With the victory over England in the second Test match played in Chennai, Indian captain Virat Kohli has registered a major achievement in his name. Virat Kohli has equaled Mahendra Singh Dhoni's record of winning the most matches in the home ground under his captaincy after a 317-run victory over England.
Under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, the Indian team has won the 21st Test. Earlier, under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the Indian team has won the same number of Test matches.
Now Virat Kohli can win these records by registering a win in the third Test match played against England in Ahmedabad. The Indian team has also won 13–13 Tests under the captaincy of Mohammad Azharuddin and Sourav Ganguly.
The world record of winning the most Test matches on his soil is recorded in the name of Graeme Smith of South Africa. He has won 30 matches at home.
