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

Virat Kohli scored a fine century during the 2nd ODI cricket match against West Indies in Visakhapatnam on Wednesday. He bettered the record set by Sachin Tendulkar by 54 innings. And shortly after Rayudu's departure, Kohli achieved the milestone of completing 10,000 runs in ODI cricket.

"I am at a loss of words to describe Virat Kohli's performance". The Indian captain also holds the record for the fastest to 8000 and 9000 ODI runs. "So when you are in that same position yourself, you should have that same hunger and never take things for granted, never take it easy at any stage", said the Indian skipper. Taking that into account, it is clear that Tendulkar exceeds the average strike rate of his era by a much higher margin than Kohli, though Kohli remains better in terms of the ratio of averages. There's no doubt now that Kohli is on par with Sachin Tendulkar in ODI cricket. He has now become the fastest cricketer to score 10000 runs in ODIs. He is now the world's No.1 batsman in both the Test and one-day formats. The 29-year old is already the No.11 batsman in the world in Tests and ODIs apart from being a part of a World Cup-winning team.




With his unbeatable performances, Kohli has won several accolades including the Arjuna award, ICC World Cricketer of the year and multiple BCCI worldwide Cricketer of the Year awards. He has scored 1,684 runs, while the next in line - Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly - have scored 1,573, 1,348 and 1,142 respectively.

However, Shai Hope (123no) smashed the final ball of the match, bowled by Umesh Yadav, for four to take Windies on to 321-7 in the second game of the five-match series, India having won Sunday's opener by eight wickets.
