Virat Kohli today became the fastest cricketer to cross the 10,000-run mark in the One Day Internationals (ODIs).
The India captain reached the milestone in just 205 innings 54 innings less than the now second-fastest, Sachin Tendulkar.
Kohli became the 13th cricketer and fifth Indian to achieve the feat during India’s second ODI against the West Indies at Visakhapatnam.
Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid and MS Dhoni are the only other Indian cricketers to have reached this milestone in their careers.
During India’s first ODI against the Windies, Kohli had become the fastest cricketer to score 60 international hundreds.
In the process, he broke Sachin Tendulkar’s record, who had taken 426 innings, whereas Kohli reached the landmark in 386 innings, 40 fewer.
Kohli, who has now scored 36 ODI and 24 Test centuries, is the fifth cricketer to hit 60 international tons.
Though he was eventually dismissed for 140, Kohli also equalled another record set by Tendulkar scoring more than 2,000 international runs in a calendar year for India for a record fifth time.>
