Virat Kohli scores 9000 runs in ODIs, breaks AB de Villiers record

  • India vs New Zealand

India skipper Virat Kohli on Sunday became the fastest to reach 9000 ODI runs, taking just 194 innings to achieve the feat.

Kohli has been phenomenal in 2017, with 1460 runs from 26 matches at an extraordinary average of 76.84, the Indian captain has also maintained a hefty strike rate of 99.11 so far.

This match was, by all means, a battle between two fielding sides and perhaps the Indian fielders held their nerve better when it mattered the most towards the end of the New Zealand innings which propelled them to a win.

India beat New Zealand by six runs in the third and final one-day worldwide in Kanpur on Sunday to take the series 2-1.

Ahead of the Kanpur ODI, Kohli was on 1991 runs from 39 matches at 58.55.




Kohli and Dhoni played snooker, while chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav was seen giving air hockey a shot.

Kohli, in 2013, became the fastest player to 5000 ODI runs, equalling West Indies' Viv Richards record, reaching the mark in 114 innings.

Rohit scored 147 and Kohli was dismissed for 113 and it was their partnership which was the primary reason behind India's eventual score of 337. Chahal soon spun into action to send Munro and Williamson trudging back to the pavilion as New Zealand stumbled in their chase. I don't think it will seam as much but still there should be some help and then dew later on in the game.

"Feels good when the team wins, and you contribute. It is a great opportunity for us and we want to enjoy it out there", Williamson said.

"Naturally, you look back at the game and to lose by six runs and come so close in a big run chase is frustrating, disappointing", Williamson said. "Irrespective of what we do first, we need to do it well". In the first ODI of the ongoing series against the Black Caps he broke Ricky Ponting's record of 30 ODI centuries to become the second highest centurion in the format.
