In a short period of time, Kohli has grown into one of the best batsmen in the world. His sequence of 100 non-stop matches started on August 25, 2010 in Dambulla against Sri Lanka.

Since 2010 to now, Kohli has broken several records as a batsman and also was part of India's World Cup winning side in 2011.

Overall, Kohli is playing in 132nd ODI. Before the start of this match, he had scored 5,581 runs with 19 tons and 30 fifties.
