In 2019 Kohli set new heights in batting and captaincy. Kohli is also the highest run scorer in all the formats of 2019.
In 2019, Kohli became the first Indian captain to win a Test series in Australia in 86 years. India finished first in the points table when the group stage matches were completed in the ODI World Cup. But the loss to New Zealand in the semifinals was not easily forgettable.

India have won seven of the eight Test matches they played under Kohli last year. Had it not been for the rain in Sydney, India would have won the draw against Australia. Kohli has also been honored with the title of captain of Australia in the 1986 series, following Kapil Dev. Kapil’s team sent Australia to follow-up in a Test in Sydney, 33 years ago. Not only that, the follow-up to Aussies’ land has come to fruition after 30 years. Australia has not followed in 30 years of Test history since the 1988 follow-up to England.
Kohli became the captain of the team that led India to the most Test wins after winning the Test against the West Indies in Jamaica. Kohli (28 Test wins) has surpassed MS Dhoni (27 Test wins) in this regard.
