Kohli is only the second batsman to cross the 10,000-run mark in that position, after former Australia captain Ricky Ponting.

The third batsman on the list is former Sri Lanka batsman Kumar Sangakkara, who scored 9,747 runs from 238 innings, followed by South Africa’s Jacques Kallis (7,774). Coming back to the match, Kohli and KL Rahul’s brilliant partnership revived India’s innings after opener Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma failed to score big. After the completion of 26 overs, India’s score read 121/2, with Kohli and Rahul playing on 47 and 42 respectively.

India is leading the three-match ODI series against England after winning the first game by 66 runs. A victory in this game will seal the series for the hosts, meaning it is a must-win game for the visitors if they are to keep their hopes alive.
