Virat Kohli will be the captain of India in at least 50 games in the past five years ResignHe is currently ranked eighth among the captains with the most games (45 games)-the list is led by the iconic MS Dhoni (72 games)-and may climb to seventh place at the end of the T20 World Cup.
Kohli’s current win-loss ratio is 59.28, slightly higher than his predecessor. However, what is more fascinating is the hot form that India has shown under Kohli’s leadership in the past 24 months: starting in December 2019, India has won five bilateral rubber races in the trot, when it completed 3 -0 US West Indies, by March 2021, when it defeated England 3-2 in India.
Among these victories, the most memorable are the 2-0 win in New Zealand in early 2020-a series of two tied games-and the 3-2 win in Australia in December 2020.

Moreover, India did not lose a T20I series from February 2019 to March 2021. Under the leadership of Shikhar Dhawan, it lost 1-2 to Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka and stumbled into its first series in nearly two years. The match was lost.
Under Kohli’s leadership, India won 12 of the 17 series, lost 2 games, and tied 3 games.
Under the leadership of Kohli, India defeated Ireland in 143 games in Dublin in June 2018 and was undefeated in 11 games from December to December 2019. In 2020-only Romania (12), Afghanistan ( 12) and Australia (12) replaced.
In the combined ODI and T20Is, Kohli has been the captain of India in 205 games-again, he ranks eighth in the captain list of most white cricket teams, which is led by Donny (332). Once again, he has a better win-loss ratio than Duny.
