Ahmedabad: Virat Kohli has been in good form in the ODIs and would be hoping to maximise it when India takes on West Indies in a three-match ODI series starting February 6. Kohli, who was sacked as the ODI captain of the side ahead of the South Africa tour, smashed two fifties in the three matches against the hosts.

Now, he has a chance to join former legend Sachin Tendulkar in an elite group. Tendulkar is the only cricketer to have scored more than 5000 ODI runs in India. Kohli needs six more runs to join the stalwart.

Interestingly, the former great took 121 innings to reach the milestone. He did it against West Indies.

Kohli, on other hand, could achieve the feat in his 96th ODI innings in India, if he manages to score 6 runs in the first ODI. The Sunday ODI would also be India’s 1000th match in the 50-over format, which is the most by any team.

In the wake of the spike in Covid cases across the country, all three ODIs would be played behind closed doors.

Meanwhile, Mayank Agarwal and Ishan Kishan have been added to the squad after Shikhar Dhawan and Ruturaj Gaikwad tested positive for Covid. Reports suggest that Rohit would open with Kishan. And that would be an exciting prospect.

It would be a new start in many ways for India as Rohit Sharma era as India’s limited-overs full-time captain. Would be interesting to see Kohli’s role on the side and how he contributes in the field.
