India vs West Indies 2nd ODI LIVE: India 321/6 in 50 overs, Kohli 157

With two deliveries left and Windies requiring 7 runs, Hope drove the penultimate delivery for a couple before slicing the final ball for a boundary, to which the Indian players gathered around and appreciated the effort of the right-hander as the match ended in a thrilling tie.

Virat Kohli Wednesday became the fastest to score 10,000 runs in One-day Internationals, rewriting, fittingly enough, the iconic Sachin Tendulkar's record and compounding the cricket community's conundrum to find the right superlatives for his phenomenal batting. Kohli also became India's highest run-getter against West Indies when he broke Tendulkar's record of 1,573 runs in 10 innings.

All three players have had their differences with the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) over the years but Pollard and DJ Bravo continued to enjoy fame and fortune overseas, due to their skills in the T20 arena.

With 14 tons as the Indian skipper, Virat is second only to Ricky Ponting with most centuries as a skipper in ODI cricket. While it took Tendulkar 259 innings to reach the figure, Kohli achieved the same in 205 innings.

'It's a great honour for me to represent my country, ' Kohli said.

Bravo added that it is time for him to pass on the torch to next generation of players.

"Personally, I´m pretty proud of my innings and my milestone".

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