Vizag ODI tied after Virat Kohli becomes fastest to 10,000 runs

Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma during the first ODI in Guwahati

Run-machine Virat Kohli sprinted to fastest 10,000 ODI runs but West Indies stole a tie from India with Shai Hope's gutsy hundred in an exhilarating second One-Day International here on Wednesday.

While he acknowledged the fans' applause by raising his bat after reaching the 10k landmark, the crowd was on its feet again when Kohli creamed Marlon Samuels to the cover boundary to bring up his century, his 37th in this format. Sachin Tendulkar, who previously held the record, achieved the feat in 259 innings. The 29-year old became the fastest to complete 10,0000 runs in ODI cricket. Kohli remained not out on 157.

So, even though pleased the Windies had scaled the rare heights of a score in excess of 300, Holder said it was important they bettered that performance, especially since India's batting line-up knew no boundaries.

In the ongoing clash against Windies, Kohli slammed his 37th ODI Century to take India's total to 305 at the loss of five wickets in 48 overs. What makes Kohli's record so impressive is that he has just taken 205 innings to cross the 10,000 run mark. The Indian captain thus became the 13th cricketer in the history of the game to reach 10,000 runs in the 50-over cricket.

Virat Kohli, however, was in a different league altogether, winning the race against Sachin by as many as 54 innings.




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.

Left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav was the most successful bowler for India with 3-67. Making centuries, breaking records, giving the bowlers of other teams a run for their money seems to be his daily schedule now.

Speaking about batting with Hetmyer, he said, "It's pretty different with him, he likes to keep the scoreboard ticking".

He also got past 1,000 ODI runs in just 11 matches this year.

The third ODI will be played at Pune on Saturday.
