[ad_1]

Virat
Kohli
era
in
T20I
ends;
Who
is
India’s
new
captain?
Rohit
Sharma,
Rishabh
Pant
or
KL
Rahul?

Under
Kohli’s
leadership,
the
Indian
team
has
won
29
matches
out
of
the
45
T20Is
played
under
Kohli.
Kohli
has
an
enviable
record
as
he
is
the
second
most
successful
T20I
captain
of
India
as
his
predecessor
Mahendra
Singh
Dhoni
has
led
the
team
to
42
wins
from
72
matches.

But
India’s
winning
percentage
under
Kohli
is
better
than
Dhoni’s
tenure
during
which
the
side
won
the
inaugural
T20
World
Cup
in
2007.
India
have
won
27
out
of
45
matches
under
Kohli
with
two
tied
games
and
as
many
abandoned,
making
it
a
healthy
winning
percentage
of
65.11.

Virat has been a true asset for Indian cricket; decision made keeping in mind the future roadmap: GangulyVirat
has

Indian

the
future
roadmap:

Kohli
will
be
looking
to
get
his
hands
on
the
ICC
T20I
trophy
next
month
as
it
will
be
his
last
chance
to
add
an
ICC
T20I
trophy
to
his
cabinet.
But
despite
the
result,
Kohli
can
take
pride
of
his
record
as
a
T20
skipper.
Kohli
can
take
pride
from
the
fact
that
the
team
under
his
captaincy
starting
from
2017
has
won
series
in
South
Africa,
Australia,
New
Zealand,
England
and
West
Indies.


Here’s
a
look
at
the
highlights
of
Kohli’s
T20I
captaincy:

  • India’s
    first
    T20
    bilateral
    series
    win
    came
    under
    Kohli
    in
    2017
    when
    the
    team
    won
    the
    one-off
    game
    in
    Sri
    Lanka.
  • The
    first
    series
    win
    in
    SENA
    countries
    came
    in
    South
    Africa
    in
    2018
    when
    India
    won
    2-1.
  • In
    the
    same
    year,
    India
    managed
    to
    beat
    a
    formidable
    England
    team
    in
    its
    own
    backyard
    with
    the
    series
    result
    being
    2-1.
  • By
    far
    the
    biggest
    overseas
    triumph
    came
    in
    New
    Zealand
    in
    2019-20
    season
    with
    Kohli’s
    team
    trouncing
    the
    Black
    Caps
    5-0
    before
    going
    on
    to
    lose
    the
    subsequent
    ODI
    and
    Test
    series.
  • In
    2020,
    India
    bounced
    back
    after
    losing
    the
    ODI
    series
    in
    Australia
    to
    win
    the
    T20
    rubber
    2-1.
  • Most
    recently,
    India
    beat
    mighty
    England
    at
    home
    3-2
    and
    Kohli
    was
    named
    the
    player
    of
    the
    series.
  • Kohli
    remains
    the
    leading-run
    scorer
    in
    T20s
    with
    3159
    runs
    at
    an
    impressive
    average
    of
    52.65
    and
    highest
    score
    of
    94
    not
    out.
