virat kohli: Is Virat Kohli India’s all-time great test captain? The Lord’s test says so! – analysis of the test captaincy records of the captain of india virat ‘kohli

England has one of the worst batting records in Virat Kohli’s career. In the two Trials played thus far, Kohli’s bat has not flowed significantly. But it was a strategic captain named Kohli who led India to a draw close to victory in the first test. Kohli led India to victory in the second round at Lord’s with a little more wild excitement.

Kohli, one of the world’s greatest all-time hitters, has been criticized by many for not holding ICC titles. Under Kohli’s captaincy, India lost in the World Test Championship final, the semi-finals and the semi-finals of the ODI World Cup. Ahead is this year’s T20 World Cup. But the question is whether there have been any additions by Kohli beyond the ICC title as captain.

MS Dhoni has dramatically resigned as captain of the Indian test team midway through a series of tests abroad. Kohli assumed the captaincy. Kohli’s team is very different from Dhoni’s. If Dhoni was cool, Kohli would be full of aggression. Dhoni is a strategist who leads the team to victory without giving up until the end. But Kohli is a hero who pours energy into the players around him and captures victory.

The same was seen in the Trial of the Lord against England. India made an incredible comeback to a match that was unlikely to be won. Kohli was in the locker room excited like a little boy when Mohammad Shami and Jaspreet Bumra made 89 runs for the ninth wicket. Kohli was confident of retaliating when Bumra was provoked by his opponents.

Kohli also told KL Rahul to identify himself when he threw a cork at him from the audience. It was the same captain who told Steve Smith not to do it to the Covia crowd after the controversy over scratching the ball. When Bumrah and Shami made it to the dressing room after the Trial of the Lord was declared, the entire team, led by Kohli, applauded.

Virat Kohli had hinted at that when he declared the Indian innings for 298 runs. Kohli was sure he was playing to win. He led the attack with four pacemakers at the front. Siraj, Bumra, Shami, and Ishant maintained the trust the captain had placed in them. This aggressive victory proves that Kohli has become India’s all-time great test captain.

According to the record books, Kohli is the most successful test captain in India. Kohli led India to victory in 37 of 63 matches. For second-placed MS Dhoni, it’s 27 out of 60. Kohli is the fourth most successful test captain in the world. With victory in the Trial of the Lord, he surpassed Clive Lloyd. Only Steve Waugh, Ricky Ponting and Graeme Smith are ahead. The time is not far off when Kohli will become the world’s greatest test captain of all time.
