Updated : June 27, 2019 05:30 PM IST
Kohli achieved the feat in his 417th international innings, beating the record shared by two of the greatest cricketers of all time — Tendulkar and Lara.
The India captain achieved the feat when he whipped his West Indies counterpart Jason Holder towards midwicket for a single to take his score to 37 in their Cricket World Cup clash at Old Trafford on Thursday.
Kohli has become the 12th cricketer to reach the milestone and only the third Indian after Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid to register 20,000 international runs.
