With 511 innings, Kohli has now scored 26,026 runs internationally. He achieved this milestone faster than Tendulkar did in 33 fewer innings. With his accomplishment, Kohli joins Tendulkar, Kumar Sangakkara of Sri Lanka, and Ricky Ponting of Australia as the fourth hitter in cricket history to surpass the 26,000-run milestone.

Additionally, Kohli’s 48th ODI century put him just one century away from Tendulkar’s 49 ODI tons world record. Considering his current play, Kohli has a good chance of breaking this record during the current ODI World Cup. Kohli has scored 78 hundred overall across all formats, which is second only to Tendulkar’s incredible 100 centuries.

When the game was on the line, Kohli refused to take the single to get his century when batting on 97 and only two runs were needed to win. But KL Rahul, his partner, pushed him to take the risk. Eventually, Kohli struck for six, capping off his century and India’s triumph.

With four straight victories, India has climbed to the top of the standings and will take on New Zealand on October 22 in Dharamsala. India can be proud of Kohli’s outstanding performance, which has also opened the door for new tournament records.
