Dubai: Virat Kohli became the fastest-ever batsman to reach 10,000 One-day International runs, making history in his 205th innings against the West Indies in Visakhapatnam.

The 29-year-old surpassed fellow Indian batting great Sachin Tendulkar, who first crossed the 10,000-run mark in 259 innings in 2001.

Kohli, playing his 213th ODI, took a single off spinner Ashley Nurse to reach the milestone. He is just the 13th batsman, and fifth Indian, to join the elite list.

Interesting, the top three batsmen who reach the magic figures in fewer number of innings are all Indians - Kohli (205), Tendulkar (259) and Sourav Ganguly (263).
