India’s starter Virat Kohli announced his decision to step down as Test captaincy after the Test series loss against South Africa. A few months ago, he had decided to relinquish the T20 captaincy, while last month the BCCI decided to take the ODI captaincy from him and hand it over to Rohit Sharma. Kohli reported this by sharing a note via social media on Saturday night. Kohli is the most successful test captain of the Indian team. Under his leadership, the team won many historic series with brilliant performance. Let’s take a look at his captaincy record.

Virat Kohli captained the Indian team in 68 Test matches. In this, the team won 40 games, lost 17 games and drew 11 games. Overall, the team’s winning percentage was 58.82. Even though the India team missed out on the opportunity to win the first World Test Championship title under his captaincy, the team won many heats with brilliant performance. Under his captaincy, India has won the most Test matches.

Under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, the Indian team played a total of 37 Test matches on foreign soil. Of these, the India team won 16 matches, lost 15 matches and drew six matches. In general, the team’s winning percentage is high even on foreign soil. Kohli is also the Indian captain who has won the most Test matches in South Africa. Due to the disappointing performance of the Indian batsmen, the team failed to win the test series against South Africa and missed out on making history.
