Virat Kohli has made it a habit to break Sachin Tendulkar’s records and he did so on Wednesday in Vizag as he breached the 10,000-run mark in one-day internationals during the second ODI against the Windies. Virat Kohli has become the fastest batsman to score 10,000 one-day international runs. The India captain went past the 81 he needed against West Indies to go to 10,000 ODI runs in 205 innings, beating Tendulkar who reached the mark in 259 innings.
Kohli has become the fifth Indian to reach the mark in ODIs. Kohli’s century against West Indies in the first ODI on Sunday was his 60th international hundred (36 in ODIs and 24 in Tests) and the 386 innings it took him meant he was the fastest to reach that landmark, taking 40 fewer than the previous record-holder Tendulkar. Kohli also broke Tendulkar’s record to become the fastest Indian player to 24 Test centuries with his hundred against West Indies in the first Test in Rajkot at the start of October.
