CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA: Indian captain Virat Kohli broke Sachin Tendulkar's 17-year-old record by crossing the 12000-run mark in the ODIs, during the third ODI against Australia.

Kohli broke Tendulkar’s record of being the fastest player to register 12,000 ODI runs in a career. 

Tendulkar had reached the mark in his 300th innings with a boundary against Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi at Centurion in 2003.

Kohli needed 23 runs to achieve this feat and he achieved this in his 241st innings. 

The Indian skipper is the sixth player in the list; after Australia’s Ricky Ponting, Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara, Sri Lanka’s Sanath Jayasuriya, and Sri Lanka’s Mahela Jayawardene.
