Virat had dreamed
Let us know that a huge credit for this great game of India in Test cricket goes to the captain of the team, Virat Kohli. Kohli’s hard work has brought the team to this point where all the teams of the world are afraid to play with India. Let me tell you that in 2015, 6 years ago, Virat had a dream for this team that he wants to see India ruling the whole world in cricket for at least 5 years.
This dream of Virat Kohli has been realized after India topped the Test rankings this year as well. Actually, India has remained at the top of the world test rankings continuously for the last five years. This had never happened before. India has consistently topped the annual Test rankings of 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021. Meanwhile, India has defeated big teams by going to their house.
