As Virat Kohli went on a record-breaking spree against the Windies during the second ODI at Visakhapatnam, the Mumbai police took to Twitter to congratulate the Indian skipper on his achievement.

Kohli became the fastest to 10,000 ODI runs, getting there in 54 fewer innings than Sachin Tendulkar who held the record previously. He became the 13th batsman to reach the milestone with an unbeaten 157 off 129 balls, which was his 37th ODI hundred. 

"No over-speeding challan here, just accolades & best wishes for more @imVkohli ! Many congratulations on your amazing feat!," read a tweet posted on Mumbai Police's official Twitter handle.

The tweet went viral and has generated over 2,000 likes and nearly 400 retweets. 

In the process, Kohli also became the fastest to 1,000 runs in a calendar year, taking just 11 innings to get there.
