[dropcap]I[/dropcap]ndia’s run machine created history once again; Virat Kohli became the first Indian cricketer to hit three consecutive One Day International (ODI) hundreds during the third ODI against West Indies on Saturday.

This was the fourth consecutive century for Kohli on Indian soil and it was also the fourth consecutive century against West Indies for the Indian skipper.

Earlier, the 29-year-old cricketer had become the fastest batsman to reach the 10,000 run mark in ODI cricket. He achieved this feat in his 205th innings in Visakhapatnam as he scored an unbeaten 157, breaking the record of master blaster Sachin Tendulkar who had reached the same number in 259 innings.

On October 21, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma together hit a massive record partnership of 246 runs at Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati which is India’s biggest ever partnership in ODIs while batting second. The Indian skipper hit a masterful 140 off 107 deliveries while Rohit remained unbeaten on a 117-ball 152.

In this five match series Kohli has achieved various records.
