Virat Kohli, on Saturday, December 10, became the first Indian batter to score 1000 runs in ODIs in Bangladesh. The 34-year-old achieved the feat during India’s third and final ODI against Bangladesh at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.

Kohli had the chance to reach the milestone in the first two ODIs in Dhaka. However, Shakib Al Hasan and Ebadot Hossain dismissed him cheaply. However, the right-hander put his best foot forward in the third match of the series.


Delhi-born Kohli was 15 runs short of the milestone and he did it without breaking much sweat. Second in the list is Sachin Tendulkar, who scored 827 runs from 16 matches at an average of 51.68 with two centuries and five half-centuries.

Kohli also broke former Sri Lankan batter Kumar Sangakkara’s record of most runs by a visiting batter in ODIs on Bangladesh soil. In 21 ODIs, the left-handed Sangakkara scored 1045 runs at an average of 52.25 with three hundreds and 10 half-centuries to show for his efforts.
