Virat Kohli new Records as Indian Captain
With the T20I series victory against Australia, Virat Kohli set a few new records as a captain. Virat became the first India captain to win the T20I series in South Africa, England, New Zealand, and Australia (SENA countries).
MS Dhoni had led India to wins in South Africa and Australia but series victories had eluded him as skipper in England and New Zealand.
However, under Virat Kohli, India won the T20I series in South Africa and England in 2018. Earlier this year, India registered a 5-0 clean sweep against New Zealand in New Zealand. The win in the ongoing series in Australia helped the India skipper complete the quartet.
Also, Virat Kohli has become the first India captain and the second overall after Faf du Plessis to lead a team to series wins in all 3 formats in Australia. Kohli helped India to a historic Test series win in 2018-19 after which they registered an ODI series win as well.
