The Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli is in the form of his life at the moment. Kohli notched up his 37th ODI ton during the second ODI against the Windies of the ongoing 5-match ODI series. En route his unbeaten ton, he also scaled to 10000 runs in ODI cricket. The good wishes came in flooding for him from all corners. One of his good friends, Chris Gayle, did not waste much time before wishing Kohli on this stupendous feat.
Having reached the 10000 run mark in just 205 innings, Virat Kohli became the fastest to reach the milestone number. Also, it is worth noting that Kohli took just 11 innings to reach the 10000 mark from the 9000 mark. Chris Gayle looked absolutely pleased to see Kohli reach the milestone.
