Virat Kohli Test Captaincy Record: Stats of India’s most successful Test captain

Kohli’s
decision
was
quite
surprising
but
not
really
untimely
as
India
had
lost
a
Test
series
against
South
Africa
from
a
position
of
strength
after
winning
the
first
Test.

“7
years
of
hard
work,
toil
and
relentless
perseverance
everyday
to
take
the
team
in
the
right
direction”,
the
time
had
come
for
him
to
step
aside.

“Every
thing
has
to
come
to
a
halt
at
some
stage
and
for
me
as
Test
Captain
of
India,
it’s
now,”
Kohli
said
in
a
Tweet.

“There
have
been
many
ups
and
also
some
downs
along
the
journey,
but
never
has
there
been
a
lack
of
effort
or
lack
of
belief.

“I
have
always
believed
in
giving
my
120
percent
in
everything
I
do,
and
if
I
can’t
do
that,
I
know
it’s
not
the
right
thing
to
do.
I
have
absolute
clarity
in
my
heart
and
I
cannot
be
dishonest
to
my
team.

“I
want
to
thank
the
BCCI
for
giving
me
the
opportunity
to
lead
my
country
for
such
a
long
period
of
time
and
more
importantly
to
all
the
teammates
who
bought
into
the
vision
I
had
for
the
team
from
day
one
and
never
gave
up
in
any
situation.

“You
guys
have
made
this
journey
so
memorable
and
beautiful.
To
Ravi
Bhai
and
the
support
group
who
were
the
engine
behind
this
vehicle
that
moved
us
upwards
in
Test
Cricket
consistently,
you
all
have
played
a
massive
role
in
bringing
this
vision
to
life.

“Lastly,
a
big
thank
you
to
MS
Dhoni
who
believed
in
me
as
a
captain
and
found
me
to
be
an
able
individual
who
could
take
Indian
Cricket
forward,”
he
added.
