The 10,000-run milestone, however, dazzling it might look is merely an outcome of the process to him.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli today broke Sachin Tendulkar's record as the fastest batsman to score 10,000 one-day global runs. The Indian skipper smashed 13 fours and 4 big sixes on his way to an unbeaten 157 to take India to a more than competitive total of 321/6.

Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli who had led entire cricket world on the storm by his rich skills with the bat on numerous occasions has managed to influence many.


In the 266 matches that Tendulkar played to reach the 10,000-run landmark, the average strike rate by other batsmen was 71.51; in Kohli's era it is 85.99. Tendulkar was the first batsman to get to 10,000 runs, making history against Australia on March 31, 2001 in his 259th innings. While Kohli continues to elevate his game with each passing year, the 29-year-old also made it clear that even after 10 years of global cricket he does not feel any "sense of entitlement". 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. MS Dhoni and Rishabh Pant both failed to last long and were dismissed cheaply, leaving Kohli to take up the big hitting role towards the end of the innings which he nailed perfectly on this particular occasion. You still have to work hard for every run that you score at the global level, because there are a lot of people who want this very badly.

Rishabh Pant also fell quickly, for a 13-ball 17, but Kohli remained strong and shifted gears to launch another onslaught, barely three days after a blazing 140-run knock.

Kohli has gone from 9000 to 10000 in just 11 innings. He became the quickest to make it to the club, smashing the record of his compatriot Sachin Tendulkar, by taking 53 matches and 54 innings fewer than the former great.
