In the Nottingham Test, India registered a huge win of 203 runs. Kohli was awarded the man of the match award for his outstanding performance in this match. The Indian captain scored 97 runs in the first innings of this Test, and in the second innings, he scored 103 runs. This is Virat’s first win as captain in England.
With this victory, Team India made a strong comeback in the series as well as Indian captain Kohli also became India’s second most successful captain.
Kohli left behind Ganguly
Virat Kohli became India’s second most successful captain after winning the Test in Nottingham. With this win, Kohli left behind former India captain Sourav Ganguly. Ganguly had won 21 matches while captaining 49 Tests for India. But Virat won his 22nd Test in just 38 matches.
In this case now Mahendra Singh Dhoni is ahead of Kohli only. Dhoni recorded 27 wins in 60 matches as a captain. As Kohli is moving forward, it seems that the time is not too far when he will break Dhoni’s record as well.
Still far away from World Record
Virat Kohli was playing his 38th Test match as a captain. Virat’s army won 22 times in these 38 matches. However, he has done best in Indian cricket but still very far away from world record.
The most successful captain in this list is the Australian legend Ricky Ponting. Ponting had won 30 Test matches in his first 38 Test matches as a captain. After that the name that comes in this list is also of a former Australian legend and that name is Steve Waugh. Waugh captained his team in the first 38 Tests, winning 27 of them for his team.
