The Indian team won the record by 317 runs over England in the second Test match and made the series 1-1. It is India’s biggest win over England in terms of runs. It is also the 34th overall win of the Indian team under the captaincy of Virat Kohli and the 21st victory at home grounds. Now Virat has equaled Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s record for the most home wins.
Dhoni got 30 and Virat got 21 wins in 28 matches.
Dhoni has captained Team India in a total of 30 Test matches on Indian soil. In this he got 21 wins and 3 defeats. There were 6 test draws. At the same time, India played 28 matches at home grounds under Virat’s captaincy. It won 21. They faced two defeats and drew 5 Tests. These two have now come jointly in the first place in terms of winning the most number of wins in India.
If you win the next Test, you will be equal to Steve Waugh
If the Indian team also wins the third Test match to be held in Ahmedabad, then Virat’s record on home grounds will be equal to that of Australian veteran Steve Waugh. Virat would then have 22 wins in 29 Tests on Indian grounds. On the other hand, Steve Waugh also won 22 of 29 matches at his home ground (in Australia).
Saurabh Ganguly’s record has been broken abroad
Virat has already become India’s most successful captain in foreign cricket in Test cricket. Under his captaincy abroad, India has won 13 out of 30 matches. They lost 12 and drew five matches. Before them, this record was in the name of Saurabh Ganguly. Ganguly had won 11 out of 28 matches abroad. 10 had lost and 7 were drawn.
England stopped with accurate strategy
Virat Kohli’s captaincy in this Test match was fantastic. Indian spinners bowled faster than the previous Test in this match. Field placements were also such that England batsmen could not play more sweep shots. In this Test, England batsmen were able to score only 49 runs while playing sweep, while in this effort, their 6 wickets fell. In the last Test, English batsmen scored 155 runs on a sweep shot. That too by losing just four wickets.
England could not score 300 runs even after two innings after 35 years
It will be said that Virat Kohli’s captaincy could not make 300 runs even after two innings in this Test match. After 35 years, England’s team has not been able to score 300 runs in two Test innings against India. The last time this happened was in 1986. Then England could score 102 in the first innings and 128 in the second against India at Handingley.
