New Delhi, Aug 22: Indian Run machine Virat Kohli is now officially the second most successful Indian Test captain after overseeing the 22nd victory of his tenure. He has led India in 38 Tests and has lost only seven of those matches. Nine have ended in draws.
Kohli went past Sourav Ganguly, who also had 21 Test wins after leading India in 49 Tests. MS Dhoni continues to be India's most successful Test captain with 27 wins from 60 matches.
While Ganguly enjoyed a win percentage of 42.85, Dhoni's was slightly higher at 45. Kohli, though, has an impressive win percentage of 57.89.
Kohli took over as India's Test captain back in 2014 when Dhoni retired from the longest format of the game mid-way during the tour of Australia. Since then, Kohli has led India to series triumphs over Sri Lanka (twice), West Indies, South Africa, New Zealand, England and Bangladesh.
