Virat Kohli brings up yet another hundred with a glorious hit

Virat Kohli brings up yet another hundred with a glorious hit

Some years ago, Sachin Tendulkar, after scoring his 100th worldwide century, said he would love to see an Indian - someone like Kohli or Rohit Sharma - break his records.

As Virat Kohli went on a record-breaking spree against the Windies during the second ODI at Visakhapatnam, the Mumbai police took to Twitter to congratulate the Indian skipper on his achievement.

India vs West Indies 2nd ODI: India captain Virat Kohli's 37th century may not have helped India win the second ODI at Vizag as it ended in a tie, but Kohli's breathtaking 157* unbeaten helped him bag the Man of the Match. Bangladesh, England, New Zealand and Zimbabwe are yet to have a player reach the 10,000-run mark in this format.

And with his latest century, Kohli achieved yet another milestone.

Tendulkar had taken 11 years and 103 days to reach the 10,000 milestone.

He got to 10,000 runs with a single off spinner Ashley Nurse in his 213th ODI. However, Kohli and Ambati Rayudu stitched together a partnership of 139 runs to bail India out of trouble.

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. Incredibly, Kohli who hit 13 boundaries and four sixes in the encounter, bettered the iconic mark of India legend Sachin Tendulkar by reaching the tally in 54 innings less. However, should he continue at his current pace, Kohli - still only 29 - will surely surpass that number before the end of his career.
