Virat Kohli and Manish Pandey helped India beat Sri Lanka by seven wickets in the solitary T20I held in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

Kohli once again made his way to set world record by notching his 30th ODI century. Here are 5 interesting records that Kohli broke during his stunning performance vs Sri Lanka:

1 - Virat Kohli has scored 4 ODI centuries in 2017, which is the highest by any batsman in this year.

2 - This was his 8th ODI century against Sri Lanka, the highest by any batsman against Sri Lanka (on par with Sachin Tendulkar's 8 tons). Only Sachin (9 tons vs Australia) has scored more centuries against any opposition.

3 – Virat Kohli is the only batsman who has faced the least number of innings to reach 30 ODI centuries, equal to Ricky Ponting’s record. Tendulkar took 267 innings while Ponting needed 349 innings to achieve the same record.

4 – Virat Kohli also became the first batsman to score 1,000 runs in ODIs in 2017. The previous record for the fastest Indian batsman to achieve 1000 runs in a particular year was held by Kohli himself.

5 – Kohli’s 30th ODI was his 19th century internationally, equalling former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly for the second highest number of centuries scored by Indians overseas.
