Indian captain Virat Kohli has been one of the most prolific run-getters in international cricket since making his debut. But his domination of the 50-over format has been unlike any cricketer ever. Such has been his consistency in one-day internationals that he is primed to break the records of his idol Sachin Tendulkar, whose feats were once considered untouchable.

Former India skipper MS Dhoni won the 'ICC Spirit of Cricket Award of the Decade', chosen by fans for his gesture of calling back England batsman Ian Bell after a bizarre run out in the Nottingham Test in 2011.

The International Cricket Council on Monday recognised Kohli’s achievements by naming him the Men’s ODI cricketer of the decade. ICC wrote in a tweet, “VIRAT KOHLI is the ICC Men’s ODI Cricketer of the Decade. Only player with 10,000-plus ODI runs in the #ICCAwards period. 39 centuries, 48 fifties, 61.83 average and 112 catches”
