Another day, another milestone for Virat Kohli. Thats right! Virat became the fastest batsman to reach 8000 ODI runs and it took him only 175 innings!

The moment came in the 40th over when he took a single off Shakib. This also exhibited Virat’s selflessness as he was in his 90s but he did not refuse a single.

He could have easily waited and hit a couple of boundaries to get to his 28th Century since India still had ample number of balls left and even Rohit had gotten to his ton but Virat cares more about his country than his personal records and India is proud to have him as their skipper! Virat Kohli now averages a massive 53 in ODIs with 8008 runs in 183 matches. What a player!

Bangladesh looked on track until Tamim Iqbal lost his wicket and from there they lost their way. Their average bowling cost them the match.  His and Rohit Sharma’s partnership cruised India into the finals.

India’s top order batsmen Shikhar, Rohit and Virat have had a terrific Champions Trophy and they will be looking to continue the run and lift the cup on Sunday against Pakistan. Pakistan will be looking to finally overcome their losing streak against India.
