“To equal a feat with a player like him is a very good feeling”
India vice-captain Virat Kohli has announced that he feels honoured to have equalled legendary West Indian batsman Sir Vivian Richards’ record as the fastest batsman to score 5,000 ODI runs.
Kohli accomplished the feat during India’s six-wicket win over the West Indies in the first ODI in Kochi.
“I was told in Bangalore during the last ODI (about the record) but I did not really remember it because I do not approach a game thinking about records,” Kohli said. “I said to myself that if you bat well, along the way these milestones are bound to happen.
“To equal a feat with a player like him is a very good feeling but it does not stop here because it is more or less the beginning. It is nice to equal his record but still there is a long way to go.”
