Kohli went past the milestone when he reached the score of 81. Later, he went on to post his 37th ODI century and eventually stayed unbeaten on 157 as India had put a target of 322 runs for the Jason Holder's side.

Kohli took 205 innings to reach the feat while Tendulkar accomplished the feat in 259 innings. Former India captain Sourav Ganguly took 263 innings to reach the milestone and Mahendra Singh Dhoni played 273 innings to breach the 10,000-run mark in one-day internationals.

Despite such heroics from Kohli, India failed to beat West Indies in the 2nd ODI, after Shai Hope's gutsy hundred helped his side to end the game in a dramatic tie.
