Antigua. The first Test match of the two-Test series will be played between India and West Indies from 22 August. In this Test match, Virat Kohli will have a golden opportunity when he wins and matches the record of former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Not only this, but they will also have a chance when they become the No.1 captain of Team India.
So far, Dhoni’s record of winning the most wins as captain of Team India is in the name. Under Dhoni’s captaincy, Team India has won 27 matches out of 60 Tests while Virat’s captaincy has played 46 Tests out of which 26 have been won.
That is, after winning the 27th Test match, Virat Kohli will be equal to Dhoni and if India wins the second Test played in Kingston from 30 August, then he will tie his head to become the most successful captain.
Former captain Sourav Ganguly is at number three after Dhoni and Virat, under whose captaincy India won 21 Tests in 49 Tests.
By the way, South Africa’s Graeme Smith’s record as the most successful captain in the world is still working.
South Africa has been the most successful Test team under Smith’s captaincy, having won 53 Test matches in 109 matches. Ricky Ponting, who was Australia’s captain after Smith, is ranked number two, under whose captaincy Australia won 48 Tests.
