Virat Kohli eyes great personal milestone in the battle of unbeatens
Rain fright looms large in Nottingham where India and New Zealand – the two unbeaten teams of the tournament are shining their armaments for a major face off. In the midst of weariness losing Shikhar Dhawan, Indian skipper Virat Kohli is eyeing grand personal milestones.
Kohli is just 57 runs away from becoming the fastest to 11,000 ODI runs. He is standing with 10,943 runs in 221 innings and already holds the record for being the fastest to 10000 ODI runs.
It will take just 57 runs against New Zealand for Kohli to become the first batsman to take less than 11 years to complete the feat.
He will also become only the third Indian and ninth cricketer in the world to get to 11000 ODI runs. The other Indians to achieve the record are Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly.
Not only this record, Kohli is about to break Sehwag’s highest run against New Zealand in ODIs as he is just four runs away from becoming India’s’ second-highest run-getter.
Sehwag is placed second with 1157 runs in 23 innings while Tendulkar with 1750 runs is the highest-run getter against the Black Caps. Kohli has 1154 runs in 19 innings against New Zealand.
New Zealand Probable XI: Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, Tom Latham, Jamesh Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson, Trent Boult
