With Lord’s victory, Indian Skipper Virat Kohli has joined the elite list of the most winning Test Captains in World Cricket. He surpassed the G.O.A.T Former West Indies Captain Clive Llyod with this epic victory. The West Indies team won 36 Test Matches under the captaincy of Clive Lloyd. He was in the Top 5th position.
With 37 wins, the Indian Captain Virat Kohli stands in 4th Position. Graeme Smith of South Africa stands in top position with 53 Test victories and he is followed by Ricky Ponting(48), Steve Waugh(41), Virat Kohli(37) and Clive Lloyd(36).
Virat Kohli has become the third Indian captain to win a Test match at Lord’s after the Legends Kapil Dev(1986) and MS Dhoni(2014). He became the top Asian Captain to register more wins against SENA(South Africa, England, Newzealand, Australia). Virat gets 5 wins against SENA followed by Javed Miandad(4), Wasim Akram(4), MS Dhoni(3) and Misbah-ul-Haq(3). Well, he became the first Captain to declare the innings at Lord’s.
His aggression, grit, passion, and attitude of never giving up is not only behind the team India’s Lord’s success but also every individual player’ performance. In recent times, India has had many stars that rose when the team was in crisis. Right from Sydney victory followed by Gabba and now, Lord’s. All this was achieved by Indian bowlers who rose to the occasion and gave epic victories to the team with their batting and bowling.
Indian Skipper Virat Kohli deserves appreciation for making the team believe that everyone is a champion by injecting the never, ever give-up attitude. Well, team India beat England by 151 runs and created history at Lord’s.
