Indian captain Virat Kohli endured his imperious run, scoring 107 towards the Windies on the MCA stadium in Pune, to turn into the primary Indian and the primary captain of any nation, to hit 3 consecutive ODI centuries.
Apparently, when Kohli were given to 20, he finished 8000 ODI runs whilst batting at No.three. He wanted 17 runs to achieve this milestone and finished it with a boundary.
Kohli reached the 8000 run-mark in ODIs at No.three in simply 154 innings making him the quickest to 8000 ODI runs at any batting place.
On the subject of innings, Sachin Tendulkar was once the former quickest to 8000 runs at a place in ODI cricket. Tendulkar finished 8000 ODI runs as an opener in 179 innings. Instead of Kohli and Tendulkar, no different participant finished 8000 ODI runs within 200 innings.
Batting at No.three, Sri Lanka veteran Kumar Sangakkara took 202 innings for this feat whilst former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly reached to 8000 ODI runs in 208 innings as an opener.
