Virat Kohli Races Past Sachin Tendulkar To Reach 10,000 Runs Milestone

In Cricket, India have set a target of 322 runs for the West Indies in the second ODI of the 5-match series at Visakhapatnam on Wednesday. "I thought facing one delivery could have helped Bangladesh get 5-10 extra runs in that game". The knock came off just 129 balls and was studded with 13 fours and 4 sixes.

"If I were you, I would visit the bookstore and pick up the Oxford dictionary", Shastri had said after a Kohli century guided India to victory over South Africa in February.

The 29-year old stylish right-hander now is the fifth Indian cricketer and the 13th in all of the global cricket to have scored 10,000 ODI runs. Kohli, en route to this terrific milestone, surpassed the legendary Sachin Tendulkar who earlier had held this record. India soon found itself in further trouble when Ashley Nurse accounted for Shikhar Dhawan to leave the hosts reeling at 40 for 2.

Kohli broke the record of compatriot and batting great Sachin Tendulkar, who had reached the milestone in 259 innings.

A single off spin bowler Ashley Nurse was all that was needed for Kohli to etch his name in the record books after he had chose to bat first following a 140 in the first ODI.

Without any doubt, Virat Kohli has been the most dominant batsman in recent times where One-day Internationals (ODIs) are concerned. Kohli also became the fourth Indian and 13th overall to score 10,000 runs in ODI cricket.
