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

Virat Kohli Wednesday became the fastest to score 10,000 runs in One-day Internationals, rewriting, fittingly enough, the iconic Sachin Tendulkar's record and compounding the cricket community's conundrum to find the right superlatives for his phenomenal batting.

And with his latest century, Kohli achieved yet another milestone.

The October 29 day-night match was originally allotted to Wankhede Stadium managed by the Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA), but was later shifted to Brabourne Stadium, as the city cricket body cited financial constraints in hosting the game. Virat Kohli was once again the star with the bat for India, as he went past several milestones in what was a record breaking knock, to bring up his 37th ODI hundred and 61st in worldwide cricket.

Kohli became the fifth Indian and 10th Asian player to reach the landmark. He is probably the number one in all three formats.

Kohli 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.

It is worth mentioning that Kohli and MS Dhoni are the only players in the list still playing global cricket.

Following up on his 140 in the opening match in Guwahati, Kohli remained unbeaten on 157 for his 37th ODI hundred and took his side to 6-321 in their 50 overs, after the hosts won the toss and opted to bat.

Besides Tendulkar and Kohli, Sourav Ganguly, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Rahul Dravid are the other Indian cricketers to cross 10000 runs in the format.
