Virat Kohli has won five consecutive Test series to mark a fabulous beginning to his tenure as Test captain. Since Kohli has taken over as the Test skipper, India have beaten Sri Lanka 2-1, South Africa 3-0 (4), West Indies 2-0 (4), New Zealand 3-0, England 4-0 (5) – a record five straight series wins as skipper. Team India have also extended their unbeaten record in Tests to 18 Tests.
Kohli is now just one series win away from breaking an Indian record of most consecutive series win as captain. And the chances of Kohli breaking the record look bright, as India face Bangladesh next in a one-match Test series.
India, under Virat Kohli, in 2015-16 and India in 2008/09/10 are currently tied with 5 consecutive series wins.
India’s record in 2008/09/10 includes five consecutive series win against Australia 2-0 (4), England 1-0 (2), New Zealand 1-0 (3), Sri Lanka 2-0 (3), and Bangladesh 2-0 (2).
