Bating against West Indies on Wednesday, India skipper Virat Kohli became the fastest to score 10,000 One-Day International (ODI) runs.
The India cricket captain became only the fourth Indian batsman to score 10,000 ODI runs for the country. In this process, Kohli broke Sachin Tendulkar’s record to become the fastest to reach the milestone.
Before the start of the match against West Indies, India skipper needed 81 to achieve the milestone.
Kohli got off the mark with a boundary off Kemar Roach. The same bowler had just dismissed Rohit Sharma very cheaply. After that, India captain started building his innings like he keeps doing since last decade.
Before Kohli, other India batsmen who have scored over 10,000 runs include Sachin Tendulkar (18426), Sourav Ganguly (11,221) and Rahul Dravid (10,768). MS Dhoni has also scored over 10,000 ODI runs (10123) but only 9949 of those have been scored for India. Dhoni’s other 174 runs came for Asia XI.
