India and West Indies will clash for the second ODI in Visakhapatnam after a one-sided win in Guwahati. The visitors managed to put up on a good score, but later it turned out to be way less than par total thanks to blistering batting by Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.

After a century in the first ODI, where he broke Sachin Tendulkar's record of fastest to 60 tons in the format, Virat is on the verge of completing 10,000 ODI runs; fastest in terms of innings. He will be the fourth and overall thirteenth batsman to reach the landmark.

MS Dhoni is also in line to score 10,000 runs for India. He is just 51 runs short. However, Dhoni has already scored 10,000 runs in ODIs, but 174 runs were scored for Asia XI during the Afro-Asia Cup. 

Virat may reach another milestone during the series. He is only 47 runs behind Sachin to become the highest run scorer against West Indies in ODI.

The way Kohli batted in the first ODI and considering Windies bowling attack, the Indian captain is ready to register many records by his name.
