Virat Kohli on Monday has achieved a rare achievement as the Indian cricket team captain. He became the first Indian captain to win Tests in Australia, England and South Africa. This made him the first captain in Asia to win Tests in these three nations.
Former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who had helped the national team secure the No.1 Test ranking in December 2009, had won Tests in England and South Africa but not Australia.
India’s 31-run triumph over Australia in the first Test on Monday, under the leadership of Virat Kohli, was also a first for the visitors in 10 years. The last time India defeated Australia at home was in 2008 in Perth. This is also the visitors’ first victory in Adelaide since 2003.
The second test between India and Australia will take place at the WACA Ground in Perth from December 14 and other two Tests will be played in Melbourne and Sydney.
