By Sabyasachi Chowdhury: Virat Kohli, on Saturday, December 10, became the first Indian batter to score 1000 runs in ODIs in Bangladesh. The 34-year-old achieved the feat during India’s third and final ODI against Bangladesh at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram.

Kohli had the chance to reach the milestone in the first two ODIs in Dhaka. However, Shakib Al Hasan and Ebadot Hossain dismissed him cheaply. However, the right-hander put his best foot forward in the third match of the series.

The Delhi-born Kohli was 15 runs short of the milestone and he did it without breaking much sweat. Second in the list is Sachin Tendulkar, who scored 827 runs from 16 matches at an average of 51.68 with two centuries and five half-centuries.

Kohli also broke former Sri Lankan batter Kumar Sangakkara’s record of most runs by a visiting batter in ODIs on Bangladesh soil. In 21 ODIs, the left-handed Sangakkara scored 1045 runs at an average of 52.25 with three hundreds and 10 half-centuries to show for his efforts.

Tamim Iqbal is the leading ODI run-scorer in Bangladesh, having scored 3841 runs from 107 matches at an average of 38.41 with seven hundreds and 26 half-centuries. As far as the ongoing match is concerned, Kohli came to bat after India lost the early wicket of Shikhar Dhawan.

Mehidy Hasan Miraz removed Dhawan after using the DRS as India lost their first wicket with the score at 15 in 4.1 overs. Kohli started in a cautious manner, but stepped on the gas to score his half-century off 54 balls.
