Virat Kohli on Wednesday became the fastest to score 10,000 runs in One-day Internationals (ODIs), rewriting, fittingly enough, the iconic Sachin Tendulkar's record and compounding the cricket community's conundrum to find the right superlatives for his phenomenal batting. South Africa's Hashim Amla had achieved the landmark in just 101 innings and Shikhar is likely to take over the second position by surpassing Virat Kohli and Sir Viv Richard by scoring 5,000 runs in 111 matches.
At a venue set amidst picturesque hills, Kohli reached the mark when he played Ashley Nurse for a single in the 37th over of the second ODI against the West Indies. India, who lead the five-match series 1-0, made just one change from their opening win on Sunday with spinner Kuldeep Yadav coming in for Khaleel Ahmed.
"Looks like a nice and hard wicket".
Kohli is now the fifth Indian batsman and the 13th overall to complete 10,000 runs in ODIs.
"Because of our bowling combination, we want to put up a score on the board and ask them to chase it down".
West Indies skipper Jason Holder said he was not disappointed with bowling first as the tourists have handed left-arm paceman Obed McCoy his worldwide debut.
"Not disheartened to bowl first". He has replaced pacer Oshane Thomas in the Caribbean squad. The pitch should be okay for a hundred overs, looks like a good pitch.
