Kohli smashes Tendulkar's record as fastest man to 11,000 ODI runs
Virat Kohli smashed Sachin Tendulkar's record as the quickest man to 11,000 ODI runs during India's Cricket World Cup clash with Pakistan.
The India captain came into Sunday's meeting at a raucous Old Trafford just 57 shy of the landmark, which he reached courtesy of a glanced four off Hasan Ali to help his side to 290-3 having been put in.
Kohli's milestone came up in only his 222nd ODI innings, a remarkable 54 fewer than his compatriot, who needed 276.
Ranked the number-one batsman in the 50-over format, Kohli is the ninth man to reach 11,000 runs and the third from his country after Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly.
