India skipper Virat Kohli's 37th ODI ton went in vain as the West Indies pulled off a heart-stopping chase to hold the hosts to a tie in the nail-biting second One-day worldwide at the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium here on Wednesday. Specially in the second innings, when they got stuck in despite being three down.

Talking about the team combination, Holder revealed that left-arm pacer Obed Mccoy would make his ODI debut in the match.

Now, he also holds the record of scoring 1,000 ODI runs in a calendar year in fewest innings (11) bettering his own record of 2012 (15 innings).

But the day belonged to Kohli who reached 10,000 runs in his 205th innings as he surpassed fellow batting great Sachin Tendulkar, who first crossed the 10,000-run mark in 259 innings in 2001.

He is just the 13th batsman, and fifth Indian, to join the elite list.

Apart from Kohli and Tendulkar, Dhoni is the only other Indian to have scored more than 4,000 runs on home soil.
