on the storm by his rich skills with the bat on numerous occasions has managed to influence many. The actress took to social media and shared the moment from today's cricket match with all "heart" emoticons. He is probably the number one in all three formats. The match will commence at 1:30 pm (IST), where Windies will be eying to level the series.

At 40 for two in the ninth over, Rayudu joined his skipper and the two played fluently to keep the run rate healthy.

Besides Kohli and Dhoni, prominent Indian players including Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly have also made it to the list with their power-packed performances.
