India captain Virat Kohli became the fastest batsman to reach 10,000 one-day international (ODI) runs against West Indies.

Kohli, who achieved the feat in his 205th innings, surpassed India legend Sachin Tendulkar, who did it in 259 innings in 2001.

He got to 10,000 runs with a single off spinner Ashley Nurse in his 213th ODI.

The 29-year-old is the 13th batsman to reach the milestone and the fifth Indian.

Meanwhile, organisers on Saturday launched one of the main initiatives associated with the hosting of the ICC Women’s Twenty20 World Cup, as the region prepares to host the historic stand-alone tournament next month.

Several hundred people, including over 100 participants, turned out to mark the unveiling of the Mothers and Daughters programme in Antigua — a coaching project piloted by the International Cricket Council and organised by Cricket West Indies (CWI).

It forms part of events around the region’s hosting of the tournament, which will be played in Antigua, St. Lucia and Guyana from November 9-24.
