India's Virat Kohli joins elite club of 10,000-plus ODI run-scorers

The 29-year-old is the 13th batsman to reach the milestone and the fifth Indian.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli added one more feather to his illustrious cap which he is going to remember for a long time as he became the fastest in ODI cricket to reach the 10,000-run mark.

Seventeen summers ago, Tendulkar had ventured into what was then an unchartered territory, during a match against Australia.

Veteran India spinner Harbhajan Singh was all praise for Virat Kohli after the latter struck another century in the ongoing second ODI against Windies.

And with his latest century, Kohli achieved yet another milestone.

The game has perhaps never seen a cricketer as consistent as Kohli.

Having an enviable record at the Dr YSR ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium with scores of 118, 117, 99 and 65, Kohli began his latest innings with a boundary through the off-side.

In awe of Virat Kohli's batting prowess, Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal on Tuesday lavished praise on the India captain, stating that his consistency borders on not being human. He is probably the number one in all three formats. He achieved the feat in 10 years and 67 days from his ODI debut.

Following up on his 140 in the opening match in Guwahati, Kohli remained unbeaten on 157 for his 37th ODI hundred and took his side to 6-321 in their 50 overs, after the hosts won the toss and opted to bat.

The other four Indians in the list are Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid and MS Dhoni.
