Rohit Sharma, the captain of India, became just the 15th player in One Day International history to score 10,000 runs.

In the eighth over of India vs. Sri Lanka’s Super Four match, Rohit blasted Kasun Rajitha’s nice length delivery behind the bowler’s head. For an incredible six, the ball sailed all the way over the long off region.

He reached the milestone of 10,000 ODI runs with this. He achieved this milestone in the second-fastest time among batters. He needed 241 innings to get here, which is just a little bit more than his fellow countryman Virat Kohli (205 innings).

He became the sixth Indian batsman to accomplish this. Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, and MS Dhoni come before him.
