New Delhi: Indian skipper Virat Kohli is in supreme form and if he continues like this, he could break many records in the second one-day international match against West Indies in Visakhapatnam.

Kohli is now only 81 runs short of completing 10,000 runs in 50 overs format, and once he achieves this feat, he will become the fastest to them in terms of innings.

The current record is held by batting legend Sachin Tendulkar, who took 259 innings and it seems Kohli is very much in the scheme of things to overtake him.

Kohli has played 204 innings in ODIs so far and if he achieves this, he will become the 5th Indian to reach the 10,000-run mark.

Kohli made this record in 1st ODI

Kohli smashed a quick hundred against Windies and made 140 runs. With this century, the Indian captain reached the landmark of 60 international hundreds (36 in ODIs and 24 in Tests) and became the fastest to do so. He reached the landmark in 386 innings, taking 40 innings lesser than Sachin Tendulkar.

This was Kohli’s 22nd hundred while chasing a target in ODI cricket. Kohli now has 14 centuries as a captain in ODIs and is second in the list behind Ricky Ponting, who has 22 while leading Australia.
