New Delhi: The final of the World Test Championship will be played between Team India and New Zealand from 18 June. In this match, Virat Kohli (Virat Kohli) will do a big feat as soon as he gets on the field.
As soon as they reach the World Test Championship final against New Zealand, they will become the captains to lead India in the most Test matches and by winning this match, they will occupy the fourth position in the list of most successful captains in the world.
Kohli will leave Dhoni behind
Kohli (Virat Kohli) has led India in 60 Test matches so far and is on par with Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni). Kohli’s record of captaining the most Test matches for India will be recorded in the name of Kohli as soon as the WTC finals start on October 18 in Southampton, England.
Kohli (Virat Kohli) would have made this record during the four-Test series against England earlier this year but he could not play the last three Test matches against Australia due to the birth of his first child. Ajinkya Rahane led the team in these matches.
