  • Kohli smashes Tendulkar's record in reaching 10 000 ODI runs

Kohli reached the milestone in his 205th ODI innings, 54 innings quicker than Tendulkar.

The previous record was held by Indian batting great Sachin Tendulkar. The Indian captain has bettered the record by a big margin of 54 innings. At the time of this writing the run machine hit his 37th hundred and was playing on 105.

"It just tells me that if you stay focussed on the process and stay focussed on the right things then these things become irrelevant after a while", Kohli said after the second one-day worldwide against the Windies. With this, Kohli also becomes the fourth Indian and thirteenth batsman to globally achieve the milestone.

"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.

Kohli also scaled another magnificent record as he becomes the fastest batsman in terms of career-span to reach the 10,000- club. He is probably the number one in all three formats. The left-handed batsman is close to 5,000 ODI runs mark. India lost their two openers rather quickly, but in walked Kohli and nearly as if everything was bound to fall into place, he took charge of proceedings.

Ahead of the Vizag ODI, Kohli needed just 81 runs to break the master-blaster's record of 10000 runs in 259 innings.

However, Shai Hope (123no) smashed the final ball of the match, bowled by Umesh Yadav, for four to take Windies on to 321-7 in the second game of the five-match series, India having won Sunday's opener by eight wickets. He has scored 1,684 runs, while the next in line - Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Sourav Ganguly - have scored 1,573, 1,348 and 1,142 respectively.
