25 overs into the India innings in Vizag and Virat Kohli has brought up his 49th ODI half-century.
The Master Blaster had taken 259 innings to reach the milestone but Kohli achieved it in just his 205th innings, becoming just the 13th batsman to join the exclusive list.
Visakhapatnam, India: Skipper Virat Kohli became the fastest-ever batsman to reach 10,000 one-day worldwide runs, smashing an unbeaten 157 as India posted 321 for six against the West Indies on Wednesday. Under fire Mahendra Singh Dhoni will look to get some runs in the second ODI but against this toothless Windies attack, it is unlikely whether the veteran stumper, who is not in the best of form, will get an opportunity to bat.
Tendulkar, who had been breaking records at will during his 25-year-long global career, reached to the landmark in 259 innings.
Kohli has been in sublime form across formats this year and has scored over 900 runs in ODIs alone. Today's match is going to be a historic one as Virat Kohli needs only 81 more runs to reach another milestone of his career, i.e. 10,000 runs. Kohli completed 10,000 runs in 213 matches and 205 innings.

"King" Kohli comfortably bettered the record set by the man who was to Indian cricket for over two decades what the 29-year-old has been for the past few years.
He leaked runs in the first game of the ongoing series, but considering his all-round abilities, he is expected to get a longer run. The Indian captain also holds the record for the fastest to 8000 and 9000 ODI runs.
India elected to bat first but lost their openers early for 40 runs.
