India captain Rohit Sharma could soon enter an elusive list of players that features the ones who have scored 10,000 runs in ODI cricket.
Rohit went closer to the milestone during his 50-plus knock in the India-Pakistan Super Four clash of the Asia Cup 2023. He looked all set for a hundred and looked as if the landmark in the awaiting would be achieved there and then.
However, as Rohit perished while trying to take on Pakistan spinner Shadab Khan, he fell 78 runs short of going past the 10000-run mark in ODI cricket.
Indians with 10000 ODI runs
Meanwhile, there are already five Indian batters who have scored 10,000 runs. Overall, there are 14 players, who have recorded this feat, and the most number of them are the Indians.
Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, and MS Dhoni’s respective run tally in the ODIs totals above 10,000. Tendulkar sits at top of the all the other players.
Kohli is an active cricketer and could further move up in the list. At present, he is situated at the fifth spot after Tendulkar, Kumar Sangakkara, Ricky Ponting, and Sanath Jayasuriya.
