Virat Kohli played his first match as Indian Test captain in the Border-Gavaskar series in 2014. MS Dhoni passed on the captaincy baton to a young and dynamic Kohli back then. He scored centuries in both innings but still could not prevent India from losing the game by 48 runs chasing 364 to win at Adelaide. Kohli led India in the first and the last of the four-match Test series.
Eight years down the line, Virat Kohli has given up on Test captaincy winning 40 games from 68 matches that he led India in. He also maintained a winning percentage of 58.82 and scored 5864 runs with 20 centuries as captain.
In this article, we will take a look at the playing XI from the game in Adelaide where Virat Kohli led India for the very first time in Test matches.

Vijay scored 53 and 99 in that particular game in Adelaide. However, despite his best efforts, he could not prevent India from losing the Test match.
