With 61 Tests to his credit, Virat Kohli overtook MS Dhoni to lead India in Tests.

When he captained India in the World T20 final vs New Zealand, Kohli broke Dhoni’s record.

The New Zealanders and Indians met in the World Test Championship final.

World Test Championship Final: Virat Kohli set a new record when he surpassed MS Dhoni to become the India captain with the most Tests as captain. As captain, he completed his 61st Test during the final match of the series against New Zealand.

Just as Virat Kohli emerged for the toss at The Ageas Bowl with New Zealand’s Kane Williamson, he has set a new record by leading the Indian team in the most Tests. Kohli will lead India in his 61st match as captain of the country in the longest version of the game, which currently is a new record. Dhoni retired from all forms of cricket after leading India in 60 matches in December 2014. Kohli is also the second-longest-serving Test captain for any Asian country, behind Sri Lanka’s Arjuna Ranatunga (Arjuna was the captain of his country in 56 Tests) and Pakistan’s Misbah-ul-Haq (who had captained his country in 52 Tests).

South Africa’s Graeme Smith has the record for the most matches captained, having served as the skipper of the Proteas for 109 games. Australia’s Allan Border is second with 93 Tests as captain, and Sachin Tendulkar is the only other player to have played 100 Tests as captain.

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson, who won the toss and elected to field in the highly anticipated World Test Championship (WTC) final against India on Saturday, had previously done so in other matches. During an incessant downpour, the start of the game was canceled.

The Indian captain, Virat Kohli, quipped, “We probably would have bowled first as well.” Runs on the board have, however, been our greatest strength. Runs on the board, no matter how many, are a strategic advantage in a big final. Such as how you saw our makeup, we’ve prepared for all scenarios.

For the past few months, we’ve done very well in Test cricket.” This is only a pre-tournament match for us. We must conduct ourselves in a professional manner, and follow our pre-determined practices.
