Captaining the Test side of a country is regarded as the highest honor, the toughest job in cricket. Some players step their own game up as well, while even the greatest cricketers, such as Sachin Tendulkar, and Brian Lara, couldn’t achieve success while under the immense pressure of leading their Test team.

Over the past two decades, Australia, and India have had a stronghold over world cricket, while England, South Africa have also had occasions of glory. Now, the New Zealand team under Kane Williamson, the inaugural World Test Champions, would like to hold the torch.

Virat Kohli has become India’s most successful Test captain. While India remains unbeaten in his reign at home, he carries the ambition to record wins traveling overseas; Australia is checked off the list. How has he and other top captains fared outside their home comforts? Find out.

Virat Kohli has turned the Indian side into a beast.

So far, till the Lord’s Test victory, India has won 14 away Tests under Kohli – the most for an Indian captain.

He has recorded Test series wins in Sri Lanka and West Indies, twice each, and Australia.

Kohli picked the side up from the ashes – from the number 7th ranking – and converted it into world-beaters – India ended as the number 1 Test side for the 5 consecutive seasons from 2017 to 2021. The Delhi-born also became the first Asian captain to register a Test series win in Australia. India then topped the WTC table.
