Virat Kohli started at Visakhapatnam where he had left at Guwahati, scoring his second successive hundred.

Virat set a plethora of records during his masterly innings of 157 not out, most notable being reaching the 10,000 run mark in this format.

Virat is the fifth Indian and 13th batsman overall to reach this mark.

And he is the quickest to do so taking only 205 innings -- 54 less than previous record holder Sachin Tendulkar.
