Virat has done a commendable job after taking charge of India’s Test side from MS Dhoni.
Under his leadership, the team is yet to lose a series. Virat’s young Test side has already beaten Sri Lanka, South Africa, West Indies and New Zealand.
The series opener will be played at Rajkot and Kohli’s boys will go in as favorites for this high-profile contest.
