Kohli smashes Tendulkar's record in reaching 10 000 ODI runs

Kohli became the fastest to 4,00 ODI runs in India.

India skipper Virat Kohli on Wednesday surpassed batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar to become the fastest batsman to amass 10,000 runs in One-day Internationals (ODI).

His century against West Indies in the first ODI on Sunday was his 60th worldwide hundred (36 in ODIs and 24 in Tests) and the 386 innings it took him meant he was the fastest to reach that landmark, taking 40 fewer than the previous record-holder Tendulkar.

Khashoggi killing was ‘grave mistake’, don’t know details, says Saudi foreign minister
Last month, Germany approved €416 million ($480 million) worth of military exports to Saudi Arabia for 2018. Another Saudi official attributed the death to a chokehold.

Notably, Ganguly had needed 263 innings while former Australia captain Ricky Ponting achieved the milestone in 266 innings.

Bangladesh, England, New Zealand and Zimbabwe are yet to have a player reach the 10,000-run mark in this format. He was an innings slower than South Africa great Jacques Kallis, who got to the landmark in Jan 2009. "The focus has to be that much precise and finer in that moment", he added.

The India captain has dominated with the bat in ODIs in recent years.

Archbishop of Washington DC Cardinal Donald Wuerl resigns amid cover-up scandal
For his part, Bishop Wuerl was sent back to his native Pittsburgh, where he was installed as the diocesan bishop in March 1988. The pope also praised Cardinal Wuerl's "nobility" in choosing to step down rather than defend his record under fire.

Stating that he is grateful Kohli also said that records do not matter much to him. Tendulkar, who finished his career with 18,426 ODI runs, had hit 49 centuries from 463 matches (452 innings).

The 29-year-old, who is ranked No.1 on the ICC batting charts, is inarguably the best batsman in the 50-over format now in the world. From 73 matches, he has scored 6331 runs at an average of 54.57.

Eight people remain detained in Saudi corruption crackdown, crown prince says
Asked if Khashoggi faces charges in Saudi Arabia, Prince Mohammed said it was first important to discover where he was. She added that "the burden of proof is on Saudi Arabia" to prove that the journalist left the consulate in peace.
