One of those strange things took place in the game between India and Pakistan when the Indian skipper Virat Kohli walked back feeling that the had edged Mohammad Amir to Sarfaraz Ahmed. The major surprise was that the Snicko hasn’t displayed anything in the following replays.

It was in the 47th over of the game when Virat Kohli tried to pull Mohammad Amir. But, he failed to connect the ball, which went over his head. Meanwhile, the skipper felt that he had edged the willow, which made him walk off from the ground even before the umpire adjudged it as out.

Virat Kohli scored 77:

In the replays, the  Snicko Meter showed nothing, which surprised one and all in the stadiums. Meanwhile, the Indian Skipper Virat Kohli, who was in the dressing room, looked at his willow by signalling to his teammates that he heard a sound of it.

Despite that, the Indian skipper Virat Kohli got quite a few things to remember the game for a long time. He broke the record of Sachin Tendulkar to become the quickest batsman to reach 11,000 ODI runs.

Before the start of the match, the Indian captain was on 10943 runs in 221 innings, just 57 runs away from the mark. He blasted his 51st half-century to make history, by reaching the milestone in under 11 years and in 222 innings. Kohli incidentally already holds the record for fastest 10000, 9000 and 8000 ODI runs.

Overall, Virat Kohli is the 9th player after Tendulkar, Kumar Sangakkara, Ricky Ponting, Sanath Jayasuriya, Mahela Jayawardene, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Jacques Kallis and Sourav Ganguly to score 11,000 ODI runs. Kohli is the 3rd Indian in the elite list after Tendulkar and Ganguly.

Apart from Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma was the other batsman in the match against Pakistan to break quite a few records. He became the second batsman to score a century against Pakistan in the World Cup game.

Rohit also got past MS Dhoni for the most number of sixes by an Indian batsman in international cricket when he hit Hasan Ali over the deep fine-leg boundary in the sixth over.
