Kohli is already India’s most successful Test captain with 35 wins in 59 Tests. India had won 27 Tests under Dhoni’s captaincy between 2008 and 2014.
Record at home
In the previous Test against England, which India won by 10 wickets, Kohli overtook Dhoni with his 22nd Test win on home soil. Kohli at home: 22 wins from 29 Tests. Dhoni at home: 21 wins from 30 Tests.
