As India clinched the two match Test series emphatically against the listless West Indies 2-0, Indian cricket skipper Virat Kohli added another feather in his cap.

Kohli became India’s most successful Test skipper going past the records held by Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Sourav Ganguly.

Kohli had 27 wins to his credit before the Jamaica Test match, but with the win, Kohli took his tally to 28 wins in the longest format of the game. This was his 28th win from 48 matches as Test skipper. Dhoni had scripted 27 Test wins from 60 matches.

India had registered a comprehensive 318-run win in the first Test match and as a result, Kohli became the most successful Indian captain in overseas Tests. Kohli had gone past former captain Sourav Ganguly to achieve the feat.

This was Kohli’s 12th overseas Test victory. He broke the record in his 26th match as skipper on foreign soil. Ganguly had 11 Test wins from 28 matches.

The emphatic series win ensured that India were now on top of World Test Championship standings with 120 points. This win was the eighth consecutive series victory for India over Windies.
