Kanpur: Virat Kohli on Sunday became the fastest batsman to score 9,000 runs in ODIs during the series-deciding third game against New Zealand in Kanpur on Sunday.

Overall, Kohli, who played his 202nd match on Sunday, has become the 19th batsman to breach the 9,000-run mark, making him the fastest to get there beating A.B. de Villiers, according to ESPNCricinfo. Kohli got to the landmark in the 37th over when he guided one off Grandhomme towards the third man for a four.

The Indian captain also scored his 32nd century during the match. He is second after Sachin Tendulkar (49) in the all-time list of most ODI centuries.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni had reached the 9,000-run milestone last year while other Indians who have done so are Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly and Mohammad Azharuddin.

Earlier in the series, the Indian captain had surpassed Australian great Ricky Ponting in the list of most ODI hundreds with his 31st century. Kohli had a quiet series against the Australians by his standards but he is back to his best against the Black Caps.
