Virat Kohli on the brink of breaking ODI records

By Bisma Qamar @bismaqamar1

Since the day he started playing international cricket, the world knew he would be nothing like anyone else we have watched previously. When he enters the arena with his fierce aura, we all know the records will be made and broken and here he is once again on the verge of breaking multiple records. Virat Kohli is one fine batsman who can change the direction of the wind with his bat, and this time the right-hander will have an opportunity to add multiple honour under his belt.

World Record for most ODI runs against WI

Virat Kohli is just 19 runs away from becoming the player with the most ODI runs against Windies. Right now with 1912 runs, he is the second batsman in that particular category, the first being the legendary Pakistani batsman Javed Miandad who made 1930 runs.

Will become the first batsman to score most no. of runs in the realm of Windies

Currently, former Guyanese cricketer, Ramnaresh Sarwan holds the record for the most number of runs scored by a batsman in India-West Indies ODIs in West Indies. But soon Kohli might be able to name this achievement to himself. Sarvan has scored 700 runs in 17 matches while Kohli has made 556 runs in 12 matches.

Most no. of hundreds in IND vs WI matches in Windies

Kohli also has an opportunity to score the most no. of hundreds in India vs West Indies ODIs in Windies. As of now, he shared this record with former Windies opener Desmond Haynes and big inning in any of the coming three-match ODI series will make him the only batsman to do so.

So these are the majestic records which the skipper have a golden chance to make. But before that, we shouldn’t forget he is also the captain of the Indian team, so therefore his first priority will be to led his team to another victory by winning the One-Day series against West Indies. India has already dominated the Windies n the T20I series, so the team must be looking forward to snatching this one as well.
