Riding on the back of brilliant unbeaten 157 by Team India skipper Virat Kohli, the Men-in-Blue have set a target of 320 runs for the visiting Carribean side. This was Kohli’s 37th century of his glorious career and in the process, he broke Sachin Tendulkar’s record of being the fastest to reach the 10,000 run mark. The team India skipper took only 205 innings and 213 matches to enter the elite club. His stupendous knock, included 13 fours, and 5 sixes.
Kohli achieved the feat in the 3rd ball of the 37th over. The Indian skipper broke the record of his idol and Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar. He also became the 5th Indian batsman to do so a joining the likes of Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, and current Team India wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
