Virat Kohli Has Redefined What Consistency Means: Virender Sehwag
Virender Sehwag hailed Virat Kohli after the India skipper scored yet another century in the ongoing second ODI against Windies.
Yet another match and yet another masterclass from Virat Kohli. There is absolutely no stopping the 29-year old as he followed his 140-run knock in the last game with a stunning knock of 157 not out. The knock came off just 129 balls and was studded with 13 fours and 4 sixes.
And with his latest century, Kohli achieved yet another milestone during the ongoing second ODI against Windies. The 29-year old became the fastest to complete 10,0000 runs in ODI cricket.
Kohli achieved the feat when he reached the 81-run mark. Just like the previous game, The right-handed had to come to the crease early again as Rohit Sharma was sent back by Kemar Roach for just 4. India soon found itself in further trouble when Ashley Nurse accounted for Shikhar Dhawan to leave the hosts reeling at 40 for 2. However, Kohli and Ambati Rayudu stitched together a partnership of 139 runs to bail India out of trouble.
Nurse broke the stand when he castled Rayudu for 73. And shortly after Rayudu’s departure, Kohli achieved the milestone of completing 10,000 runs in ODI cricket. He broke Sachin Tendulkar’s record to become the fastest man to achieve this record.
Kohli reached the feat in just his 205th innings while Tendulkar reached the milestone in his 259th innings. Kohli also became the fourth Indian and 13th overall to score 10,000 runs in ODI cricket.
During the course of the innings, Kohli also went past Tendulkar to become the Indian player with most runs in ODIs against Windies. He reached the feat when he crossed the 47-run mark during his knock.
Riding on his knock, India posted 321 for 6 in the allotted 50 overs. And as soon as the innings ended, Virender Sehwag took to Twitter to hail Kohli, tweeting:
