Kohli already holds the record for being the fastest to 10,000 ODI runs.
He missed out on an opportunity in India's third group stage match against New Zealand in Nottingham which was called off due to rain without a single ball being bowled.
At Manchester, Kohli brought up his 51st ODI half-century off 51 balls, his second fifty on the trot.
When rain stopped with India on 305/4 after 46.4 overs, the India captain was unbeaten on 71 off 62 deliveries (4x6).
Kohli first played second fiddle to Rohit Sharma (140) before changing gears as Hardik Pandya (26) struggled to find the middle of the bat.
