India captain Virat Kohli is just 133 runs away from reaching 12,000 runs in his ODI career and could do so in India’s upcoming three-match ODI series against South Africa. Kohli has 239 innings under his belt in his career which means that if he crosses 12,000 in this series, he will break Sachin Tendulkar’s record to become the fastest to the landmark.
Dharamsala: India commander Virat Kohli is only 133 flees from arriving at 12,000 runs in his ODI profession and could do as such in India’s forthcoming three-coordinate ODI arrangement against South Africa. Kohli has 239 innings added to his repertoire in his profession which implies that in the event that he crosses 12,000 right now, will break Sachin Tendulkar’s record to turn into the quickest to the milestone.
Tendulkar had taken 300 innings to find a workable pace. Previous Australian skipper Ricky Ponting is right now second on the rundown having arrived at 12,000 ODI runs in 314 innings while previous Sri Lanka chief Kumar Sangakkara did as such in 336 innings.
Kohli will be hoping to break the shackles in the main open door he gets in the South Africa arrangement as he has been experiencing an uncommon unpleasant fix of structure.
In the as of late finished up three-coordinate ODI arrangement in New Zealand, Kohli’s most elevated score was 51 and he scored 15 and 9 in the other two matches. In the consequent two-coordinate Test arrangement, Kohli oversaw scores of 2, 19, 3 and 14 as India lost the arrangement 2-0.
The first ODI among India and South Africa will be played on Thursday in Dharamsala followed continuously ODI on Sunday in Lucknow. The last ODI will be played on March 18 in Kolkata.
