Virat Kohli also broke another record of Sachin Tendulkar with his century. In ODI cricket, Kohli has left behind Tendulkar in scoring the maximum number of centuries against a single opposition team. Tendulkar had scored 9 centuries in his ODI career against Australia, but Kohli scored a century in the third ODI against Sri Lanka, scoring his 10th ODI century against them and taking this record to his name. After Sri Lanka, Virat has scored the most ODI hundreds against the West Indies with 9.

At the same time, during this match, Virat Kohli also left behind Sri Lankan legend Mahela Jayawardene in terms of scoring the most runs in ODI cricket. While Jayawardene had 12650 ODI runs, Kohli has more than 12700 runs and has come fifth in the list of highest run-scorers.
