Here’s a look at his records

  • Virat Kohli is the fastest batsmen to cross the 10,000-run mark in ODI
  • Kohli was also the fastest player to reach 9,000 runs and he achieved the feat in 194 innings
  • With 36 centuries, Kohli is the second batsman with the highest number of ODI tons after Sachin Tendulkar
  • Kohli has the most number of centuries while chasing. He has scored 22 ODI centuries while Sachin Tendulkar stands second with 17
  • Kohli has scored over 300 runs in a bilateral ODI series on six different occasions
  • Kohli is the only player to have scored over 15,000 runs at an average of over 50 in international cricket
  • Kohli is the first skipper to hit six ODI hundreds in a calendar year
  • Kohli also holds the record of being the only captain to score the most ODI runs in a year. The right-handed batsman scored 1,460 runs in 2017 and surpassed former Australia skipper Ricky Ponting’s 1,424 runs in 2007
  • Kohli holds the record for the most number of ODI tons as Indian captain

The second ODI between India and West Indies ended in a tie at Visakhapatnam on Wednesday. The Indian team leads the five-match series 1-0. Windies came close to their highest successful run-chase after Shimron Hetmyer’s sensational hitting and Shai Hope’s near run-a-ball century. They managed to salvage a tie after a last-ball boundary by Hope. However, the day would be remembered for the series of record that tumbled on that day courtesy Virat Kohli.

Virat Kohli is now the fastest man in the history of ODI cricket to reach 10,000 runs. The Indian skipper reached the landmark on his way to his 37th ODI ton (a 129-ball 157 not out studded with 13 fours and four sixes) in the Vizag ODI against the West Indies. He has reached the 1000-run mark in 205 innings, which is 54 less than ‘Master Blaster’ Sachin Tendulkar who held the record earlier.

Sachin completed 10,000 runs by playing a drive to long-off off Shane Warne’s bowling in the 18th over of Indian innings at Indore on 31 March 2001. The maestro took 259 innings to become the first batsman to reach the 10,000 run mark, after making his debut in 1989 against arch-rival Pakistan.

Kohli is fifth Indian to reach the milestone and join an elite club dominated by Asian players. He joins Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni, Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly among Indians to score 10,000 career runs in ODIs. Ricky Ponting, Jacques Kallis and Brian Lara are the only players from non-Asian sides.

The Indian skipper is also the fastest in terms of time taken to score the runs as he reached the milestone in 10 years and 67 days. Sachin Tendulkar had taken 11 years and 103 days while Rahul Dravid was fastest before Kohli reaching the mark in 10 years and 317 days.
