Virat Surpasses Sachin to Become Fastest to Score 10,000 ODI Runs

Big names looking to make most out of Deodhar Trophy

Indian skipper Virat Kohli became the fifth Indian batsman to score 10,000 ODI runs when he went on to score an unbeaten 157 against the Windies in the second One-day worldwide at Visakhapatnam.

Earlier Kohli became the quickest batsman to reach 10,000 ODI runs on his way to his second successive century and help India amass 321-6 after electing to bat first.

India lead the 5-match series 1-0.

Young wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant along with left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed have retained their spot in the team.

Hope and Shimron Hetmyer (94), the latter off the back of a century last time out, had steered Windies to 221-3 in the 32nd over and although India's attack dragged the game back - the tourists required only 66 with 12 overs remaining - Hope thumped Umesh's last delivery through point to ensure the spoils were shared.

In 164 One Day Internationals, Bravo scored 2,968 runs at an average of 25.36.

Though he was eventually dismissed for 140, Kohli also equalled another record set by Tendulkar - scoring more than 2,000 worldwide runs in a calendar year for India for a record fifth time.

The October 29 day-night match was originally allotted to Wankhede Stadium managed by the Mumbai Cricket Association, but was later shifted to Brabourne Stadium, as the city cricket body cited financial constraints in hosting the game. He also mentioned that they need to be more consistent as a team. Kohli will be playing the full ODI series after having played two Test matches as per the 15-member squad announced by the BCCI on Thursday.

"Personally, I'm pretty proud of my innings and my milestone", Kohli said after the match.

Kohli´s fresh heroics came at the back of his 140 in India´s opening win on Sunday.

Kohli, who will turn 30 next month, was dropped on 44 by West Indies captain Jason Holder off debutant seamer Obed McCoy.

He put on 139 runs for the third wicket with Ambati Rayudu, who made 73.

Bangladesh, England, New Zealand and Zimbabwe are yet to have a player reach the 10,000-run mark in this format.

"However, I must accept that for me to preserve my longevity as a professional cricketer, I must do as others before have done, leave the global arena for the next generation of players". On a flat deck in Guwahati, Indian bowlers did not fare well but the top order took the game away from their rivals in style.
