When Kane Williamson scores 32 runs against Australia in the morning, he is the third-fastest man in history scoring 6000 runs in international one-day cricket.
Only Virat Kohli and Hashim Amla have done so achieved this landmark faster than Williamson's 138 innings so far. Hit 32 or more and Williamson will reach the mark in 139.
In fact, he has a bit of space ̵
1; the next best is the notable Sir Vivian Richards, who needed 141 innings to reach 6000. It is a mark of Williamson's genius of constancy; Richards was known as the "master blaster" who wreaked havoc with every attack. Some of the other outstanding players that Williamson will overtake in the top 10 of the fastest to 6000 levels are: Sourav Ganguly, AB de Villiers, Brian Lara, Matthew Hayden, Dean Jones and our own Martin Guptill (who needed 157 innings) to get there).
