Indian skipper Virat Kohli is all over the internet and for some serious reason. The 29-year-old reached the feat of scoring 10,000 ODI runs in the ongoing game against the Windies. Kohli is the fastest to get to the magical figures. The batter remained unbeaten on 157* as India piled up 321/6. The stylish batsman didn’t hit a single six until he git to his hundred.
Upon reaching the three-figure mark, Kohli announced himself with some lusty hits. He ended up hitting four sixes and 13 fours. Apart from him, Ambati Rayudu made 73, batting at no.4. This was his second consecutive ton after hitting one in Guwahati while chasing a 300-plus target.

Kohli breaks the internet
Pakistan batsman Mohammed Hafeez, who made a successful comeback into the Test side after a gap of two years, praised the Indian captain. Hafeez termed Kohli a great human being and expressed his happiness on knowing the news. His tweet read- “Congratulations to Virat Kohli to achieve milestone of 10000 runs in ODI cricket , Great player & Humble human, u entertaining all fans of cricket with ur Skills , Passion & determination , stay blessed”
Another Sub-continent cricketer Tamim Iqbal had lavished praise on the Indian batter ahead of today’s game. “I sometimes feel he is not human because the way he performs, my goodness, the moment he comes out to bat, it looks like he is going to score a hundred every game,” Tamim told Khaleej Times.
“I have seen all the great players that have played the game in the past 12 years. They have their own strong points. But I haven’t seen anyone that has dominated as much as Virat has,” Tamim said. Clearly, the cricketing world has bowed down to the man. Kohli is well-known for his fitness and the way he anchored his innings against the Windies speaks volume of the effort that he has put in.
