Virat Kohli become fastest batsman to 10,000 ODI runs

India vs West Indies 2nd ODI LIVE: India 321/6 in 50 overs, Kohli 157

Virat Kohli surpassed fellow Indian batting great Sachin Tendulkar as the fastest to 10,000 one-day global runs, but West Indies showed some character to snatch a thrilling tie in Visakhapatnam.

In the first match against the Caribbean side, Kohli notched up his 36th ODI hundred as he stroked his way to a breezy 140, helping the home team take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

Centurion Hope said his aim was to just put bat to ball in the last delivery after the final-ball boundary helped West Indies steal a draw from India in the second ODI here Wednesday. Once Pant and Dhoni fell cheaply, Kohli stepped up with his attacking game and scored a magnificent 157 not out from 129 balls to take the team total to 321/6.

Hope, who registered his second ODI ton, kept chipping away despite some tight bowling by the Indian pacemen and Holder´s run out.

Kohli went past the great Sachin Tendulkar, who got to 10,000 ODI runs in 259 innings, by getting to the landmark in merely 205 knocks. "Handsome partnership between both those guys but the way two teams played it was a fair result", Indian captain Virat Kohli said after the match.

Save the one dropped catch by West Indies skipper Jason Holder who ran backwards from mid-off, Kohli looked untroubled throughout and seemed to be satisfied with the way his partner at the other end, Rayudu, was batting. The spinner then bowled seasoned Marlon Samuels (13) to leave the visitors in a spot of bother at 78 for three in 12 overs.

He has also notched up 1,000 ODI runs in just 11 matches this year.

Here is how the cricketing world ushered praise for the Indian captain.

Blessed with boundless energy, safe hands and an astute cricketing brain, he became one of the game's most recognisable figures-a fact that he exploited to launch a second career as an entertainer. Both the bowlers were rested from the Test squad as well as the first two matches after they featured in the Asia Cup winning squad.
