Indian Skipper, Virat Kohli becomes the fastest batsman to reach 10,000 runs in one-day internationals as he scored a second consecutive century against West Indies on Wednesday, breaking Sachin Tendulkar’s record and compounding the cricket community's conundrum to find the right superlatives for his phenomenal batting. Tendulkar took 259 innings to get there, while Kohli has so far batted in 205 innings. Fortune, too, was on Kohli's side as West Indies skipper Jason Holder dropped his Indian counterpart on 44. He made the touring side pay by hitting 13 fours and four sixes in his 129 ball knocks. Seventeen summers ago, Tendulkar had ventured into what was then an unchartered territory, during a match against Australia. On Wednesday, Kohli became the 13th batsman to reach the milestone with an unbeaten 157 off 129 balls, which was his 37th ODI hundred. 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 361-6 in their 50 overs, after winning the toss and opting to bat.  In the process, he also became the fastest to 1,000 runs in a calendar year, taking just 11 innings to get there. Besides Tendulkar and Kohli, Sourav Ganguly, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Rahul Dravid are the other Indian cricketers to cross 10000 runs in the format.
