In a dazzling display of cricketing prowess, Virat Kohli left the world in awe as he shattered records during his brilliant ODI performance against Pakistan. With a stunning knock, he crossed the monumental threshold of 13,000 ODI runs, a feat previously achieved only by cricket legends Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, Sanath Jayasuriya, and Mahela Jayawardene.
Quickest to 13,000 ODI runs
What makes Kohli’s achievement even more scintillating is the speed at which he accomplished it. While Sachin Tendulkar took 321 innings to reach this milestone, Kohli blazed through in just 267 innings, earning him the title of the quickest to the 13,000-run club. Ponting and Sangakkara also took over 300 innings to achieve this remarkable feat, while Jayasuriya reached it in 416 innings.
Most runs in men’s ODIs
But that’s not all; Kohli stands alone in another league. With an average over 50, he is the only one among these cricketing titans to maintain such consistency. With 47 ODI hundreds under his belt, he’s now just two away from equalling Tendulkar’s record tally of ODI tons.
Kohli’s cricketing prowess isn’t just a spectacle; it’s a seductive display of skill, determination, and unbridled passion for the game. As he continues to conquer new milestones, the cricketing world watches in awe, eagerly anticipating what this modern legend will achieve next on the field.
