Virat Kohli Test Record as a Captain
Question in detailSet to be played on December 8 in Mumbai, the fourth Test against England will be an ordeal for Virat Kohli, who as a captain has been unbeaten since 16 matches. Kohli's unbeaten Test streak has brought him closer to break the 30-year old record, which India achieved by being unbeaten in 17 straight Tests during 1985-87. If India finishes the Mumbai Test unbeaten, Virat Kohli as a Test captain will countervail the record. It would be a great achievement for Kohli to equal such a big record on the outset of his Test career.
Records, no matter how small or big, are made to be broken. Kohli, after winning the Mohli Test, equalized Dhoni's record as both the captains in their first 20 Tests have recorded 12 wins, 6 draws and two losses. With a win at Mohali, Kohli as a Test captain added a new record to his name. Under his captaincy, India has lost no match since 16 games. In Mumbai Test, Kohli has a chance to attain another great feat that it is to remain unbeaten in 17 straight Tests. One more win or draw to Kohli's unbeaten Test streak will earn him another milestone.
Will Virat Kohli countervail the 30-year old record in Mumbai Test against England?
