India's Kohli becomes fastest to complete 10000 ODI runs

The 29-year old became the fastest to complete 10,0000 runs in ODI cricket.

Virat Kohli became the fastest man to reach 10,000 one-day global runs on Wednesday with another exhibition of batting for India against West Indies.

Seventeen summers ago, Tendulkar had ventured into what was then an unchartered territory, during a match against Australia.

When batting on 48, Kohli with 1,573 runs also broke Tendulkar's record to score the most runs by an Indian batsman against the West Indies. "I am sure that a lot of cricketers will take inspiration from Kohli in India and across the world as well". Kohli, who is one of the best in modern-day cricket achieved this feat during the second one-dayer against the West Indies in Hyderabad and took just 205 innings to achieve this unique milestone.


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

Some years ago, Sachin Tendulkar, after scoring his 100th global century, said he would love to see an Indian - someone like Kohli or Rohit Sharma - break his records.

Kohli has been in sublime form across formats this year and has scored over 900 runs in ODIs alone. "King Kohli", as he is known in the Indian press, was dropped on 44 by his opposite number Jason Holder off debutant Obed McCoy, after electing to bat first.

The other four Indians in the list are Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid and MS Dhoni.
