India captain Virat Kohli surpassed former skipper Sourav Ganguly after leading the team to a resounding 203-run victory over England in the third Test in Nottingham on Wednesday.

Kohli, who is an exceptional batsman, is proving to be an outstanding leader too. He has now won 22 Tests as team’s skipper, overtaking Ganguly.

The win percentage of Kohli, as a leader, is impressive. He has won 22 of the 38 Tests at the helm. He lost seven and nine ended in draws. Ganguly won 21 matches as captain from 49 matches (13 losses, 15 draws).

The record for most Test wins as an Indian captain is held by Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He took India to 27 victories from 60 Tests (18 losses, 15 draws).

At this rate, Kohli is set to go past Dhoni. The Delhi right-hander took over the responsibility of captaincy from Dhoni, in 2014 in Australia.

Kohli has had series wins over Sri Lanka, South Africa, West Indies, New Zealand, England, Australia, Afghanistan and Bangladesh. However, except for Sri Lanka and West Indies, all of the victories have come at home.

In the much-anticipated Test series in South Africa earlier this year, India were defeated 2-1.

In the ongoing five-match rubber in England, India trail 1-2. The fourth Test starts in Southampton on August 30.
