Virat Kohli is Just One Win Away to Becoming Most Successful Test Captain
Team India led by Virat Kohli will start the ICC World Test Championship today with a two-game series against the West Indies Vs India. Virat Kohli is just one win away to become the most successful captain of Indian cricket. If India won the first Test against the West Indies in Antigua, it would equal the record of former Indian captain MS Dhoni.
Dhoni, the Indian team, has 27 wins in 60 Test matches while Kohli currently has 26 wins in 46 Tests. Since Kohli was announced as the permanent captain of India’s Test team in 2015, India has won memorable test matches both at home and abroad. Earlier this year, India won their first set of Tests in Australia, beating the hosts 2-1 in their home.
If India wins both matches against the Windies, Kohli will be at the top of the table with 28 wins from 48 games tested. Sourav Ganguly, who has 21 wins, is third on the list of victories as captain of Team India. However, the record for the most victories in the trials belongs to former South African skipper Graeme Smith – who has 53 victories to his name.
