Not only has Kohli become a likely a certain prospect to refine ODI records of Sachin Tendulkar which were once considered invincible, Kohli also stands among legends in world cricket with his captaincy numbers. And the end of the span between 2010 and 2019, Kohli has become the highest run-getter in ODIs in any decade and a prolific skipper as well.

Kohli recorded 11125 runs in 227 matches between 2010 and 2019, at an average of 60.79 with 42 centuries and 52 half-centuries. He finished atop in this decade, followed by Rohit Sharma who scored 8249 runs in 180 matches at 53.56 with 28 centuries and 39 fifties.
