Virat Kohli became the fastest to reach 12,000 runs in One-day International cricket. Kohli breached the mark in the third ODI against Australia in Canberra. Virat Kohli achieved the feat in his 242nd innings, which is 58 innings quicker than Sachin Tendulkar. Tendulkar had achieved the record of 12000 runs in his 300th ODI innings but Virat Kohli’s brilliance is such that he has managed to cross 12000 in under 250 innings and it is a testament to his average in ODIs currently, which is just under 60.
Kohli is the second-highest scorer for India in ODIs behind Tendulkar's 18,426 from 463 ODIs. The India captain also holds the record for the fastest batsman (in terms of innings) to 10,000 and 11,000 runs in ODIs. Kohli reached 11,000 runs in 222 innings and became the fastest to breach the 10000-run mark by doing so in his 205th inning.
Virat Kohli reached the landmark when he tapped Sean Abbott to mid off and took off for a quick single. Virat Kohli became the sixth player after Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, Kumar Sangakkara, Sanath Jayasuriya and Mahela Jayawardene. Read More...
