IND vs WI 2nd ODI: Kohli obliterates record in a thrilling tie

It was an all Kohli show after that, with the star batsman smashing the ball to all parts of the ground.

Hope and Ashley Nurse (5) managed to get nine runs from the first five deliveries before Hope slashed the last ball of the match of the game to the point boundary to seal the tie.

West Indies made one change, leaving out fast bowler Oshane Thomas for debutant Obed McCoy.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli has broken legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar's 17-year record, becoming the fastest-ever to reach 10,000 one-day worldwide runs.

After a rather mediocre return to One Day cricket, the Indian selectors have axed Mohammad Shami from the Indian side for the rest of the ongoing series against the West Indies. Congratulations on achieving 10,000 runs in ODIs.

At Birmingham on 15 July, against Bangladesh in the Champions Trophy, Kohli became the fastest to reach 8,000 runs in ODI cricket. Kohli takes a single on the last ball.

However, not many surprises are expected in the T20 set-up from the squads that played in the shortest format against Ireland and England earlier this year.

In Guwahati, riding on centuries by Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, India wrapped up the match with nearly 8 overs to spare.

"It's an incredible achievement by Virat to complete 10,000 runs ODI before he is even 30 years old".

The team now includes Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Rishabh Pant, MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Khaleel Ahmed, Umesh Yadav, KL Rahul and Manish Pandey.

Director of Cricket, Jimmy Adams, in his tribute said: "Dwayne has been an outstanding performer across all three formats of the game. Congrats to Virat, played a brilliant knock and on getting to the 10,000 milestone", said West Indies captain Holder.

A 143-run partnership ensued between Hetmyer and Shai Hope for the fourth wicket as the duo took calculated risks.

He has the record of the best bowling strike rate, 32.7, for any Windies player in ODIs over the course of his 164 matches.
