MS Dhoni captaincy record still a dream for Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli has had a successful home season until the Pune Test, where the visitors Australia thrashed India by 333 runs. With this loss India's 19 match unbeaten streak in Test also ended. And in doing so, the Aussies also made sure Kohli will no longer be able to match a unique captaincy record set by former captain MS Dhoni. Under the former skipper Dhoni's leadership, India had never lost a home Test to Australia. Dhoni enjoyed a classic record against the team from Down Under, winning 8 Test matches. Dhoni captained India to a 2-0 series win during the four-Test series in 2008-09. He then replicated the same in 2010-11. In 2012-13, India decimated the Aussies 4-0 in a series that witnessed Dhoni score his a thrilling double-century. Kohli and his team are still favourites in the ongoing series. But this captaincy record set by MS Dhoni is now beyond the Kohli's reach.
