Indian batsman Virat Kohli is currently in the middle of a dream run in international cricket and his rich vein of form has also attributed to a number of Indian victories. The 29-year-old is currently captaining the national team in the five-match ODI series against Windies and has churned out 297 runs with his best score of 157 coming in the second match in Visakhapatnam.
The Delhi-born cricketer came to bat after India lost Rohit Sharma early to Kemar Roach. He didn’t blaze away and buckled down to play another useful knock. Gradually as his innings progressed, the right-hander got the measure of the conditions and found the boundaries without much fuss. He remained not out and guided his team to 321/6 in the allotted 50 overs.

The knock was laced with 13 boundaries and four hits into the stands. The incredible knock wasn’t match-winning but was good enough to help him garner accolades from every nook and corner of the cricketing fraternity. He became the fastest batsman to score 10,000 ODI runs in merely his 205th innings, surpassing the legendary Sachin Tendulkar.
Virat also accomplished 1,000 ODI runs in the calendar year and has the chance of adding a few more to his tally as, after the Windies, the Men in Blue are scheduled to play Australia later this year. In the meantime, Punjab cricketer Yuvraj Singh heaped praises on the Indian batsman. Yuvraj had an impressive outing in the Vijay Hazare Trophy.
He played seven matches and scored 264 runs at an average of 37.71. His top score of 96 came against Railways in Bangalore. The southpaw took to Twitter and wrote, “What a phenomenal feat to achieve in 200 plus games ! Congratulations Vk for scoring 10 thousand one day international runs. Unbelievable stuff @imVkohli,”
