Virat Kohli equals MS Dhoni’s record of most Tests as India captain

Skipper Virat Kohli equalled Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s record of captaining India in the most number of Test matches when the 32-year-old led his team out in the fourth and final Test against England at the Narendra Modi Stadium, it became his 60th Test as the skipper of India, and as a result, he equalled Dhoni’s record.

In the previous 59 matches, he has captained India, Kohli has managed to register 35 victories and 14 losses. While ten matches have ended in losses for India. Dhoni-led India in 60 Tests, and he managed to attain 27 victories and 18 losses. In 2019, Kohli had surpassed Dhoni to become the most successful Test skipper for India.


Kohli’s India, 2-1 up after last week’s two-day win at the same venue, need only avoid defeat to secure their place in the World Test Championship final against New Zealand. On the other hand, England is out of WTC’s final contention, and they would be playing just to end the four-match series 2-2. If England win the last Test, then Australia would qualify for the WTC final.
