We all know how Virat Kohli is achieving great heights in his batting. While he has made a big name for himself as an ODI batsman, he has also achieved some noteworthy records in test matches, especially since the time he has been elevated as the team's captain.

Virat took over the reigns of the team from MS Dhoni and has now been leading the team for 4 years. A closer look at some stats for him and the team reveals that he has taken test match batting and captaincy for India to unprecedented levels.

#5 Most Centuries as Indian Captain

New Zealand v India - 2nd Test: Day 5
Virat Kohli has been scoring centuries at will in test cricket

Kohli has always been the master of scoring hundreds, building his innings like a champion batsman and never throwing it away. He has improved himself a great deal in this regard in Test matches since becoming the captain.

In the 35 matches that he has played as the Indian captain, he has already scored 14 centuries, which stands well beyond the great Sunil Gavaskar, who had scored 11 centuries as captain in as many as 47 matches. Needless to say, that every other captain is far behind on the list.
