Bengaluru: India captain Virat Kohli is set to surpass batting legend Sachin Tendulkar during the five-match ODI series at home against the West Indies.

Kohli, who has already broken several batting records in international cricket, is now set to eclipse another mark of Tendulkar’s.

This time, the right-hander from Delhi needs 187 runs to go past Tendulkar to become the highest run scorer for India in ODIs against the Windies.

Tendulkar leads the pack with 1,573 runs from 39 ODIs while Kohli occupies the second place with 1,387 runs from 27 matches. Rahul Dravid is at third with 1,348 runs from 40 ODIs. The top-five list is completed by former skippers Sourav Ganguly (1,142 runs in 27 ODIs) and Mohammad Azharuddin (998 runs from 43 ODIs).

The first ODI between India and the Windies will be played in Guwahati on October 21. In the just concluded Test series, India made a clean sweep with 2-0 verdict.

The ODIs will be followed by three T20Is from November 4 in Kolkata.
