Virat Kohli | Harbhajan Singh | India vs Windies | Second ODI

Virat Kohli'blessed to have crossed 10,000 runs in ODI cricket

Earlier in the day, Kohli won the toss and elected to bat first.

Virat Kohli on Wednesday became the fastest-ever batsmen to reach 10,000 One-day International (ODI) runs, making history in his 205th innings against West Indies. The duo added 143 after their side had been reduced to 3-78.

The right-handed went past the 81 runs he needed, eventually scoring 157 not out against West Indies.

Hope managed to hit his 10th four just beyond the reach of the fielder patrolling the deep third man boundary to take his side to 7-321 and leave the match tied.

For India, left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav has replaced Khaleel Ahmed in the starting eleven, with Oshane Thomas giving way to debutant Obed Mccoy for the visitors.India is now leading the series, 1-nil.

Besides Kohli and Tendulkar (18,426), the other Indian batters to achieve the feat are former skippers Sourav Ganguly (11,363), Rahul Dravid (10,889) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who reached the milestone not very long ago. Kohli has become the fifth Indian to reach the mark in ODIs. However, Kohli and Ambati Rayudu stitched together a partnership of 139 runs to bail India out of trouble.

If Rohit achieves that, he will be the only opener so far to have scored 3,000 ODI runs since the 2015 World Cup as the next best openers are England's Jason Roy (2,532 runs), South Africa's Quinton de Kock (2,442 runs), Shikhar Dhawan (2,320 runs) and Australian David Warner (2,296 runs).
