There is no denying the fact that Virat Kohli is the best batsman going around in the world. But these days as if being No.1 isn't enough Kohli keeps breaking records every time he has a bat in hand because - you guessed it - he can! Today in the coastal city of Visakhapatnam Kohli notched up his 10,000th run in ODIs and went on to score a 37th hundred against a hapless Windies' attack that was clueless about where to bowl to him.
Kohli also beat Sachin Tendulkar in becoming the fastest man to reach the 10k-runs mark in ODIs. Justifiably Twitter was all over him as he notched the trademark cover drives. Here are a few excerpts:
Software update all the time. Virat Kohli has redefined what consistency means. Got his 9000th odi run just 11 innings ago and got his 10000 th today, to go with his 37th century. Enjoy the phenomena #KingKohli pic.twitter.com/OPhvIsBRDJ— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) October 24, 2018
