India captain Rohit Sharma on Tuesday became the sixth batsman and 15th overall for his country to reach 10,000 ODI runs.
Rohit achieved the feat in India's Asia Cup Super 4 match against Sri Lanka.
The Indian captain hit Sri Lanka's Kasun Rajitha for six to reach the milestone in the seventh innings, a day after Virat Kohli became the fastest batsman of all time to cross the 13,000-run landmark in a record 267 ODI innings.

In fact, Rohit completed his 10,000 runs in 241 innings, the second fastest ever after Kohli did it in 205 innings.

Other Indians in the 10,000-man club include Sachin Tendulkar (18,426 runs), Virat Kohli (13,026), Sourav Ganguly (11,363), Rahul Dravid (10,889) and MS Dhoni (10,773). As the only player in history to hit three double hundreds in 50-over cricket, Rohit also holds the record for most runs in an innings, or the highest individual score, with 264 against Sri Lanka at the Eden Gardens in November 2014
Rohit registered his first ODI double ton in November 2013 against Australia when he scored 209. Four years later, he smashed his second double ton against Sri Lanka - 208 not out at Mohali in December 2017.

With 30 centuries to date, Rohit is tied with former Australian captain Ricky Ponting for the third most ODI hundreds.
He is also third in the list of batsmen with most sixes in the format.
