As per report india Captain virat kohli is just 19 runs away from overtaking pakistan great Javed Miandad as the highest run-scorer against West Indies in ODI cricket. Meanwhile Miandad played his last ODI against the Windies in 1993 and so Kohli will be breaking a 26 year old record if he manages to hit 19 runs in the upcoming second ODI in Port of spain.

Furthermore Miandad took 64 innings to score 1930 runs against the West Indies and if Kohli manages to surpass him in the second ODI, he will have taken just 34 innings to do so. Apparently the Indian captain did not get to bat in the first ODI of the series as West Indies had batted first and only 13 overs could be bowled before rain in Providence ensured that the match was washed out. Furthermore in the T20I series that preceded the ODIs, Kohli was india's highest scorer with 106 runs under his belt. He was the second highest run-scorer in the series overall behind kieron pollard who scored 115 runs. india won the series 3-0.



Moreover Chris Gayle is set to overtake Brian Lara to become the highest run-scorer for West Indies in one-day internationals. Gayle needs 7 runs more to go past Lara. Chris Gayle debuted in 1999 and announced his decision to retire from ODIs after the end of the World Cup. He made his last appearance in the ODI World Cup and then made a U-turn in a press conference during the tournament and insisted that he will play ODIs against india and at least a Test match. Reportedly Brian Lara finished with 10348 runs including 19 hundreds and 62 fifties from 295 ODIs. Gayle will be played his 297th ODI for the Windies and 300th overall, which is also a record for a West Indian in the 50-over format.
