Virat Kohli record as Test skipper is exceptional. He has won 19 matches out of 29 in which he has led the side and he is now only three wins behind in overtaking Sourav Ganguly. The Prince of Kolkata won 21 Test matches out of 49 games in his tenure as the captain of the Indian team.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni has the maximum number of wins as the Test skipper of the India team with 27 wins out of 60 matches. Notably, Virat Kohli has the most impressive win percentage of 65.51. India will take on Sri Lanka in a three-match Test series and it would be a perfect opportunity for Virat Kohli to go past Sourav Ganguly record if the team is able to whitewash Sri Lanka 3-0.

Kohli will know that the real challenge will be there in foreign conditions.

Kohli has led from the front and the Indian team has been able to come up with successful performances under his tenure. It is palpable that India has played most of its matches in Kohli’s captaincy in their home conditions and it would be a challenge for Kohli to come up roses on foreign soil. If Kohli is able to attain the same results in the foreign conditions as he has been able to do in India, then it is going to be really special for him as well as the team.

India will hope that they will continue their domination over the depleted Sri Lankan side and if they can clean sweep them again, then Virat Kohli will go past Sourav Ganguly’s record of 21 Test wins. The Indian team foreign assignment will commence from the South Africa tour and Kohli would want his team to do well there.

India has been on the roll under Virat Kohli leadership and they have looked almost invincible in the home conditions in the longest format of the game. The team is playing as a unit and they are reaping fruits for their hard work.
