Virat has scored 7962 runs at a brilliant average of 50.39 in 99 Test matches. Kohli captained India in 68 Tests, winning 40 of them. He has a 58.82 percent overall win percentage.

In the final Test of the 2011-12 tour, India was up against Australia. In the first two Tests, the right-hander only managed to score 43 runs. Kohli, on the other hand, hit his first century in the longest format in Adelaide, in the 14th innings of his Test career. He was asked to bat at No. 6 in a middle-order that included Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, and VVS Laxman, and he scored 116 runs in India’s first innings total of 272.
