Kohli fastest to reach 10,000 runs ODI landmark

Mumbai :Indian skipper Virat Kohli became the fastest batsman to reach 10,000 runs in ODI cricket on Wednesday when he scored 81 runs against the West Indies during the 2nd ODI at Vishakapatnam.

Kohli has accumulated 10000 runs in just 205 innings with an average of 58.69 which is the highest in ODI cricket amongst batsman who have played at least 50 matches.

Kohli has been in excellent form for India in recent times especially during the away tour against England where he emerged as one of the highest run-getters. He has retained the same form during the ODI series against West Indies despite being rested for the Asia Cup.

The 29-year-old cricketer will be looking to ensure more of the same in the upcoming clashes against the West Indies and the tour of Australia thereafter.
