Virat Kohli didn't stop even after reaching his century and slammed runs for fun eventually staying unbeaten on 157 as India posted a mammoth total of 321 runs in 50 overs.

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

Save the one dropped catch by West Indies skipper Jason Holder at mid-off, Kohli looked untroubled throughout and seemed to be satisfied with the way his partner at the other end, Rayudu, was batting.

Seventeen summers ago, Tendulkar had ventured into what was then an unchartered territory, during a match against Australia.

Virat Kohli on Wednesday became the fastest cricketer to reach 10,000 runs in one-day internationals during the second match of the series against the Windies at Vizag. Shai Hope, who came to bat at one down when West Indies were 36/1, played a patient innings from the beginning and recorded his second ODI century.

Having an enviable record at the Dr YSR ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium with scores of 118, 117, 99 and 65, Kohli began his latest innings with a boundary through the off-side. In doing so Kohli became the fastest to reach 10,000 runs. In the process he also went past 1000 runs in 2018 in ODIs, and became the leading run-scorer in the format in the calendar year. Earlier this year during the ODI leg of the South African tour, Kohli became the fastest to reach the 9000 ODI runs too. He is now the world's No.1 batsman in both the Test and one-day formats.

In the first match against the Caribbean side, Kohli notched up his 36th ODI hundred as he stroked his way to a breezy 140, helping the home team take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

Besides Kohli and Tendulkar (18,426), the other Indian batters to achieve the feat are former skippers Sourav Ganguly (11,363), Rahul Dravid (10,889) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who reached the milestone not very long ago.
