Virat Kohli 133 Runs Away From Breaking Tendulkar's ODI Record

Virat Kohli has been a run machine across all formats over the years. However, the India captain is going through a lean patch that saw him struggle to put bat to ball on the New Zealand tour.

Kohli has 239 innings under his belt in his career which means that if he crosses 12,000 in this series, he will break Sachin Tendulkar’s record to become the fastest to the landmark.

Sachin Tendulkar had taken 300 innings to get to the landmark. Former Australian captain Ricky Pointing is currently second on the list having reached 12,000 ODI runs in 314 innings while former Sri Lanka captain Sangakkara did so in 336 innings.

Kohli will be looking to break the shackles in the first opportunity he gets in the South Africa series as he has been going through a rare rough patch of form.

Virat Kohli has enjoyed a good record against South Africa in ODI cricket. The last time India and South Africa played an ODI series, Virat Kohli scored 558 runs at an average of 186.

In the recently concluded three-match ODI series in New Zealand, Kohli’s highest score was 51 and he scored 15 and 9 in the other two matches. In the subsequent two-match Test series, Kohli managed scores of 2, 19, 3 and 14 as India lost the series 2-0.
