Virat Kohli†debuted in Tests in 2011 against the West Indies.
10 years later, Kohli is now all set to play his 100th Test match in Mohali, after a glittering run as one of India’s most successful captains ever, apart from claims to the throne of ‘GOAT’ when it comes to his run-making exploits as India’s star bat.
Having donned the white jersey in 99 Test matches, Kohli amassed 7962 runs at an average of 50.39.
Kohli led the Indian team in 68 Tests and won 40 matches, for a win ratio of just under 60 percent.
