Having a right start to one’s cricket career will set the perfect base for the great journey. Being the fastest to 1000 Runs in ODI have always been the challenging task. The Base was set by the great Sir Vivian Richards on 1975, when he reached 1000 ODI Runs in his 21st Innings. Till now no other batsmen were able to break the record. Anyhow, the feat was equalled by 4 other batsmen who have also been the quickest to 1000 ODI Runs. Quentin De Kock, Kevin Peterson, Jonathan Trott and Babar Azam has reached the tally of 1000 ODI runs in 21 innings.

With the game getting more favor to the batsmen nowadays, this record never feels like a safe bet to stay long. But still, scoring 1000 ODI runs in less than 20 Innings is an uphill task for any young batsmen.
