Virat Kohli breaks Sachin Tendulkar’s record, becomes fastest to 10,000 ODI runs

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Virat Kohli brings up 10000 ODI runs in only his 205th innings
  • Sachin Tendulkar had got to the 10000-run club in 259 innings
  • Kohli is now the 5th Indian to score 10000 runs in ODIs

Virat Kohli became only the fourth batsman to score 10,000 ODI runs for India and in the process, he also broke Sachin Tendulkar’s record to become the fastest to reach the milestone.

Before the start of the second ODI against West Indies in Vizag, Kohli needed 81 to reach the coveted landmark. After his stroke-filled 140 in the first ODI on Sunday, there was little doubt Kohli would get to 10K on Wednesday.

He got off the mark with a boundary off Kemar Roach, who had just dismissed Rohit Sharma cheaply. Thereafter, Kohli went about building his innings like he has done so often over the last decade.
