Kohli on the verge of breaking Sourav Ganguly's record in tests
2017-Nov-13 | By News Admin

India are hot favourites in the upcoming three-Test series against Sri Lanka, starting on Thursday. 

Captain Virat Kohli will surpass former India captain Sourav Ganguly's record of 21 Test wins as captain (49 games), if the home side manages a 3-0 scoreline. Currently, Kohli has captained India in 29 Test matches, out of which they have won 19 games. 

MS Dhoni is on the top of the list with 27 wins in 60 matches. If Kohli's side manages to win two Tests, then he will be on par with Ganguly.

The Kohli-led side is on top form with eight consecutive Test series wins, the latest being 3-0 whitewash versus Sri Lanka in their own backyard.

It all started in Sri Lanka in 2015 and since then, India have beaten South Africa, the West Indies, New Zealand, England, Bangladesh, Australia and Sri Lanka in the longest format of the game.
