- Kohli breaks MS Dhoni’s record of losing most toss in Test cricket
Nottingham: The first Test match between India and England started in Nottingham on Wednesday. England captain Joe Root won the toss and elected to bat first. With Root winning the toss, an embarrassing record was recorded in the name of Indian captain Virat Kohli. Kohli has also left behind former Indian captain MS Dhoni in the matter of this uncharted record.
Let us inform that England won the toss and decided to bat first, but in front of the spectacular performance of the Indian bowlers, the hosts were all out for 183 runs in 65.4 overs in the first innings. Team India’s captain Virat Kohli has become the Indian captain to lose the toss most times in Test cricket. This was the 35th time in Test cricket that Kohli did not win the toss. He broke the record of former captain MS Dhoni (34).
Apart from this, the embarrassing record of the Indian captain who lost the most toss in a Test in a country outside the home has also been registered in the name of Virat Kohli. Kohli lost the toss for the sixth time in a Test match in England. He left behind Kapil Dev, Ajit Wadekar and MS Dhoni. Kapil Dev did not win the toss in five Tests in the West Indies. Ajit Wadekar did not win the toss in five Tests in England.
When will the drought of century end?
MS Dhoni also did not win the toss in five Tests in England. Virat Kohli could not win the toss five times in the West Indies as well. However, Virat Kohli, who holds the embarrassing record of losing the most toss in Test cricket and losing the toss in most Test matches in a country outside the home, has not been doing well for some time. Kohli scored his last international century in November 2019. Since then Kohli has not been able to score a century at the international level.
Many cricket legends believe that Virat Kohli will end the century drought in the Test series against England. Captain Kohli will handle the series with these intentions to score a century and win the series on this tour of England.
