India captain Virat Kohli once again proved why he is admired by all with his latest gesture at Indore after India thrashed Bangladesh by an innings and 130 runs in the first Test to take a 1-0 lead on Saturday. Understandably, after the emphatic win, Kohli was upbeat as he made the day of a little physically challenged girl who was waiting to get a glimpse of him.
When Kohli finally met the fan, he gave her an autograph on a cap she had brought before getting clicked. The moment would have made the girl’s day as she kept smiling as other players along with Kohli walked outside from what looked like the dressing-room.
Here is the moment:
With the win, Kohli pipped Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s record of most innings victories as a result. Kohli now has 10 innings victories, while Dhoni had registered 9 as India captain. Mohammed Azharuddin has 8 innings wins followed by Sourav Ganguly with 7.
The recent win in Indore, which also took India’s tally in the ICC World Test Championship points table to 300, saw Kohli equal former Australia skipper Allan Border’s tally of 32 Test wins and is now joint-fourth on the list of captains with most victories in the longest format.
Former South Africa captain Graeme Smith leads the list with 53 wins from 109 matches. Ricky Ponting is second with 48 wins in 77 matches while Steve Waugh is third with 41 wins in 57 matches.
With the win, India maintains its number one spot in the ongoing World Test Championship points table. The Kohli-led Indian side is yet to lose a Test in the WTC.
