Virat Kohli becomes fastest batsman to reach 10000 ODI runs

MS Dhoni

The game has perhaps never seen a cricketer as consistent as Kohli. 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.

Check out our slideshow to find out who are the 11 other batsmen to have scored 10,000-plus runs in the 50-overs format - in order of how many matches it took for them to reach the milestone.

On Wednesday, just a couple of days after scoring 140 in the first ODI, he scored 157 not out against Windies. He achieved the feat in 205 innings.

The crucial single run came against spinner Ashley Nurse.

Kohli and Ambati Rayudu, who made 73, added 139 for the third wicket after the hosts had lost openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan early. He broke Sachin Tendulkar's record to become the fastest man to achieve this record.

Without any doubt, Virat Kohli has been the most dominant batsman in recent times where One-day Internationals (ODIs) are concerned.

The record now stands in the name of the iconic Sachin Tendulkar, who took 259 innings to get there, while Kohli has so far played 204 innings. Kohli also became the fourth Indian and 13th overall to score 10,000 runs in ODI cricket. However, should he continue at his current pace, Kohli - still only 29 - will surely surpass that number before the end of his career.
